2007 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
We bought this car used 07/2013, less than 85,000 mi, no warrantee offered.
Within 2 months, we had to replace the trans control modulator; less than 30 days later,
alternator was replaced also.
None of this was covered by the dealership as we were told this was "normal wear and tear".
Before the holidays our Jeep was backed into, resulting in some body damage & a thumping sound in the LF wheel (impact) area.
Service says we now need to replace the RF wheel bearing AND the transmission, citing normal wear & tear, not from incident.
Looking into lemon law for our state... this is RIDICULOUS! Would not buy this car again.
heated seats warm quickly, handles nicely in snow/icy conditions, decent gas mileage.
DISLIKE: transmission is an "all or nothing" fix,
the constant breakdowns, overall quality of vehicle and its construction, standard tires should be more rugged (off-road ready), clearance between front/rear seats is minimal.
This 2007 Jeep Compass is the worst vehicle to drive.
It is not reliable; there is always something wrong with it.
I had my Transmission Oil Temp light come on within a week of purchasing the vehicle.
Roughly 2 weeks later, it came on again and now 8 months later it has come on yet again.
The RPM's go up and the speed goes down within 1-3 minutes after the light comes on; makes you pull over on the road side for the vehicle to cool down.
Definitely not worth anyone's time.
Not happy at all.
On top of it, they say it is something different every time I take it in to get fixed.I have also had the control arm and sway bar and bushings replaced in the front at 66552 miles.
add more room in cargo.
Definitely can't pack up an infant and 2 adults to go on vacation in this vehicle.
Also a carseat does not fit well.
The driver and passenger in the front seat do not sit comfortably.
2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my Jeep Compass brand new in 2007.
I have never bought a brand new vehicle.
I have paid off my vehicle and it still runs wonderful.
I had to have the alternator replaced Jan 2012.
It is still going strong with over 95,000 miles on it!
I will probably drive this vehicle until it falls apart!
I love the ride, the comfort and most importantly the reliability!
