2012 Jeep Compass Problems

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.

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.

2012 Jeep Compass Recalls

The Airbags May not Deploy As Expected

The airbag system contains various components which deploy to help protect vehicle occupants if a crash occurs. These vehicles are being recalled because the seatbelt pre-tensioners and/or side airbags may be slow to deploy when needed. Delayed deployment will increase the risk of personal injury. Dealers will update the airbag system software to correct this concern.

The Engine May Stall Unexpectedly

On these vehicles, the fuel tank is divided into two sections. A system using a transfer tube is used to move fuel from the secondary side to the primary side where the fuel pump is located. This transfer tube may have been improperly manufactured causing the transfer of fuel to be interrupted. If this condition causes the primary side of the fuel tank to run dry the engine will stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel tank transfer tube in affected vehicles to correct this concern.

Penitential Fuel Leak from Fuel Tank Roll-Over Valve

Some vehicles may have been assembled with a fuel tank assembly containing a damaged roll-over valve. In the event of an impact or roll-over type crash, fuel leakage could occur, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is M11.

2012 Jeep Compass Reviews

I've had my Compass for 8 months. I absolutely love it. If I could change anything, it would be the vents of how the A.C. is set up. It doesn't blow as directly on me as I'd like it to. And, it doesn't have immediate zero to zoom power.
