OK - I'll bite. I haven't towed one but I do know something about the Jeep products.

Are we talking 2WD (FWD) or 4WD? Manual or Automatic? Do you want to flat tow or use a dolly?

If you want to flat tow it, then it must be a manual transmission and left in Neutral to tow. 2WD or 4WD OK.

If towed on a dolly then it cannot be 4WD. Any trans OK.

The Compass (and sister Patriot) are really more of a car chassis than traditional Jeep chassis.

The Compass Sport is 2 wheel drive with manual trans. Pretty much bottom of the line with equipment. I am trying to find folks that have had experience with them. What is the platform that this is built on?
