2009 Compass with Manual Windows and Door Locks

My 2009 Jeep Compass is a great ride! It has comfortable, adjustable seating. It does only seat four people which can be inconvenient at times. The rear seats fold down to create a large rear space if you need it. The performance on back roads as well as highway is great. I have manual windows and locks, which is what I wanted because the expense to repair power windows and locks is more, and I know this from experience. I do wish I had more space for items in the front. I would like room for a holder for my cell phone. I do love my Compass other than the lack of space in the front seating area.

Jeep Wranglers non adventurous brother

The Jeep Compass overall is a and part of the Jeep family but far from a actually Jeep Vehicle. It under performs with the 2.4l V4 model, while getting close to 23 miles on the highway and around 19 In the city. But having a 12 gallon tank, it doesn't cost much to fill up. It is not the smoothest ride, and has decent cargo space in back. Overall it has been a good vehicle. But I give it a C in the Family of Jeeps.

Gets me where I need to go!

It is been a really dependable vehicle. I did have to replace the transmission only 2 years after having it, but I believe they've fixed that problem. It is been on several road trips and held up well. Now that it is older, more things are coming up here and there, but it still gets me where I need to go!
