2008 Jeep Compass Problems

Abnormal Noise or Damage to AC Compressor

A rattle type noise may be noted from the AC compressor or the compressor could be damaged due to "slugging" of the refrigerant. The compressor may require replacement to correct this concern. If the compressor is replaced an updated condenser may also be required.

Water Leaks From the Front and/or Rear Roof Area

Water leaks may be noted from the front and/or rear roof area. Our technicians recommend to inspect the roof ditch and sunroof - Check all grommets and plugs, reseal roof seams, and replace the sunroof drain tubes if necessary.

Engine Will not Start Due to Wireless Control Module Fault

A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.

2008 Jeep Compass Reviews

The heat in my vehicle won't work unless it is on the highest setting, which makes my Drive noisy and I'm afraid I won't hear things like an ambulance or police.
Purchased my Compass new in 2008, currently 141,000 miles. Have had issues with right and left control arms. Purchased additonal warrentee that covers everyting with $100 deductable. Love the car, will buy another after I get 200k out of her.
We have had our 4x4 2008 for four years. It has been a great SUV. Lots of power and does great in the snow. It has the bigger engine. While it is not a problem is the rear brakes make scraping noise when wet.We are retired and make long trips and the Compass is perfect for us. I would buy another one.
