2008 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I thought i loved the jeep compass, until i came to an incline, the truck goes backward instead of forward. Has anyone else had this problem with the 08 COMPASS? Other than the roll back, it seems to be a great little car. I reported the problem to Chrysler's headquarter, they had the car picked up about 20 minutes after i called.I am waiting to hear from them.

Best Features

It is roomy,very cute, and the paint job is great with the sparkles in it.

Worst Features

It has a blind side, could redesign to have a better side view.

I've got the identical problem. I've been staying in PA and have started driving with two feet again in order to keep the car from drifting backwards on hills. Not much fun at all.
