My fiancé and I are looking to purchase a 2012 Jeep Compass Sport 4x4... What are some of the pro's and con's, experience that you had owning a Compass?

Have you driven one yet? I rented both the Compass and Patriot (as well as some competitors), and didn't like the CVT. I waited until they put the 6-speed transmission in the 2014 and bought one then. It's a nice little vehicle, and my wife likes it, too.

I have a 2012.............and I love it.

If you are looking for a vehicle that goes fast, a compass isn't the one for you.

The CVT takes some getting used to, it makes the vehicle feel slower than it really is, having said that though it isn't a bad transmission.

They are decent on gas and the 4x4(awd) system is very good in slick conductions, especially snow.

Some Compass' have some suspension components that end up wearing a bit faster than normal, however they aren't difficult or expensive to replace with aftermarket. Just make sure you get the vehicle inspected thoroughly by a mechanic prior to buying it.

You can also mod them pretty good too :giggle:
