Holy crap! that awesome news!from january of this year to july the compass sold over 25,000 units, almost twice what it did in the entire 2010 model year.
My wife liked the 2009 look as well. She's had SUV's and did not want something that looked like one. The Compass did not and was also 4x4. She used to drive the Grand Cherokee and others and wanted to get away from the typical style which they pretty well all share. The 2011 goes back into the image/style with the new body. I too am happy with the style and find the big round light very effective and quite bright.I just rented a Chevy Cruze for a week. Very nice vehicle, good mileage, good power, handled nicely, but I was very happy to get back in my 2008 Jeep Compass! I still like the looks of it over a 2011 also.
clearly you have not read much on them on this forum. If you;re so inclined you might want to read some of the threads. Either wait tell the end of the year or next years models. They may be better....
we are currently thinking of going to the dealer and make a deal to purchase the new model
they have just as many problems as any other car. what did jeep do to p!ss in your cheerios so badly? i'm just confused as to why you hang around a compass forum if you don't like them, and steer everyone away from them.clearly you have not read much on them on this forum. If you;re so inclined you might want to read some of the threads. Either wait tell the end of the year or next years models. They may be better.
Go to some other car forums and you will see the complaints about them too. Most people will not join a forum until they have a problem and then only to get it fixed. There is a very small number of us Compass owners on here and even fewer that post.Endured regular shuddering and shaking from the CVT since day one for a year and a half. Chrysler refused to do anything saying that was a normal symptom. They were forced to replace it in the end. Head office service is extremely poor. Some other issue which I won't go into. But the track record on reliability is poor expecially on the earlier years.
No others cars and years don't have this level of problem I have had many 4x4 and many Chrysler vehicles and this is the only one I was sorry to have bought in the end. My Grand Cherokee with over 200k on it has been great as was my minivan with 200k and no major repairs or front end work even. Only one tie rod end and one ball joint in 200k.
I am here helping others and watching for info an trends in problems of subsystems.
