2007 Jeep Compass - Lots of potential, but fails on execution.
I bought the vehicle used. I liked that it was a smaller SUV with a 4 cylinder engine but also had 4 wheel drive. The storage it has I really enjoy. I do not like the transmission they put into this years model. It has a CVT transmission that overheats on really hot days and any trip that is over 6 hours. The check engine light comes on all the time and the O2 sensors keep going bad. There is always something going wrong with this vehicle and hasn't been as reliable as my previous vehicle. Performance of the 4 wheel drive is very good. I have not been stuck in the snow or mud. The seats are comfortable and I have not had any issues driving for long distances with comfort. It has a CD player and an auxiliary input for my multimedia devices. I do like the power inverter so I can plug in normal AC accessories as well as the traditional DC adapter socket. The seats go down and the hatch upending up gives a lot of storage for a smaller vehicle. Reliability has not been the best.
