2008 Jeep Compass Problems

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.

Abnormal Noise From HVAC Blower Motor

An abnormal noise may be noted from the HVAC blower motor. This can be caused by debris from the glove box entering the blower motor via the recirculation door. A screen is now available which can be installed over the recirculation air inlet to keep debris out of the blower motor.

Leaking Front Strut and/or "Rough" Handling

A fluid leak may be noted from the front struts and/or the vehicle may handle "rough" Our technicians tell us that replacing the leaking struts and installing a revised jounce bumper and dust shield should correct these concerns.

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.
