I don’t know how so many crazy, all of the sudden break downs can happen to one vehicle. An alternator the completely shuts down. At his and a that always with zero warning. This is the most dangerous vehicle I have owned and I did own a pinto and a Germlin. Worst car ever!!! Yes I did maintain the vehicle with regular up keep. Purchased in July of 2012 with 45,000 miles on it for $ 12,900.
2007 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
it is a great car but problematic. It must be babied. my 4wd is stuck in 4wd. I did some digging into computer operations and have fpund a phrase "interrupts" which means any part of a software loop(or circuit) will faulter everything.
This Jeep is horrible! i originally wanted a jeep wrangler but settled for the compass because i read it had good mpg, bought used with only 15k couple months in and had front end issues, have replaced front rotors,front and rear brakes, new tires .. has had multiple alignments, three months ago needed new ETC system ! I'm at 87k and now the alternator gave out today! something rattles when i hit any bump and slips even with a little bit of rain or snow on ground ,
