Looking at buying a 2007 Jeep Compass Sport

Good Evening all. I am looking for some good old buying advice. I am looking at buying (well my sister would be) a 2007 Jeep Compass Sport. It is for sale here locally, in Bloomington, IL. I have not had the oppertunity to look at the Jeep yet and was wondering what I should look for, if there are any known defects, common flaws, parts that prematurely wear out, and anything else in general I should keep an eye out for.

Some details on the Jeep:
2007 Jeep Compass Sport
96,200 miles
Stone White
Grey Cloth interior
5 Speed CVT
2.4L I4
Power Windows/Doors/Locks (auto power locks)
Heated Front Steats
AM/FM/6 Disc Changer
Cruise Control
Traction/Stability Control

I am more of a ZJ guy, I have a 1994 Limited, so my knowledge when it comes to the compass is well, limited.

Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Front ball joints are a problem, and need to be looked at. and as always have it checked out by a mechanic you trust before buying.

Just thought I'd throw in an update...
My sister purchased the Compass, 96,200 Miles, Cleanest used car I have ever seen, not a spot of rust, garage kept and every service record for the Jeep. It was a one owner (elderly couple). She is extremely happy and I'll admit, I'm a bit jealous lol.
