The Jeep Compass may be a great first car choice for you, but this decision depends on what you’re looking for in a first car. Here’s a list of the benefits and drawbacks of driving the Jeep Compass.
- Great infotainment
- Comfortable and smooth steering
- Ample passenger room
- Low base price
- Lacks in horsepower
- Poor gas mileage
- Lacking standard safety features
- Needs more cargo space
If you’re looking for a comfortable and affordable SUV, the compass is a great option. Keep in mind that its safety features are lacking, which is an important aspect of purchasing your first car.
