Overview & Reviews
The 2015 Compass loses its combination cargo light/flashlight, and the High Altitude package downgrades to 17-inch wheels. In happier news, navigation is newly available on the midgrade Latitude trim, and the Altitude and High Altitude can now be had with all-wheel drive.

Don't listen to the critics! - 2015 Jeep Compass
By brian228 - March 27 - 7:13 pm
We have had our 2015 Compass High Altitude for 6 months and are very pleased with it. First of all it was a great value-$25,599.00 out the door. This model includes leather and moonroof. We find the ride to be compliant and composed. It is surprisingly quiet and when going 65-70 on interstates it's all good. A couple of minor complaints- first, there is no auto lamp feature so have to remember to turn on headlights when it starts to get dark. Also the six-speed transmission sometimes delays shifting into 6th gear longer than seems necessary. Overall we are very satisfied so far. We live on a rural gravel road and it has been great in the mud and also in snowy slippery conditions.
Perfect for me, and what a deal! - 2015 Jeep Compass

I can't believe how nice this Compass is -- at least for me. I was expecting cheap and thrashy, and instead it's smooth, quiet and very composed. Soaks up bumps. Firm, supportive seats. Interior is not nearly as cheap as some of the reviews would lead you to think. I mean, lighted cupholders, cruise control and Jeep floormats on a car I paid $13K for brand new! The plastics are soft enough in most places, a decent quality vibe.
My no good car - 2015 Jeep Compass
By Elenanca - December 28 - 6:14 pm
I leased the car in 2014 . After driving it for a while I started to be very disappointed by most of features of the car It is like an old car once you press the gas . It makes the noise of a tired grandpa and the noise is loud ! . Poor acceleratin , lack of space for the driver and bad adjustment of driving seat . No real storage at all in the car . The door side pockets are for the birds and the back of the seats have no pockets . There is just a minimal storage box in between the chairs . You can store few things . The trunk has no dividers for anything so your goods goes from right to left and all other directions . Once you get home you repack everything and please don't buy eggs ! !
