2019 Jeep Compass Trailhawk

Shortest review Ever

As I mentioned in my Highlander review, this was my first assigned vehicle of the day that was an unbelievable disappointment at start-up.

I was on my way to a friend’s house for a dinner date and I got this tiny Jeep for 3 people.  Just two miles later, I returned it.  The cabin was tiny, the engine was loud and weak, plus the transmission was jerky when downshifting AND upshifting.

To pour salt on the wounds, the base price of these is over $28,000.

Base price!

That type of cabin noise is only acceptable and expected for a car at half the price.

It’s only redeeming quality was the interior where I expect is the reason for the inflated price.  The seats were black with red piping and stitching accents that looked great.

I may try a similarly classed Cherokee in the future, but no way I’d rent a Compass again if I was going to have even 1 extra passenger at any time.  If I hear enough outcry, I may try it again if I’m going solo throughout the rental.
