The 2018 Jeep Compass has style, substance and impressive technology, all wrapped in a compact SUV form with a tempting starting price around $22,000. The Compass is something of a "tweener,"...

The comfortable and spacious commuter car.

2018 Jeep Compass Latitude

I absolutely love this car it was a great investment. One of the pros about the compass is that it has great features and price points for anyone to choose from. The latitude is a fantastic car and is pretty good on gas. It is not too expensive to fill up my tank and I use synthetic oil which makes it so I save money and time on oil changes. I only have to get an oil change every 6-9 months or about every 9,000 miles. The newest push to start version that I have also has the convenient feature as to where you can turn on your car from your home so that it can begin to warm up. Another great safety feature is that if your car keys are not in the car (this is for the push to start) you will not be able to drive away. So this is great so you do not forget your keys and no one can drive away with your car unless the keys are directly in the car. It is super comfortable I take frequent road trips with friends and family and everyone always feels safe, it is very spacious. I also just mention there is a lot of trunk space to pack things into the car it is amazing. The few cons are that the brakes get shaky at times even tho the car is new. Sometimes the touch screen radio and map features get frozen easily or the volume for the car radio will seem to freeze also. Another thing for some drivers they may not like is the fact that the brakes are very touchy so you need to be very light on your pedals.

My opinion on the 2018 Jeep compass.

2018 Jeep Compass

It is new with many current technological features. It is equip with Apple CarPlay which allows me to access my Apple iPhone into the car. It does not come with a GPS system. However, with the CarPlay I can use my navigation apps on my phone through my center monitor. The car is great on gas and gets around 43 miles per gallon. The 2018 Jeep compass comes with new high-end rims that do not wear and tear as easy as older vehicles. The interior is very spacious and comes with letter seating. Along with many features it also has auto park driving. When on, it turns the car off when idle for long periods of time as a way to save gas. Another great feature in the compass is the ability to switch the driving type when driving on rough terrains. It comes with sand, mud, and snow. The design of the compass can be defined as cutting-Edge, sleek, and modern. I feel completely safe when driving it and have not had any issues with it so far. It comes with a year free subscription to Sirius radio. It can be kind of confusing with all of the different features but it is also nice that it comes with all of them. There is not really much else to say about the vehicle. Jeep has always produced quality cars and are always reliable in my opinion. The cost was reasonable to work with. It definitely makes me want to continue buying Jeep brand vehicles in the future.

Overall I enjoy driving this vehicle and love the sleek design.

2018 Jeep Compass Latitude

I truly enjoy riding my jeep compass! It is drives very smoothly for a 4x4 and drives great in snowy conditions and deep snow. The standard auto start feature is a bonus that I didn't expect to enjoy as much as I do. I also enjoy the lane sense feature. It makes it difficult to go over the line and possibly cause an accident. It also breaks for you to avoid an accident if the car in front of you gets too close. This feature actually shocked me one day because I wasn't expecting my car to just stop but it clearly avoided an accident that was about to happen. The car in front of the car in front of me happened to stop short to avoid hitting a deer. I love the automatic seats. Some other standard features are the heated seats and heated steering wheel which I am starting to enjoy in the cold weather. It definitely comes in handy and heats you and your passenger up very quickly. Although the heating and air conditioning system works very fast to heat and cool the car. I do wish there were vents for the back passengers also. One more thing that I would add to the wish list is the passenger seat to adjust and go lower I feel it is too high that my head is too close to the roof of the car even at the lowest setting. Overall I am happy with the vehicle and it is performance.
