Possibly buying a compass tomorrow. Help?!

Its a 2007 4WD compass sport. What should I look for when test driving it and what questions should I ask the dealer? I've read so many mixed reviews on the compasses but like the idea of a smaller jeep.

I owned an 07 2wd compass and got rid of it. Did not have any mechanical problems, just not for me. If I had it to do again I would have picked up a sound XJ.....but each to their own!

They are pretty nice. The patriot has more cargo space though

+1 for the Patriot... It's very nice.

But to answer your question, how many miles are on it? How well was it maintained? Any accidents? Any major mechanical defects in the past? Etc

I'm going to test drive it tomorrow. 50k miles, one small frontal accident in 07, I'm kind of worried about that. And I think it was maintained well, 2 owners, I spoke to the last one who said he had no problems and had no idea it was ever wrecked. I like the patriots a lot and would be willing to get one, just haven't come across many and like the gas mileage of the compass.

I'd try and have the dealer dig up what was repaired if that record was available. If it's what you're in to then make an offer, but I'd factor the accident into my offer. Accidents affect resale value, so don't forget that.
