Thanks JJ. Informative post. I had a Cherokee briefly as a loaner months before I bought my Compass, and I definitely agree about the NVH. My Compass really has a bounce on a rough road like the one I live on. The mud and ruts have now frozen into a primitive form of asphalt so ya better have a lid on your coffee mug! Comparing before I bought my Compass, I really couldn't see a difference in the cargo space and your post bears that out. I even think the Renegade had a tad more cargo space, and I liked that nifty cargo space down below.
There's no place to stash anything in my Compass' front seat area, so I flip the rear seat divider down and use those cup holders. I'm thinking about some sort of organizer to sit on that divider.
What's the Cherokee V6 like on fuel economy? My Compass really impresses me: 31MPG overall so far, and it was higher before winter arrived, plus I've got snow tires on -- they really increased my fuel consumption.
I'm curious. Does the Cherokee make the grinding noise our Compasses make in the 30-50MPG range?
And how about oil consumption? Our Compasses seem to use a lot. Is the Cherokee is any better?
