Interesting! The Caliber got 5 front and 5 side. I wonder why that was? I wouldn't think that the front end sheet metal would make that much of a difference. Anyway, 4 star front and 5 star side is still better than anything else I've ever had. Thanks for finding that, I had been looking for it too.

Glad to be of assistance! (for once!). I actually found a post on the http://www.myjeepcompass.com/ website. Someone else on this site had recommended it. I haven't checked that site out in depth but when I saw the post on safety ratings I was immediately interested.

The post that I read had a similar comment/question in regard to the Caliber's 5 star rating in comparison to the 4 star rating of the Compass. No one has given a definative answer...and (from the litte I saw) the myjeepcompass forum has less chatter, but I could be wrong.

Any inclement weather in your area (of late)? If so, how is the Compass doing?

I haven't seen any snow...but I have been in a handful of downpours and I feel VERY SAFE and in control - which is a great change from when I drove my old Ford Focus.

Mistyfate,
Weather has been typical October, cold, windy and showers. The other morning it was down to 26 degrees but no ice, and at the same time I was glad that I wasn't in Colorado where they had two feet of snow at the Springs (used to live there, too).

Still a comfort to drive, LOVE THOSE HEATED SEATS!!!! It's a really relaxed drive, not anything like the old Dodge. I do feel secure. High beams on the lights are GREAT for seeing deer eyes at a resonable distance in the early morning hours. At times I feel that I'm not "worthy", I have nothing to complain about!
