  • What happens when you "ride" your Jeep's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Jeep? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is.

Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Compass is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
