Bluetooth audio, easy set up, phone jack etc. To me it makes a great family car.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

My Jeep Compass sometimes has engine problem, I assume due to the climate of Hawaii. But also, it's radio may act up at time and if the car runs for a long period of time, it may mess up the battery. But other than because of how often we use it, the car itself is nice and spacious for a small vehicle. I, 5'7, my father 6'2 and my mother can fit comfortable with enough leg space. Also the back chairs are adjustable and can be put down to increase trunk space. The sound system is easily controlled by a touch screen between the driver and passenger. Of the time the car was release, 'car cams' were a bit newer and this compass was the NEW thing.

- Jay A

I love the fold down back seats and that it has a spare tire with jack.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love my Jeep it is the perfect size for someone as tall as me, 5'11. But not too big to where it uses too much gas. My biggest issue is when I got it the cable in the driver side door for the window snapped out of nowhere- hadn't had the car that long either. I have two small kids and they fit perfect but If I wanted another I might have to invest in a larger SUV. It is a basic model that has no USB insert or Touch screen, but it is still fine without it. I use the car/phone connection and it is also very basic but it makes it easy to use also. Overall I love my car and have had it over a year and only had one issue with it.

2016 Black Jeep Compass!!

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love the size of the car. It's a perfect midsize vehicle. For the most part I do not have serious issues with the car. One problem I do have is whenever I have my car worked on, sometimes the lights will come on after. And after a few days they go off. I drive a lot and far distances and it is a very comfortable drive and also ride. I had a standard radio currently but have thought of changing it. I would definitely chose this car again!

- Til B

Love my Jeep Compass, would not trade my car for anything else

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love this car it's super reliable, has 4 wheel drive. AC and heat, has a sunroof, a lot of trunk space. Super easy to drive. It has controls on the steering wheel for easy access. Like the volume for the radio and to change the station. Jeeps are super reliable cars and I've wanted one for so long. I'm so glad I got my compass. It's also a good family car lots a room in the back seat. It fits 5 passengers comfortably.

- Haley M

A Smooth Ride: Good and Reliable

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I personally do not have any issues or problems with my Jeep Compass Sport. The version of my car does not come with Bluetooth or a backup camera which comes in most new vehicles, but not this one. The gas tank is smaller than the standard size gas tank, so you will need to fill it up more frequently. Besides that, the Jeep Compass is a good and reliable car. It has a smooth ride and is very spacious.

- Sara B

The interesting detail is my jeep sits higher than most and its not lifted.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

My car is really good perfect for. First family looking for a safe car. It comes with standard features however you can upgrade like I did with Bluetooth, Sirius, power windows, shifter, phone connection. Only fault is it does not have screen in the car just buttons. Also, the heat is fantastic but no heated or cooled seats. I do not have a sunroof but the new versions you can upgrade to one.

- Maya H

It is a great buy for the money.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Love the size and space of the car. Have not had any major problems so far at 80,000 miles. I make sure to take it in for regular oil changes and maintenance. The only thing I dislike is the lack of power when accelerating, I have to be mindful when getting on the freeway or pulling out onto a busy street that I have plenty of room so my car has enough time to get up to speed.

- Christy B

Jeep compass. Smooth ride and plenty of room.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love my jeep compass. I specifically wanted it to have four-wheel drive due to the winters are harsh in Kansas. My jeep is sturdy, rides smooth, and is user friendly. I do not have all of the gadgets, but I love the back up camera and the touch screen. It has plenty of storage and leg room for those in the back. My wife has a hard time driving it partly because she is 5'1.

- Brittany O

The shape is very sleek and modern.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I really enjoy my jeep compass! When buying a new car I wanted something that I felt safe in. With a medical condition I wanted something that fit my needs but still looked great!! This girl has style and this jeep has it too! It allows me to talk hands free over my speakers, has satellite radio! Rides the roads very well and I don't feel like it has more control.

- Nikki B

AC, comfortable easy to clean seats, red shiny color

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I have a Jeep Compass 2016 Red and honestly I can say that it is very comfortable and a great family car! Space is a little limited but is great for a 3-4 family group. The vehicle I have is very basic no special features it would be nice if extra effects where included although they are not needed. I've had this car for 4 years and so far I had no big issues.

- Brenda R

2016 Jeep compass one amazing vehicle

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Honestly I love everything about my jeep. I just don't like that it doesn't have 4 wheel drive or a sunroof. It also doesn't have a backup camera. I have leather seats with fabric in the middle. They are heated in the front seats. The air conditioning and the heat is perfect. It drives beautifully. I haven't had any problems. I would recommend it to anyone.

- Brittany R

About My Jeep Compass 2016

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love it but on the other hand it could have been more of a luxury vehicle and it takes a long time to pick up speed. Also the front wheels tend to rub a lot and dust keeps getting into the brakes making it squeaky when you push the brakes. Other then that I love the car it's plenty of room for one person are even a single family

- Angel B

My jeep works perfect for me.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love the jeep it has many great features and lots of space to travel with. My only problem with the jeep is power it does lack in the acceleration department. It takes a few minutes to reach decent speeds. Great size, great safety, does what is needed for being in the lower class of jeep models. Besides that no complaints!

- Jason M

Stylish, safe and comfortable

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love the heated seats, especially in the winter, but I also use them on my commute home from work when my back is screaming. The stereo controls on the steering wheel keep my eyes on the road and my hands on the wheel. Back seats easily fold down to load up anything from groceries, Christmas trees or the sandy, wet dog.

- Char G

Comfortable driver, not a lot of pickup however...

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Comfortable vehicle, no get up and go, weak 4 cylinder, front wheel drive, wish I would've shopped more. Alloy wheels were trashed in a year, no off roading, mostly town/city driving. Nice features, good sounding radio, a lot of room in the hatchback, good on gas, I wasn't wanting a grocery getter but that is what I got.

- Jere H

The jeep compass: large SUV feel in a small package.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

The tires wear fast, and the power steering fluid goes fast. I like the manual/automatic shift for 6 speeds. I like the jack for smartphone and mp3 players, so you can play your own music. It feels pretty roomy for a small four door sedan. The automatic doesn't change gears, but gets to the speed you need pretty quick.

- Ben G

2016 Jeep Compass reviewed

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

The compass is a reliable and stable vehicle. The 4x4 is stronger than expected for a small SUV. It has Average amount space on the inside. The gas tank is a little small. The 4 cylinder engine provides plenty of power. Handles mountain roads like a dream. At 6'3 I wish it the driver seat could go back a little more.

- Chris C

Perfect small sized SUV with LOTS of space!

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

This is a wonderful car! Very smooth ride and very spacious. It has the look of a nice car and the sporty feeling of a Jeep in one. We love to travel often and has plenty of room for everything we need. I feel very safe in this vehicle. My only complaint is wishing the gas mileage was better. Still worth it!

- Kia D

Adventure Car great for everyday use as well

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Comfortable, fun for road trips! Spacious and still fits in a compact parking space. Gets decent gas mileage, seats fold down for camping or transporting a kayak. Some of the plastic fixtures have broken, but I'm not sure what they were needed for. Holds bike rack well and is a great car for daily use.

- Amanda B

On the outside it seems to be a smaller but seems larger on the inside.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Very good gas mileage. Maintains a good look. Simple to use four wheel drive lock switch. Handles the road well in all weather. Maintains well in snow and ice. Rear seat fold down for extra storage. Hatchback opens and closes easily and is constructed well so it functions in all weather without issue.

- Troy T

It's a car for every day of the week. Good for trips and families.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

My jeep is an extremely reliable vehicle that normally only requires routine maintenance. It is very comfortable and fuel efficient. It holds everything I need it to and cleans up easily. I would happily purchase a new jeep but I feel I may need a larger model. Excellent vehicle overall.

- Elizabeth R

The compass is a dynamite little vehicle that really meets our needs.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

My vehicle is a 2016 jeep compass sport that includes a fuel efficient 4 cylinder engine, 4 wheel drive, automatic transmission as well as power windows, power locks, rear defroster, rear wiper and of course air conditioning. I used to sell jeeps and know they are the best SUV available.

- Kevin H

Love my Jeep! I wouldn't want to drive anything else!

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

My sensor lights are always coming on, but other than that I love my Jeep. It's the third one I've owned. I have 3 boys who all play sports, and I have plenty of room to lug all of their bags and coolers for games. This will always be my go to vehicle !! The gas mileage is great!

- Gabrielle P

Reliable and efficient crossover

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Vehicle is smallish but comfortable for up to 4 passengers, though it can accommodate 5. Cargo space is decent, and second row seats fold down for more space. All controls are easy to use. Vehicle has decent gas mileage with decent handling and acceleration, and it is reliable.

- Terry A

Not great, can't wait to trade in.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Performance is okay. Handles a little rough. The packages are scarce for the price; had to go mid level just for basics like satellite radio and power windows. Radio display was subprime, paid for after market upgrade. No daytime running lamps. No back up camera unless luxury.

- Jennifer M

I wish it had a sunroof. More trunk space.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I like the jeep. How. I find it to be reliable and comfortable. I do think it is small inside. I have a big dog and he has problems standing in the back.. I think this jeep would be perfect for a small family or single person like me.. I haven't had any problems with the car.

- Trish K

The door handles are higher up on the door than other vehicles.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

My jeep is very comfortable especially for long rides, it doesn't use much gas and I haven't had any problems with it so far. It's good in the snow along with muddy conditions as well. May be somewhat slippery in the snow but has four wheel drive along with traction control.

- Darie B

Decent car for a great price

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Car drives great. Can be a little noisy on the road. Engine running great. My car has some miles put on it due to long trips and traveling for work. No complaints. Did change spark plugs at 80 k, but that's about it. Overall it is a great car and I would highly recommend.

- John S

Affordable, reliable, comfortable!

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love my jeep compass. It is a good size for me. It's the third jeep vehicle I have driven and I love the comfort and reliability of the vehicle. It gets pretty good gas mileage, it is easy to maneuver, it is the right size for me and I can haul things. I love mine.

- Mandy V

Jeep compass is a great first car for young adults.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love this car. Its affordable, drives smoothly, and has a sleek look. It is compact but still roomy enough and comfortable the only problems I have had are electrical. When it gets cold the headlights sometimes flash and the windshield wipers go off by themselves.

- Stephanie D

Why my jeep compass is great.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I love my jeep compass. I only have to fill the tank once every 3 weeks, and I drive over 20 miles to work a day. It is comfortable and smooth over the pothole filled roads of pa. . It has so much room, for our large grocery orders, and for our expanding family.

- Sarah P

To many mechanical problems

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Definitely not a smooth riding car. I've had more mechanical problems with this car than any car I've ever owned. Put a lot of money into fixing the car than actually enjoying it. I will never purchase a Jeep Compass again. I guess you pay for what you get

- Jessica C

How I feel about my jeep compass.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Heated seats are awesome. It is great in the snow, spacious and very reliable. Tires are kind of expensive, I just had wheel sensor go bad and the cost to get that fix is ridiculous for a 35 minute job. But overall I really love and enjoy my jeep compass.

- Nicole K

Buy compass with caution.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Lot of front end suspension problems. Also bad sensor replaced which had recall. Told by mechanic that replacing suspension is common for this vehicle. Bad gas mileage. This vehicle should be 6 cylinder engine. Rear spoilers very loose when it was bought.

- Erin M

Fun to drive vehicle with lots of great features.

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

I bought my car in 2016 and have had good gas mileage with a beautiful interior, folding back seats, easy maintenance, ltd electronics. It is a joy to drive, and I have owned for 3 years and still enjoy the vehicle and definitely would buy a jeep again.

- Kelly A

Good vehicle. Gets me to where I need to go and then some

2016 Jeep Compass Sport

Drives smooth. Gets around 25 mpg in city driving. Performance in general is good, not too bad when keeping up with maintenance. Easy to engage four by four, with lever. Does notify when oil change is needed, usually around a four thousand mile range.
