All New 2007 Jeep® Compass is awarded a “Best Buy” from Consumers Digest®.

:D
The award-winning Jeep® brand recently added another impressive accolade to its long history of achievements, underscoring its promise to deliver vehicles synonymous with fun, freedom, and adventure.

Jeep Compass was presented the impressive “Best Buy” award from Consumers Digest® magazine. A “Best Buy” represents the very best balance of attributes within its class.

Each year the best overall values are selected in 8 model segments, ranging from inexpensive compact cars to premium luxury SUVs. The vehicle’s price, features and accommodations, as well as its performance during test drives are all considered.

When did that happen? I have a subscription to Consumer Reports and I have the issue where they reviewed the Compass and to say the least they were NOT kind. I don't remember them listing the Compass as a Best Buy but I'll double check tonight.

I do remember reading about that,and it wasn't that long ago. I think on one of the auto websites I read a lot was when I saw that, couple weeks ago, maybe. No, when they were first previewing the car, it seemed like nobody had anything good to say. At the time, my thought was, why bother reviewing it if it doesn't even stand a chance? Sounds pretty biased. Seems like the only favorable opinions are from the fans and from Jeep. Maybe now, people will take notice, and the Compass can really be competitive in its segment. We can only hope!

Okay here is the Synopsis from the Consumer Reports Review in the February 2007 issue:

Model Reviewed: Jeep Compass Sport with CVT & 2.4L Engine
Category: Small SUV’s
Score: 51 out of 100 (Compass Score)
Highest Rated: Toyota RAV4 Limited (V6) – Score: 83 out of 100 (Effectively this means that the Compass scored 51 out of 83 or 61.4%) (This RAV4 V6 also costs about $9000 US more than this Compass Sport)
Highs: CVT Transmission, Unusual Interior Features
Lows: Agility, Fit & Finish, Engine & Road Noise, Visibility, Rear Access.

It was Not a CR Quick Pick either.

:(

For comparison the Jeep Liberty Sport (V6) scored @ 42 by Consumer Reports and it costs $4000 US more than the Compass.

PRESS RELEASE
February 21, 2007 Consumers Digest®. ........not Consumer Reports
Okay that explains it. My mistake. I wonder if Consumer Digest is trying to pass itself off as Consumer Repors by having a similar name?
