Jeep Compass SUV (2006-2016): owner reviews

“The Jeep Compass is a tough and well-equipped rival to the Nissan Qashqai, but a poor safety rating and cramped rear seats mean it struggles against the competition.”

My Compass is an automatic, which I was forced to buy because of my disabilities having always owned manuals. I found it to be extremely comfortable and responsive, well-finished and economical. It is a vehicle that I can recommend to anyone who requires a 4x4 that is at home in any driving situation.

Very poor quality suspension. Had to replace the sub-frame after 9 years. No back up from UK dealership but Americans have extended the warranty for this part to 10 yrs. Airbag warning light comes on intermittently replacement clock spring costs £632.
