You'll Like The 2007 Jeep Compass If...

Compass is a Jeep for people who don't own one. A compass, that is. So we think you'll like the Compass if your drawn to the Jeep brand but don't consider yourself a serious off-roader.

Owner Reviews

My best little car! Dependable, has everything except a/c seats. Lol.

Easy to park anywhere, great mileage. Love that I can fold down back sit and haul extra items. In addition, now that it is winter and cold in the mornings, great to have heated from seats. My car has been extremely dependable. Low maintenance. The only fall back is that you need to take it to a Jeep dealer to have the transmission fluid checked. However, per the owner's manual fluid should be ok per the lifetime of the vehicle.

The thing I love about my Jeep compass.

I have a black Jeep compass. It is a SUV but on the smaller size of one which makes it a perfect in between. It has plenty of truck space and if that is not enough I can put the back seats down. It has a middle console that has 2 areas which is great for putting small object in. One of my favorite features is the small open "cubby above the glove compartment. It gives me a space to put my wallet and sunglasses for easy access.

Family vehicle. But has zip so it can get up and go when needed.

Very comfortable. Handles really well, good on gas mileage. Maintenance is not very expensive. Have owned for 11 years, only real expensive part replaced was an electrical control box and doing the transmission flush. Provided enough room inside until we had a 4th child, so we had to upgrade to bigger SUV. But fit 2 teenagers and an infant in the backseat before the upgrade. Still own.
