Jeep Compass Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

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.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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.

Our technicians tell us that various dirveability and Check Engine Light issues can be corrected by updating the powertrain control module (PCM) software.

Front wheel drive vehicles may develop a fuel gauge fluctuation issue. Our technicians tell us that replacing the fuel sending unit, clocking the fuel module, and installing a fuel jumper hose may be required to correct this concern.

The accelerator pedal bearing pockets may be oversized. As a result, the pivot bushings may become dialoged, causing the accelerator to bind or stick. If the accelerator were to stick, the "smart" braking system will overcome the stuck accelerator under certain conditions. Dealers will replace the affected accelerator pedals to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on June 29, 2010. The Chrysler recall number is K11.

Engine, April 3, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

ya I am driving jeep compass 2012 model i have experice this thing of abbnomal noise whenn you press or release clutch I donnt know

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.

I have got a jeep compass 2011. it is awful, the garage has had the car so many times airbag issues, gearshift issues, gone it for a service did not order the correct fuel filter twice. and now the waterpump has gone it has only done 39K. I wish the landrover garage had been open or audi. this is from derby uk the only jeep i would buy now is a 1940 jeep they work

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.
