The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Jeep Compass tries to take the brand to a new on-road audience, but falls short of pleasing drivers who never hit the trails. The 2008 Honda CR-V doesn't have hip style or performance on tap, but it has the security, utility, and frugality that many sensible moms want.
