The Jeep Compass is Not Trail Rated & it is Not designed for Off Road use.farout said:We are picking up our Compass Sport on 4/2/07. The dealer got it in today. We went to look at it and it was $250. US more than we were told when we told the dealer to go get the Compass at another dealer. The 26E package went up $250. But that is life. The DCX web site was not correct, oh well. :?
My question is this T lever to put it into 4X4, I don't think it's like our Liberty 4X4. When and how fast can you drive in the 4X4? :?: Does this make it actually a 4X4 or just something to get up a hill in snow. Does it make it more like a AWD? We drove one a month ago but I did not ask enough questions.
Ours is a Khaki as well, with a sun roof and some other things. Did you get the All Terrain tires? We are wondering is these are as bad as our Wrangler ST tires were on our Liberty. We traded those in within 2 weeks Those were the worst tires we have ecer seen in 37 years of driving !
When did you get your Compass? Have you had any problems. Any suggestions ? Appreciate your response.
You are correct. However I think that most people mean that it can only be Engaged @ 10 mph or less. So if you are driving 20 mph you can't put it into Lock Mode - You have to be stopped or going less than 10 mph in order to Activate the Lock Mode. Once it's in the Lock Mode then it works at any speed.oldmisery said:We have used the 4WD lock most of the winter with success. It seems
to be more stable on hills, and slick roads. The AWD aspect is working well
but we felt more confidence with the lock on. Our dealership service
manager has confirmed that the lock functions as long as it is engaged.
According to him, it does NOT cut out after exceediing 10 mph. He did
caution us on using on dry road.
Consumer Reports also rated the Compass @ 22MPG in combined driving so it sounds accurate.kwc said:Here are the revised EPA mpg estimates, using their "new" formula ...
