Hey Everyone,
I just purchased a brand new 2014 Compass Latitude 4wd FD1 today. I have been lurking on the forums for about 2 weeks as I have been debating what crossover/SUV to get. I have always wanted a Jeep and this will be my first one. I hope to be able to learn from everyone here and hopefully contribute as well.
Thanks.

Looking to buy a Jeep Compass

Please let us know what you think of your new Compass! My fiancé and I are looking to purchase a 2012 Jeep Compass Sport 4x4. I've been reading the reviews and spoken with lots of folks who have one and they love it. What's been your experience, pro's and con's of your new purchase so far? Thanks!

I love it. I've only put about 30 miles on it so far but it's great. I know the model I have has the newer 6 SPD auto so I don't know how well the CVT in the 2012 compares. 4x4 works great. We had an ice storm today and while other cars couldn't get going from a stop sign or light due to the icy roads, this car in 4wd lock didn't even slip up. The only complaints I have is I don't think my car has auto lights which can be annoying if you're used to that and the space is a little tight. It seems Chrysler left out some basic features that many competitors include standard but my car included heated seats, mirror and remote start so things like auto lights and steering wheel controls for Bluetooth not being included don't bug me. Everything else is great though.

If you are interested in a compass............get one, I've had mine for 3 years now and love it, also had a 2008 patriot prior to my compass (basically the same thing) they have both been great vehicles.

Hi, and welcome! The 4x4 system works very well. Just be aware that it doesn't make it a snowmobile, and you'll still slide like most everyone else when its an ice storm...
