Does not age gracefully...
By burauhaus on


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.

Best Features

heated seats warm quickly, handles nicely in snow/icy conditions, decent gas mileage.

Worst Features

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.
