Compass: a good car for a small family or single person who wants an SUV.
I recently had an issue with the electric throttle control. The part failed and I had to replace it. My car still was under warranty but the part that failed wasn't covered. It was pretty expensive especially because I had to go to a specific dealership garage. Now it is been replaced and it drives differently which is worrying. I did get the most basic model because of my fear of having to replace a lot of features. It does not have power windows or locks which is kinda inconvenient but I do not worry about having to fix the window mechanism as often because I do not roll the windows down very often. The gas mileage is decent for a SUV and it is a pretty swift car when turning and speeding up. The design is pretty cute. It looks like a more expensive SUV. It looks like a more impressive SUV when you are paying for a pretty decent vehicle. It is a pretty small car that would be a pretty good type of car for a small family or young couple who do not want to get a van but need some space. This car gives you that without having too much car. It comes with a portable flashlight in the rear that it is attached to the overhead light. It handles pretty well in the snow and in the rain. But if you do slide a bit there's a automatic feature that shows you and stabilizes you as you drive. The 4WD is easy to find and to kick on. The parts are generally easy to find and do not cost too much to replace. I have found this car to be pretty reliable and easy to drive. I have gone on one road trip in this car and it didn't draw too much attention and was a decent comfort level. It has Bluetooth and the option to have satellite radio.
