2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4X2 2.4L from North America
10/10 - Bang for your $$$$
Nothing so far, the jeep is doing great.
After 7,000 km, I'm totally satisfied with my purchase, it seems to be reliable, the engine (4 cylinder) is peppy for the size of the vehicle. Seats are comfortable, handling is good.
Enough space, excellent on fuel consumption, I have nothing negative to say, I would give it a 10 for bang for your $$$
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Welcome to the Jeep family... as a little brother. You are the Daimler solution to the decreasing demand for large SUVs. And it does not come without a price: shared platform and components with other chrysler products. Older Jeep products where powered by other manufacturers power-trains, but in an exclusive overall design it will never shared with others. With Daimler, all Jeep patents where now available and adapted to the whole Daimler lineup (Quadra-Trac design in Mercedes and quadra-Link in Dodge trucks). For a Jeep purist, these new additions to the brand are the final insult. But welcome anyway, as long as you respect your older brother, the Wrangler, and its attributes, and the honor will be saved. Enjoy the fun through an authentic American icon, with its qualities and faults.

What's this about honoring your older brother, the Wrangler?
I've been a Jeep enthusiast all of my life, and have owned 3 Wrangers - 2 YJ's & 1 TJ - (the YJ's are my favorites) as well as 3 Libertys.
Perhaps you are too young to remember, but when the YJ first came out, Jeep purists were appalled that Jeep dare replace the CJ with the Wrangler and its rectangular headlights - well it turned out that the YJ Wrangler was one of the best products Jeep ever manufactured, especially when they went to the 4.0 inline six and the Aisin 5 speed transmission (replacing the problematic Peugeot tranny).
So just remember when you have the audacity to ask a non-Wrangler Jeep owner to "honor" the older brother, the Wrangler - you really have no idea how many Wranglers, CJs, TJs or whatever they have owned in the past.
So in other words - worry about your own Jeep, and don't be judgmental of other Jeep owners.
