Soon to be new Jeep owner

I've been waiting almost two years to buy a new Patriot! Now, the time is almost here! We're just waiting for our house re-fi to close. Hopefully, we'll hear on that this week.

Looking at a FWD Latitude in Blue or Copperhead. The copper would be my preference. Also thinking seriously about buying a manual, which I haven't driven in some time, but I've gotten the bug for a manual again since I've been driving my Civic. Bought an EX-L which is not available with a manual, but I wish it had one. Thus, the bug. I've read good things about the Jeep manual tranny. However, finding one here in the state of Michigan has been a bit of a task (just to try it to see if I will indeed like it). Finding one with the EQ I want on it has been even harder. Will have to drive up to Gaylord or over to Ionia or Brighton just to try it.

Anyway, I'm hoping we hear good news soon with a quick closing date, then I can go get serious with the dealer.

I hear ya. Waiting on my new Compass Limited 4X4. With the colors and options I wanted I snagged the last one in western Canada. Manual was hard to track down but I got one.

How do you like your Compass?

Looking at potentially buying a Compass. I liked the way it drove, but read some not so great reviews online. How do you like yours?

Here's my take on it. I've had no regrets, the main features I wanted were a comfortable ride, good towing capacity, and inexpensive cost of ownership. Good luck with your purchase!

Those reviews are biased towards the Patriots, go read those reviews and look at the difference just because they 'look' more Jeep. The drive-trains are all the same.
