I am looking at purchasing a 2007 Jeep compass that has about 60.000 miles. How many miles can I expect to get from the 4 cylinder engine assuming it is well maintained?

Thanks

0 because im going to tell you that it's in your best interest to not buy one! unless you want to replace expensive parts all the time im at 160,000km and i have had nothing but problems. there is another member on the board with issues aswell the transmissions are garbage and the whole suspension system is terrible. do you want to be replacing tierods every 30,000 km? how about control arms... better yet my rear trailing arms are both shot and some other linkages. i had alternator number 3 installed last month. save yourself a headache and don't buy a compass!

If worried about the reliability and quality can always go to a new 2011 Compass, if money permits :)

Well its out of warranty so expect to put a lot of money into it in repairs. The 2007 had plenty of wear out early issues which carried on to the newer but the statistic appear better for the 2009 & 2010. Go with a new or very near new with the full warranty on it stil at minimum.

Or you'll be sorry. Big time sorry!!! Or better still buy something else.

I own a 2008 Compass, 2.0L, FWD and i'm at 225,000KM, I've only had one major repair ($$$). and maybe 1500$ of parts other than brakes and regular maintenance put in it since owning it.

I'm currently at 196,000 on my 07 jeep compass limited 4wd. Had to replace CVT tranny @ 173000 miles which was a bit of a nightmare but now it's essentially a new vehicle so I plan to keep it running 300,000+ miles. Ofcourse you have to do new suspension which i have, have done lower control arms twice.... but besides that its running good. Keep up on oil changes and minor maintenance and it'll all work out.

We bought a 2007 compass 2.4 FWD with 130k miles and we've had it 12 months now without a problem apart from her leaving lights on and draining the battery and locking the keys inside it, it's cost us nothing but gas and insurance, it runs great like a new car and is so economical. So yeah I'd buy one with 60k miles.
