Hello,

Im new to the jeep world, just purchased a 2008 jeep compass "rallye edition sport" in black on 10/1/07 it has about 1600 miles on it so far

I used to own a 2003 mazda protege 5 turbo, but traded her in and sold the kit because i was unable to maintain emissions *damn illinois*

all in all i like the car, not to impressed with the gas milage 285 to the tank was not something i expected from a 2.4l I4 but its got decent pick up and in a few months would like to add a CAI and maybe a nice quiet catback exhaust

well glad to join the community

Glad to hear you joined us! I'm kind of an adoption myself, but they let me hang out. Gas mileage will pick up, I get over 300 a tank. Is yours 2x4 or 4x4? That could play into it and of course transmission type as well. I average 29-30+ MPG on my Caliber R/T FWD w/ CVT.

Do they make CAI and CB exhausts this compact SUV yet?
