a 98 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4 for the Compass 4x4.
I loved the rodeo-It was a tank. The final straw was a blown headgasket at 160k miles.

cel0129,
They are Keystone wheels from Wheels & Caps.com. They advertise them as the original supplier to Jeep ! I can tell you first hand that they have the same casting #'s. Oh well, at least they are not made in china..............There is another post by me on this forum on the specifics.

Actually, mine wasn't awful...I traded in my Grand Cherokee. Two reasons mainly, I drive so much I was close to 200K, and I drive so much the fuel was killing me. I love my Patriot's mileage and many other things, but I loved my GC for a lot of reasons also.

Edited to add: I also have to mention that my Patriot (With GY Forterra Tripletreds on it) chows through the snow better than my GC ever did.

2001 Ford Focus...it was a good little car...but I hated driving in the snow and bad weather (heavy rain) with it. I feel much safer and in control with the Compass.

You'll love it in the snow. I drove my Patriot (they're basically the same) through our first snow of the season, and LOVED it! It just plows through-it's awesome. I feel very secure in mine too. When we test drove it, I told the salesman that it "drove big" for lack of a better adjective. It really does. At highway speeds it feels more stable than the '05 X-terra I traded for it.

Congrats on the Compass

Misty is one of our original crew. We had a good laugh last year when we were talking about how we just finished cleaning out the drive ways and then the snow plows came along and left a big pile down at the bottom. We both just drove threw them . Within about 2 or 3 weeks they released a Jeep commercial showing the same solution!

Misty's sister liked it enough that she went out a bought a Patriot. Now there's an MK family! Pictures are in the Patriot Owners thread.
