Re: New Jeep Compass Sport edition

Looks pretty cool to me too...especially the colors! Don't remember what the back looks like, and I'm just too lazy right now to look for picts. I'll search later for some.

Re: New Jeep Compass Sport edition

The Compass should exterior remake is just a makeover of the poorly built former model, to make it look like the well built WKII. I travel extensively and rent a lot of vehicles so recently rented a new Compass, and it felt like a tin can on wheels. The build quality is very poor and safety ratings, measured with the optional side airbags, are the worst of any small SUV. http://www.euroncap.com/small_off_road_4_4.aspx

Re: New Jeep Compass Sport edition

Looks like crap from the rear, I guess the design went to lunch on the rear. I like the color.

That's odd, it's a top safety pick here in the US.

Re: New Jeep Compass Sport edition

these jeeps always looked to me like they need a 1" wheel spacer.

Re: New Jeep Compass Sport edition

I wish they would get rid of those roof trim pieces that extend down around the front window. Kills the look for me.
