I joined this site last week. Kind of odd I guess since I don't have a Compass. But as soon as I saw them over the summer I knew I wanted one. The problem is, right now I have a year and a bit left on my current lease of a Toyota Matrix.
The good news is I stopped in at my local dealer, in Cowansville Quebec. I told the sales rep right away that I was still in a lease. He still spent a good 45 minutes with me and gave me the keys and let me take thiers for a solo test drive. What a great car.
He did tell me to come back after winter and they should be able to buy out my lease with Toyota and get me into a Compass. This is the first car that my wife and I actually agree on and both want.
The only problem we have is deciding on the little things. I like the green in the sport model, but think black looks better on the limited edition. She wants the green. We aren't sure about the leather seats just because we have a 1 year old baby, but they sure are nice.
We will be getting a manual transmission but 4X4 is still an option. Although my Matrix is 2 wheel drive and it goes well in winter so I assume that the Compass would handle about the same. She really wants a sunroof. Besides that everything else is up in the air. I guess the biggest thing is what model, sport or unlimited.
Thankfully we have a couple of months to look things over
Thanks for such a great website!
