Customer Service: 1.0 Quality Of Work: 1.0 Friendliness: 1.0 Pricing: 1.0 Overall Experience: 1.0

When you go in their everyone is quick to help you and get you the loan for the car of your dreams. Once the loan is supposedly approve you go to the finance dept. and do all the paperwork. You leave and two weeks later they call you to tell you that the loan didn't go through and that you need to come and redo paperwork with a higher payment. When you ask why it took them so long they just say well the bank rejected it and they expect you to sign everything again and they dont want you to ask any question. When you challenge what they tell you they get upset and act like you are causing them issues If they would have done their job right I would have to go and waste my time again with them. Of course by the time we go again they all have attitudes and arent friendly any more. I have bought about 10 new cars in my life time and have never gone through unprofessional like this. They need customer service 101 from their sales associates to their manangers!!!!!

I have had this car as a rental for 3 days with 14 more to go. I am parking it under a tree in the hope tht it falls and I can get a replacement!I I can put up with the ride, handling, quality of interior as I expect rentals to be basic and hammered by previous renters but the vehicle is underpowered to the point of being dangerous and the auto gearbox is so badly set up it can't safely use the limited power available. In addition at low speed the power steering very heavy. I have been coming to Florida twice a year for 15 years and this is the worst car I have ever had. I have not had to fill up with petrol yet but the way the needle is dropping I suspect I will be lucky to get better than 25. I get twice that at home (UK) in an Audi Q3 with about twice the power. I will remember the car and be sure not to choose it next time.

The worst.

Rented this car for 8 days while on vacation. This car has the worst pickup/power of any car I have ever driven. Had to be very careful when pulling out into traffic. This is rather difficult to do to begin with when you're in Orlando, FL, but when you are driving a car with so little power as this car had it's dangerous. Gas mileage is terrible. Drove about 150 miles and used over 3/4 of a tank of gas.

Worst Car Ever

The gas mileage sucks! I have had nothing but problems since I have leased this car. Needed a new strut the first month, the brakes squeak and squeal so loud, the driver seat squeaks, poor built vehicle. The dealership where I purchased is no help at all!! Will never buy jeep again!

Slow and dangerous

I rented this car for a few days and it is slow and dangerous, the power delivery is terrible. I was coming to a yellow light so I had the gas pedal to the floor and it just bogged down like it was low on power and the transmission did not know what to do. The engine is loud and the way the power is delivered is bad due to the low power and how the transmission is programed. I was the only person in the car so if it gets loaded with people or cargo it must get worse. They should fire the people who designed this car and the person who signed off on this inferior product. I consider this car dangerous and frustrating to drive.

few problems with it

I rented this vehicle for 2 weeks due accident with main car. It isn't a bad vehicle to drive, has pick up on the highway, passed other vehicles with no problem. A little road noise, can feel some bumps on poor roads. Gas mileage isn't too bad, doesn't take much to fill up gas tank. Only problem I found was that it didn't have electrical seat mover. My mom kept hitting her legs on the handle mover under the seat-they stick out a little too far. Not sure I would buy one, but it wasn't bad to drive. Front seat was fine for a 5'7" person. My mom is 5' so back seat was fine for her, otherwise not sure how it would be for a taller person.

This is why you are losing to Japn and Korea

I rented this car while my VW Tourag was in for repairs. Mine is 10 years old with 120k on it and I would buy mine again before I would even consider this vehicle. It has NO power, wont get out of its own way, pulling out onto busy highways is a challenge. The fuel economy is terrible, probably 18-ish for an underpowered 4 cyl. This was all of the SUV's Enterprise had on their lot and I know why. I can honestly say the $50.00 rental was well worth doing a review of this piece of junk. I cant believe Fiat/Chrysler would have this in the line up at all. For a 2016 vehicle, it had no USB, only one! 12v outlet, crappy radio that kept going in/out daily for 5-10 mins at a time, and tires roaring at 65 mph and up. This vehicle only has 10,000 miles on it! Have driven rentals from VW, Hyundai, Toyota, they blow this thing away. Out of curiosity I looked up the price and for 26k, you don't get much here. From now on I think I will rent any vehicle I'm considering for several days of real driving before I bite the hook. I would be soo mad if I bought this based on a round the block test drive with a salesman blabbing non stop.

Horrid car

We own a 2010 Ford Escape, and got this as a rental when we were in an accident. I thought I was not a fan of the wife's Escape, but was wrong, as it is a 10 times better car than this Jeep.The vehicle is smaller in every way. I am 6 feet 4 inches tall and would like to rip the rearview mirror off as it is very low and in my line of sight. The car only has one power port, really yes one... My 10 year old truck has two. We had to take it on a 400 mile round trip over the weekend and it only got 23 miles to the gallon on the Highway. The escape always gets about 26. How does a smaller, newer vehicle get worse fuel economy. Do not buy this car.

I got to drive this as a rental. It has about 6k miles on it. Getting in and out is a pain. The seat falls to adjust. The engine is weak. This car is garbage! Do not buy this vehicle.

Rental while own car is repaired. Admittedly we were given what must have been the base model (at least I hope so!) because the seat had only manual for and aft, and seat back rake adjustments, it is like sitting in a bath tub. Noisy, almost dangerously slow for getting onto freeways. Harsh ride. The radio/cd player looks like it's from 1990. No USB port. Interior lighting controls a mystery to operate. A classic example of you get what you pay for I guess.

Not flashy, not fast, this little car is a trooper. Good solid ride. Not a zippy vehicle, but it moves steady. Reliable, fabulous electronics (satellite radio, navigation and Bluetooth, plus all the basic) and comfortable. Design is attractive and timeless, we have a sunroof and really enjoy it. The interior is super easy to maintain thanks to the heavy plastic and solid moulding, so hope to get longer life than the previous leather we had which suffered from sun exposure. We are pleased with this basic vehicle that rocks steady performance. Nice to,have a car we can afford and be proud to drive and be seen in.

Not for nothing, I'm a little tired of all the hate this car gets. It's funny how in this review the 430N Uconnect radio is made fun of but when it's ported to a wrangler it's totally fine. Look, at the end of the day if you came into a compass wanting to hate it, you will. However, if you loosen your expectations, I think you may be surprised. Lets face it, it's not made to be an off road king, a fuel saver nor an SRT. Its a cheap Jeep that gets you a decent amount of features with the High Altitude sub trim and some confidence in the snow and that enough if you ask me, considering you can lease one for the $200 per month mark.

Piece of Junk!

This Jeep was a loud, gas guzzling, bumpy ride! I was lucky I was just renting. The only thing I liked was the new car smell. I never had to fill again before getting to Las Vegas from L.A. I would never buy this car. My Hyundai had more pick up.

Never, ever buy this car

While our Honda CRV was in the shop a couple of weeks after a collision we had the opportunity to drive a 2016 Compass. This comparison is being made to the CRV and the RAV4 that we previously owned. Overall the three vehicles can't really be compared because although they are in the same price range they seem to be in totally different classes of quality. The materials, technology, drive and overall feel of the Jeep Compass is far inferior to either the CRV or RAV4. What bothered me most about the Compass was the seemingly lack of logic when it comes to the design of the vehicle, such as extremely poor layout of gauge instruments, poor lighting and control buttons for audio that just don't flow well. The acceleration of the 4 cylinder lacks a lot as it seemed to really strain to gain speed getting on the interstate. In addition the air noise coming through the windows seemed to indicate that there was some problem with the seals around the windows. The vehicle we drove had 12,500 miles on it so it was fairly new but it seemed to drive like a very old vehicle.

great jeep

I made a great deal on this mini SUV (I also own a large Liberty Jeep 4X4). It is almost as if the editors didn't even drive this SUV. Granted I would never have bought a Jeep with a CVT transmission, but when they offered this 4X4 with a 6 speed auto it was time to look closer. I bought the high altitude addition after a test drive that was unexpectedly brilliant. Make no mistake this not a back woods SUV but an Urban 4X4 traveler. The power leather seats, one button 4X4 engage, back up camera, cruse control, leather steering wheel with full controls and 430 digital touch screen with HHD make this SUV a joy to drive! The sky roof and the mentioned options give this mini SUV a very refined ride with the 17" all season radials...I guess I'm miffed at the editors opinions of this SUV. I would recommend this Urban SUV to anyone...just skip the CVT. Also, all those other manufactures, like Honda, have gone to the CVT transmission so beware. Again it's like the editors didn't even drive these cars!!!

Great Jeep

Great steering, braking and acceleration. Nice cockpit display and instrumentation panels. Radio and satellite radio was a bit cumbersome at first but go the hang of it. Back seat is not very comfortable if you are not skinny and cargo space is decent.

I like it. It's not perfect but,

I have owned many vehicles from a lot of manufacturers and purchased all of them new. The Compass isn't the best or the worst, and it certainly has its place. The intended use is for a 25 mile commute 1 way, grocery getter, utility vehicle. It is intended to replace a Toyota Camry which has been less than stellar. The Compass is a small, fun to drive mini SUV that is agile in town. It has decent power for me and I am quite comfortable at 6' in it. It was purchased completely based on sales price and my previous Chrysler vehicles ownership experience. I bought a 2016 4X4 6-speed auto Sport w/AC and minimal options. Price before TTL was $15,985. Please note the vehicle is 1 month old with 900 miles on it so things can and will change. Pros- Price, maneuverability, u-connect, steering feedback, transmission, handling, control layout, lower body protection, towing ability, cost of parts when needed, availability if neat accessories to add. Cons- Shifter, cramped back seat, front fender design, visibility, safety stars given, small gas tank, As a hard core DIY'er, parts pricing and availability are important. Parts are cheaper for this than other cars I have. It uses non synthetic oil and is very basic as far as service goes, helping to reduce ownership costs. The Compass has an autostick transaxle which means it paddle shifts with the shifter. This is my biggest complaint as I like to drive with my hand on the shifter. You can't lock this feature out. The Compass is a unibody and gains rigidity from all body panels being tied together. The front fenders have no top connection to the inner fender well that I can see. A small rear window combined with large piller posts limits visibility. (My 2nd biggest complaint) - a rear view camera is on the horizon for this shortcoming. Gas here is $1.95 right now and I filled the tank for $24! When was the last time anyone did that! 13 gallons will get you ~290 miles of mixed driving. I am not a lead foot. I anticipate mileage will get better as miles increase- its about 24 right now. Drive safe.

Small Gas Tank

I commute 45 minutes each way, have to fill up a lot - cheap to fill but the tank is so small, only about 13 gallons. Also, Jeep is not compatible with an Iphone so phones navigation and sounds don't work when connected. You can make calls with Uconnect but that's it. Have to turn bluetooth off to use phones navigation. No speak for text either.

I guess I got lucky?

Based on the other reviews you would think this vehicle was sub par. I actually love it ! Takes about $15-$20 to fill where I live (KY) great on the road when I'm traveling back and forth about 45minutes away. I can get drive as fast 80-90mph and not even realize it that's how smooth it rides. I've not experienced any of the below issues. I'm 25 so no kids. I have 6'2 guy friend that fit comfortably in my backseat as well. And I have enough cargo storage for my hair and makeup kit and lighting. Overall great vehicle !

Such a disappointment

It looks great from the outside and even the inside is not bad. My problem is while driving it... It "jerks/jolt" you while driving like its trying catch it breath. They when you are trying to gain ahead on another car it "revs" very hard when only trying to get to 50-60 mph. I mean the RPM gets near (5/6) before I reach 45 mph. Closing, It is more dependable than my old car, but I am highly disappointed. I wish I can give it back!

Worst car I've driven in years

This vehicle is ridiculously underpowered and poor on gas. The seats are not comfortable at all. No lumbar support and headrest is way too far back from your head. On normal highway driving the engine revs past 6000 rpm to try to keep up with 65 mph traffic.
