My 2010 Jeep Compass! Hope it helps you decide if this is the vehicle for you.

2010 Jeep Compass Sport

The 2010 Jeep Compass is a sleek looking vehicles that still maintains what you love about a Jeep. The thing I like most is having a versatile vehicle ready to take on the snow or just a drive to work. As far as power, this vehicle delivers. Don't be afraid of the CVT transmission. It takes some getting use to as you won't hear the vehicle change gears because the belt makes it an easy transition. It does come with some problems. Jeep Compass of this year are known for wheel bearing and joint problems. Mine also has drainage problems in the doors when it rains. It has a skipping problem that may be due it needing a tune up, but this car is a beast and is everything I could have hoped for in a Jeep. Comfortable with a lot of legroom. Able to put the back seats down and carry a washer or dryer home. The hatch opens completely up. Mine is equipped with a CD player, heated seats and mirrors, and manually operated seat functions. The heat and air conditioning are great. All in all a compact looking SUV with power, style, and all the features you come to look for in a SUV and a Jeep.

It does not do long distance trips because of the catalytic converter.

2010 Jeep Compass

My Jeep runs good. It need a catalytic converter and tires, at the moment and a new bumper. It's a very basic model. No extra features, but a CD player and power windows, ac and heater. I love that its 4WD. We're from the country, but currently live in the city. So, it's perfect for transition from mountain terrain, to city streets. Its roomy enough for my me, my husband, and our 2 daughters. Although, I do wish it had more trunk/storage space. It has never left me stranded, due to performance issues. It's our only vehicle and even though it needs some work, it manages to get us all to everywhere we need to be and then some. It's a great little ride! However, I'd be totally ready for an upgrade, if the opportunity presented itself.

2010 Jeep compass with touch Sirius XM radio with Audio & photo download option.

2010 Jeep Compass

There is a misfire with one of the spark plugs that correlates with the speedometer and the rpms, not allowing the car to gain speed properly. It is an easy fix though, and also relatively cheap to replace. Absolutely love the touch screen Sirius XM radio, which allows you to download both photos and media to the car/radio itself. It does have an AUX port, which comes in handy if you enjoy listening to Pandora or Iheart radio on your phone while driving. Also love that this vehicle has the option for hands free device connect. The handling of the vehicle is very true to a Jeep, where it handles in any condition.
