Here are the links to my first ever YouTube videos!

I grew tired of no one showing the New Compass with the 6spd, and no one showing it tow. So, I did both. Not anything professional, but it gets the point across.

Finally someone that actually owns it is on the Tube. Got tired from seeing automotive publications that know nothing talking about it although there have been a few, TFL car is one of them.

Got any plans already for future videos?

Thank you! Finally a video of the new compass with manual transmission. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the transmission. I've driven both the CVT and the 6spd auto Patriot. I'd like to know how the 6spd manual compares. I haven't driven the "new" tigershark but the 2.4 block was lacking in power with the auto. Not that I want a drag race vehicle, but wondering if the manual can wring out a little more pep. Thanks again. Hope to see more videos.

Yup. I looked since the summer when they came out. Other than a cheap dealer slide show with pictures, I've found no one in America who has driven one. I've asked Engineering Explained, TFL, and others, to do a video on the manual. Not a single response. No future video plans at the moment. I work 50+ hours a week and am in grad school. Plus 2 dogs and the girlfriend. But, maybe I'll make another at some point.

Thank you. Not a torque machine like my 09 Jetta TDI 6M was, but it gets the job done. I bought it because my '15 Cherokee Trailhawk was having too many problems because I used it off-road. Want a Wrangler, but we want to buy a house. You can do that math! It is smooth and the Jeep drives decent. More shifting on the highway than in my '12 Cummins 6M or my '11 Fronter 4.0L 6M. Seats help make it a pleasant drive. I like getting 28.5+ on the highway now, and 24ish combined around town. Best I'd get on the same roads in my TH was 17. 14 around town. I did the 9spd auto in the TH, it was my first auto trans. Never again. I can get power up to about 4,500ish RPMs, then it just makes noise. I did not buy it to outrun anyone.

Nice trailer, how much does it weigh?
Thanks. I designed it and had it built. Had it up on eBay for the last two weeks, no takers. It weighs 900 lbs empty with 185 lbs tongue weight empty. The Compass did very well. There was no wind though. I pulled the trailer on a windy day a month ago...and the situation was different. I spent a lot of time in 3rd gear. But, it did it.
