Very First 2007 Jeep Compass North Edition

Hello All,

Just bought my very first Jeep Compass North Edition! I am finding the suspension really really tight in it. My DH seems to think that it shouldn't be that tight, now keep in mind we bought it three weeks ago and it only had 63000 KM on it, I am wondering if anyone else thinks that it will loosen or is that just the way they are? Any insight would be greatly appreciated

Tracy

The Compasses I have rode in all had very tight, stiff suspensions compared to past vehicles I've owned. It is a Jeep, after all, not a Cadillac.

If by 'tight' you mean quick and sensitive yes they are. The wife has always had Grand Cherokees and while she loves the turning radius in all of them she finds my Compass tighter than her GC's. Although not a sports car it's feels more so than the bigger Jeeps.

Thanks everyone, I have never had a vehicle where I can hear the suspension squeak as I climb over something slowly. In this case we were camping, entering our site and I was moving slowly, I could hear the suspension sort of squeak, however I know it is new because we couldn't pick up the Jeep until it had been replaced.
I for one am LOVING IT!!
