Just pulled a new 2007 Jeep Compass off the lot today. Traded in my 1998 Cherokee that has over 166,000 miles & needs $2,000 in repairs for it. Dividing the payments for the new one by the cost of repairs for the old one it wasn't a hard decision to make considering it is 5 months worth.
The Compass is considered a cross over vehicle. It will fit mine my wife's & my dogs needs for a vehicle. We are trying a lease vs. a purchase.
