Jeep are pretty confident about their products right now with a new deal for customers buying their vehicles.

Should you go and get a new Jeep you will get a five year 75,000 mile warranty, three years servicing and five year roadside assistance all for free.

Known as the 5-3-5 is a bold new initiative that offers even greater peace of mind for customers considering buying one of their award-winning SUVs.

The 5-3-5 campaign is all part of a major push to further underline the Jeep brand’s confidence in the quality of its vehicle line-up, and to offer even greater value and peace of mind to new customers buying a Jeep vehicle for the first time.

The offer applies to all models in the current Jeep line-up – Wrangler, Renegade, Compass, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, and will run until further notice.

“There has never been a better time to buy a new Jeep vehicle,” said Andrew Tracey, country manager of Jeep UK.

“I am delighted to announce this new deal which makes an already good Jeep range even more appealing.

“This offers a five-year manufacturer’s warranty which gives customers peace of mind.”

I’ve just been driving the Compass Jeep, which is hoping to get a leg-up in the small SUV class, and its recent relaunch is available with a 1.6-litre or 2.0-litre diesel engine and a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol.

Prices vary from £23,000 to £37,000 depending on which model you have. A nine-speed automatic gearbox is available with the 2.0-litre diesel where there is four-wheel drive.

I drove the 1.6 diesel and found it to be a car I enjoyed the more I was behind the wheel. It was capable both on and off road, pretty comfortable and with around 65 miles to the gallon the fuel stakes are certainly not to be sneezed at.

Acceleration isn’t bad with 11 seconds for 0-62mph and top speed is 115mph. It weighs in at just under a tonne and a half and it can tow a one tonne caravan or trailer with no problems.

It is a pretty smooth ride with just a little bit of body roll but as I said the more you drive it the more you get used to it.

Visibility is excellent with plenty of room for five people and there’s a reasonable boot which gives you more than 400 litres of space.

In terms of kit, the entry-level Compass Sport has a 5.0in touchscreen as standard, along with Jeep’s latest UConnect system.

The touchscreen is good, but not quite as good as the best in class. Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk models get a larger 8.4in screen, which incorporates Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring as standard.

There is a 3.5in driver’s display or a configurable, full-colour 7.0in one that shows information such as sat-nav directions and vehicle settings, depending on specification.

Plenty of safety features include six airbags, forward collision warning and lane departure warning, while blindspot monitoring and rear cross-path detection are included from Limited trim upwards.

Standard warranty and roadside assistance for three years plus an additional two years’ warranty and roadside assistance valid until the expiry of five years from the date of first registration or the vehicle has travelled 75,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

Free servicing covers the costs of parts, lubricants and labour required as part of the manufacturer’s scheduled servicing until the expiry of three years or the vehicle has had its first three scheduled services, whichever occurs first. Five year warranty and roadside assistance and three year free servicing is available in conjunction with retail sales only (excluding PCH) until further notice.

Jeeps have been around since the Second World War and they still touch the hearts of motorists 70 years even 70 years later.
