The 2011 Jeep Compass is a reliable and safe vehicle.
The 2011 Jeep compass latitude is very reliable thus far. I purchased it used and have had it for about 2.5 years now. So far I only have had to do standard maintenance on it and nothing major had gone wrong. It is very convenient for transporting large items such as gear for hobbies furniture ETC. You can put the back seats down which created lots of space in the back. It is the perfect size for this. Also, the four wheel drive option performs very well in the snow in Colorado. I have used it many times to get me to and from work in slick conditions and have never slipped yet. This makes it feel very safe. Now onto the drawbacks. The gas mileage is not that great. Realistically it gets about 21 mpg on the street and 25-27 on the highway. Also, it's ability to accelerate to merge into the highway is pretty slow. There is a very hard gear shift that the whole car can feel if you go from a complete stop to attempting to accelerate to get in the highway. This is pretty annoying. Other than that so far this has been a great car for me that really meets my needs overall. If you live in an area that gets lots of snow I highly recommend this vehicle.
