I will miss the 340HP speed of my Audi S4, but I'm glad to be back in a jeep. It also gets better gas mileage and there is more room for the baby and dogs.

Traded in a Toyota Prius... worst mistake ever (the trade, not the purchase of the prius)

Hated letting the '02 C5 Coupe go, but I always promise the wife to sell them at 35K miles. My buddy, the Chrysler/Jeep dealer, gives me special considerations.
Did the same thing for my '93 Grand. This only makes sense on new models that are in demand.

I traded in a '02 Lincoln LS V8.... Upon my trade in i was immediately happy to see my 17mpg's go to 22 mpg's in the city and now with a new flomaster exhaust I'm getting even more mpg's.. Oh yeah, and the 4x4 does help out a ton in the country and during the snow season!

My trade in was a 98 VW New Beetle with 122000 miles. It was hard to say Good Bye but my new Compass makes up for everything and I enjoy my 1 hour commute to work A LOT!!!

I traded in an 05 Toyota Matrix for my Compass. Couldn't resist the low price and the extra room the Compass offered with no real compromise on the MPG compared to the Matrix.

New 09 Compass Owner

Just wanted to pop in and say Hi!

I am trading in my 2004 Chevy Aveo for a new 2009 Jeep Compass Limited 4x4 next week when it arrives from factory! So excited! I have read alot of good feedback on the compass on this site and wanted to thank everyone for their posts as it made it easy for me to make my decision.

Thanks again and looking forward to being a new member of the Jeep community!
