Dealer Notes

T he Jeep Compass is much improved over its predecessor, Midway through 2017 Jeep introduced a fully redesigned Compass, it's a good choice if you want a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can still handle a dirt road. If you're looking for a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can also get you out and into nature, the new Compass works well. Jeep made the new Compass more comfortable and enjoyable to drive on the street, where it knows that owners will spend most of their time. You'll like the Compass' easy-to-operate Uconnect infotainment system and the 27 cubic feet of rear cargo space. Fold down the 60/40-split rear seats and there's almost 60 cubic feet of space; plus, the legroom in back is sufficient for tall passengers. Spacewise, the Compass splits the difference between Jeep's smaller Renegad and larger Cherokee. Of course, it's still a Jeep. Most owners will never need the enhanced off-roading hardware available on the Trailhawk model, but it's nice to know it's there if you want to get into a muddy campsite or have to get out of a snowed-in parking lot. The redesigned Compass features a stronger chassis, revised suspension tuning and simplified powertrain choices. The exterior and interior designs are completely new and follow the looks established by the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. Other highlights for the new Compass include new advanced driver safety aids, an improved infotainment system and a new Trailhawk trim level featuring enhanced off-road capability. The trim lines will continue: Sport, Latitude (Longitude, outside the US), Limited, and Trailhawk. Only the Trailhawk is Trail Rated The new Jeep Compass is a continuation of the original concept a tough-bodied, compact crossover with one model engineered for off-roading and three for bad weather, all in a Grand Cherokee-style skin. It carries the Chrysler Tigershark 2.4 liter engine, with manual and automatic transmissions, with a two-liter turbo four supposedly a year or three off. Power ratings are 180 hp at 6,400 rpm and 175 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm, and a peak towing capacity of 2,000 lb (with tow package and AWD only). Electronic stop-start comes with both automatic transmissions, and includes a secondary battery and upgraded components. The engine has coil-on-plug ignition with dual plugs, and an automatic tensioner on the single-belt accessory drive. There is just one engine, with three different transmissions. A Fiat six-speed manual is standard on the Sport and Latitude, with FWD or AWD; a six-speed Aisin is optional with FWD. All wheel drive Compasses can be ordered with the optional nine speed automatic (not a six speed automatic); the Trailhawk is nine-speed only. The nine-speed goes from 4.71:1 in first to 0.48 in ninth, with a final drive ratio of 3.73 (Trailhawks final ratio is 4.33). The stick-shift has a 6.68 gear ratio spread and 4.44 final drive ratio; the six-speed automatic has a spread of 6.64 and a 3.50 final drive ratio. Outside the US, buyers can also get a 1.4 liter turbocharged four, six-or-seven-speed DDCT (the latter only in China), 2.0 TigerShark, and 1.6 and 2.0 liter Fiat MultiJet diesels. Jeep Active Drive (AWD) is optional on all but Trailhawk; Jeep Active Drive Low is only used on Trailhawk, where its standard. The system has a fully disconnecting front wheel drive mode, automatic engagement, and a variable wet clutch in the rear drive module; there is programming for off-road, low-traction, aggressive-launch, and fast-turn driving. Both systems have a a neutral position; the Trailhawk has a 20:1 crawl ratio in low gear as well. Terrain response is automatic. There is no center differential, and both systems rely on the power transfer unit (PTU); they have yaw correction to help with both understeer and oversteer. The system can divert full power to a single wheel. Only the Trailhawk has skid plates; those cover the fuel tank, transfer case, transmission, and front suspension. We dont recommend off-roading with other Jeep Compass models, even with AWD. The Selec-Terrain system provides five models, which work with the Selec-Speed Control and Hill Descent Control systems. The modes are Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, and, only on Trailhawk, Rock. The stability control (ESC) system is off in low gear, fully on with Auto and Snow, and in partial mode for Sport and Sand/Mud. Partial mode reduces traction and stability control, while keeping roll mitigation and antilock brakes on. According to Jeep, the Compass was engineered within the United States; its small-wide architecture was based on Fiats prior small-car setup, but was heavily modified. The Compass will be made on four continents and sold in over a hundred countries. The architecture has modular, interchangeable components with the ability to change the wheelbase, track, overhang, length, and width; thus, the Compass is 2.6 inches longer than the Renegade. The unibody Compass is made with over 65% high-strength steel; the upper body structure and subframe were created as a single unit, and adhesives were used to increase stiffness. The cradle is isolated on AWD Compasses (not on FWD), whichi also have front and rear steel crossmembers and aluminum knuckles which may factor into why the FWD isnt rated for towing. The Compass uses a Chapman (modified MacPherson) suspension, with 8.2 inches of rear wheel articulation and 6.7 inches of front wheel articulation. Koni front and rear struts have frequency selective damping, which filters out high-frequency inputs from rough surfaces, making the ride smoother without sacrificing control. The front crossmember both adds rigidity and a third load line to help in crashes, while a new split shock absorber mounting splits road vibrations to improve acoustics. The rear cradle is solated for the same reason; it also includes attachment points for the lateral links and half-shafts. The steering is electrically powered, with the assist within the column; power assistance is changed based on conditions. The steering torque system autaomtically corrects for surfaces with low grip, and is integrated with the stability control setup to help in split-traction, torque steer, and crowned-road situations. Sport model tires are 215/65R16s, CrossContact LX Sport or Crugen Premium; the Latitude and Limited come with 225/60R17 Crugen Premium or Destination LE2 radials. The Trailhawk comes with Falken WildPeak H/T 215/65R17 all-season tires. Noise was cut back using structural design, as well as frame-under-glass door construction with triple seals and acoustic wheel well liners. As oh2o predicted in Allpar, the Compass will have an 8.4 UConnect touch screen stereo option (with 5 and 7 inch units as well), unlike the Renegades top five-inch screen. This is the new generation system, and the 7 and 8.4 inch systems include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Navigation seems to require the 8.4 screen, but all are faster than prior units. The touch screen has a customizable menu bar, and you can use Send & Go to send destinations from a phone to the car. The new-ish satellite Guardian service provides an SOS button on the mirror, an Assist button to get help for minor issues (e.g. running out of fuel), and lets people start the car and set the temperature remotely. The steering wheel has integrated audio, voice, and speed controls; and all models get a media hub with USB and auxiliary inputs, with an extra USB port on the back of the center console, facing the rear seats. The optional Beats audio system has nine speakers (four 6x9s in the doors, two one-inchers in the rear doors, two 3.5s in the dash, and an eight-inch woofer), with a 12-channel amp. A 3.5 trip computer is standard, a seven-inch unit optional, also as predicted. Either system provides custom options, and provide turn by turn navigation (if equipped). The 7-inch system also shows text messages. Jeep stylists pointed out the chrome trim that wraps around the Compass and its glossy black painted roof (not a decal, but actual paint) as unique features. The chrome slots of the grille are in a gloss-black background; headlamp bezels are also black, and turn signals and daytime running lights are both separate so they can be seen more easily. The optional dual-pane sunroof provides an extra-large opening. The rear spoiler was designed for aerodynamics; the rear wiper is mounted in the glass. Colors are Redline Red, Spitfire Orange, Laser Blue Pearl, Olive Green, Jazz Blue Pearl Coat, Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Granite Crystal Metallic Clear Coat, Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Pearl White Tri-Coat (Limited only), Bright White Tri-Coat, and Rhino Clear Coat (Limited and Trailhawk only). Interior touches include contrast threads in the stitching, vinyl-wrapped door panels, soft-touch center armrest, and chrome vent bezels. Storage includes a mesh pocket in the front passenger footwell for small electronics and a multi-level rear cargo floor that brings up PT Cruiser memories. There are five interior color setups, but they seem to generally be tied to price classes: On all models, the compact spare is optional (except Trailhawk, which gets a full size spare). Sport is the base, with black door handles, manual transmission (optional automatic), clear glass (unless buyers get a package), manual headlamps, no fog lamps, black mirrors (still power adjustable and heated), no roof rails except with a package, 16 inch steel wheels, the small trip computer, air conditioning, ordinary interior lighting, and black cloth seats. Unlike past base models, this one doesnt seem to have been crippled by leaving out items most people want; it even includes the media hub, pushbutton starter, tilt/telescope steering wheel, and rear camera. The Latitude adds the ability to buy many packages and options: towing, power liftgate, auto high beams, HID headlights, black roof, sunroof, speed sensitive wipers, dual-zone automatic temperature control with a filter and humidity sensor, reversible carpet/vinyl cargo mat, 7-inch trip computer, mud mats, AC outlet, heated front seats, power drivers seat, heated steering wheel, satellite radio/services, UConnect 7 and 8.4, blind spot monitor, rear cross path detection, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and alarm. The Latitude also adds body-color door handles and mirrors, deep-tinted glass, cornering fog lamps, roof rails, 17 inch aluminum wheels (with optional 18 inch wheels), rear-seat console (automatic only), ambient LED lighting, vinyl seat inserts, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and passive entry. Adaptive cruise control keeps a steady distance from the driver in front, and can stop the car if needed. Blind spot monitoring uses dual radar sensors to alert the driver, visually and (optionally) wiht a noise, if they try to merge into a lane that already has a car in it; rear cross path detection, a Chrysler first, uses rear detectors to spot oncoming traffic as the driver backs out, very useful in busy parking lots (in our experience, it detects people as well as cars, though thats not something to rely on). The parking system works for both parallel and perpendicular parking, on either side of the car. Other features include rain sensing wipers, hill start assistance (briefly holds the car on steep hills after the driver lets off the brake and before moving forward), trailer sway control, and tilt/telescoping steering wheels.

  • Very good vehicle

    I have owned this vehicle for a short while now and I have seen mixed reviews that are up and down. I was in the market for a new vehicle and bought the laser blue limited model. The vehicle itself looks very stylish, from a distance in the lot I thought it was a Cherokee. Sitting down inside there was plenty of room.Cargo capacity seems decent for a small suv style. The 8.4 inch Uconnect radio was very nice and easy to navigate. There are a ton of options since it is the limited model, the one I was in had a cold weather package (heated driver/passenger seat and steering wheel). Back seat had fold down cup holders and vents for cold and hot air. The pure perforated leather seats are nice. Driving the vehicle feels solid and not loose. The turn radius is good and the vehicle itself is not overly loud. The auto off when stopped is annoying but can be gotten used to over time, I can see if you are stuck in rush hour where this could save a ton of gas. The vehicle accelerates good but not a good idea to jam on the accelerator like its a race car, the vehicle will jerk you.Tested it a little off road,Had superb handing on dirt. Not much more in this class than can handle off road like this did I think. Gas mileage is pretty spot on, I was getting around 25 average Overall I think this is a great vehicle for the price, it was cheaper than a lot of other different cars in the small suv class. I bought the vehicle for city and rural driving and i think it will hold up wonderfully from what I have seen so far.
  • AMAZING vehicle, especially for the price.

    I have recently purchased the 2019 Jeep Compass Limited model. I love everything about it from the high class and luxurious feel to the style, color, driving capabilities, handling, etc. The seats are very comfortable and easy to find the most comfortable driving position. I have seen a handful of bad reviews on the performance, specifically saying that the engine doesn't have a lot of power, but based on my experience of having a small RS sedan previously, the engine has just as much power and pickup, if not more at times. I definitely can't complain about the engine for the size and price of the car. I have now owned for about a week and upon looking at the car with detail, I have yet to find something that I do not like or something that is wrong with it. The best overall car I have ever purchased.

    I purchased a 2018 Compass Latitude 4x4 with a 6-speed manual in November 2017. I have driven it for 3 months and just over 5,000 miles. I love this SUV! Gas mileage is good. I live in the country and have a long commute on the interstate highway to work. Since my driving is skewed toward highway driving, my 28+ average mpg is not too surprising and quite welcome. Take note that I have observed that highway mpg drops off quickly driving faster than 70 mph. I estimate it gets maybe 26 mpg at 75 and maybe 23 mpg at 80. I mostly drive around the speed limit with the flow of traffic which gets me my 28+ average mpg. I can get up to 36 MPG at 50-55 mph. The engine doesnt have much power below 2,000 RPM, so letting the engine rev up the rpms when accelerating helps get it up to speed. If traffic is heavy and I am merging onto an interstate, I keep it in 3rd gear from the ramp speed of 35-40 mph all the way up to 70 mph. Flooring it in 3rd gear gets me to merging speed in good time. At 70 the tach is at ~4,500 rpm so its well below the red line. The manual transmission shifts extremely well and the clutch also works very well. It also seems to have hill control that I do not see documented; when I take my foot off the brake the car holds the hill for a few seconds until I engage the clutch. I do not roll backwards right away after releasing the brake. The brakes are a little touchy, but Ive adjusted to them. Much better than mushy brakes that do not seem to slow the car down. On the road the Compass very composed. Steering is very predictable and it holds the road well. The ride is very comfortable for a small vehicle. The front seats are firm, but I find them very comfortable. After about 4.5 hours of driving with minimal stops I felt no discomfort at all from sitting in it. The rear seat backs seem a little to upright, but I did not find them uncomfortable on a trip. Leg room is good in the rear seats. The reason I purchased a Compass 4x4 was to survive snowy commutes in Western Michigan where lake effect snow is frequent. The Compass, like most (maybe all) Jeeps has selectable 4x4 settings based on the different outside conditions (Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud for the Compass Latitude). Dialing in Snow, locks in the 4x4 and the system tunes it for maximum traction in snowy slippery conditions. I have commuted through several snow storms so far and the Compass gets an A+ for getting through the snow. When conditions are bad, I drive the speed of the vehicles in front of me and give them a long lead so if something happens, I can react. I drove about 110 miles through a snow storm at 35-45 mph on the highway one evening and it was almost RELAXING. Absolutely no drama while driving with a few inches of snow on the highway. My passenger and I had a pleasant conversation while the Compass kept the wheels from slipping during any accelerations. No slipping or sliding at all while moving with traffic. The anti-lock brakes also worked well when I needed to slow down. I cant ask for more. AWD and 4WD systems from different manufacturers are NOT equal. Jeep seems to have one of the best systems around for when the weather gets bad. The infotainment system seems top notch. I have the 7 Uconnect and I have no complaints. The cold weather group is wonderful. It includes the heated steering wheel which is great. Most vehicles only offer the heated steering wheel in the highest trim level. In the Compass its part of an option package, and I wish more cars offered it that way. The storage in back is small enough that using the Compass as a vacation vehicle for a family of 4 could be very cramped. However, with the rear seat backs down it would be great for 2 people to load up and hit the road though. So far, our Compass has had zero repair issues. It has been simply great! I would not trade this SUV for anything else. The combination of fuel economy, ride, options and content, and foul weather performance is very hard to beat, and with incentives, its priced well below most competitors.
