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.

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.

Steering Fluid Leaks From Detached Return Hose

The power steering low pressure return hose may leak from a mis-installed clamp. Dealers will inspect the clamp and adjust it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Stall and/or Failure

522 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the engine may have abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings.

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.
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 I am worried bbut the car has power mmeanning the clucth is working and thereis no smell
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.
