Editor's Overview

As the small SUV field continues to make leaps and bounds, Jeep seems content to move its compact Compass by inches, not miles. In an attempt to catch up the field, the 2014 Jeep Compass gains some new features this year, but it remains saddled with two less than stellar engine choices and an aging platform.

Jeep compass latitude: perfect for leisure and business travel.

I have only driven/owned Jeeps and find them incredibly reliable. I really like my compass latitude - it is not bad on gas for a smaller sized SUV, it has satellite radio capabilities, plenty of space (especially with the seat laid down), heated seats, remote starter, etc. It did have one recall related to power steering, but has not given me any issues. The only additional feature I would have wanted is a backup camera, but it has power mirrors and minimal blind spots, so it is not a make or break. Overall, I have highly recommended both the make and model to many people and will continue to.

If you're buying a Compass, buy it purely for the function and not the form - or you'll end up being disappointed.

My Jeep is a base model, and the seats cause me back pain. It's an all-wheel drive, which is nice, but only a v4. My last car was a v6, and a lot more powerful. The car's speakers also tend to occasionally break on the right side. It's coming close to being warrantee-ending time, which is disappointing. Cars nowadays are made only to last until the warranty ends and then they start breaking. However, it's been a good car to me until this point. It's got me through snowstorms with two feet of snow on back roads, but it just isn't comfortable anymore.

I love my Jeep compass and most importantly the seat warmers!

I love my Jeep. It is spacious. I can throw stuff in it no problem. Would be great for parents with active kids. So much sporting equipment could fit in the back. The back seats fold down for even more space. It is great on gas. About $30 fills it up and that will last me for a week back and forth to work. I live 30 mins from work. The leather seats are very comfortable. Great for cleaning up spills. I love my sunroof. I love my touch screen radio and the Sirius radio capability. I absolutely love my seat warmers for the winter time.

Safety Recalls (2)

Engine Nov 5, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 5, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V552000
Summary:
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2013 Dodge Avenger and Chrysler 200, and model year 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot vehicles equipped with 2.4L engines. Due to abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings, these engines may have a loss of engine oil pressure, possibly resulting in an engine stall or engine failure.
Consequence:
If the engine stalls while driving it may increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module, free of charge. The recall began on December 24, 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N52.

The Occupant Restraint Control (OCR) module may short circuit, preventing the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and side air bags from deploying in the event of a crash.
