Jeep Compass: It's Check Up Time

August 08, 2007

I took the Jeep Compass into the local service center for its' check-up yesterday. Apart from taking over a week to get the appointment everything went pretty smoothly. After the joy I experienced from the quick drop-off with a 5 minute turnaround the courtesy shuttle took over 45 minutes to arrive back at the service center from its' most recent outing which was a bit frustrating, but can be chalked up to getting them at the wrong timing in the shuttle cycle.

Went back to pick up my car about 6 hours later, and was informed that they think they've gotten to the bottom of the rear reverse light problems- a new bulb. I explained to the technician that I'd been in twice before for this same complain and they've checked the bulb, but he insisted that now the problems are fixed. I reversed out with both lights shining brightly but we'll see how long that lasts!

Overall, it was painless. I even save about $20.00 with the Jeep servicing coupons I had received in the mail. In addition to the pesky light, the service included oil and filter change, tire rotation, air filter service, and a servicing of the PCV system. The total cost was a cool $74.89. Ah, feeling fresh again!
