    In my jeep compass 2019, the message “service engine ” is being displayed. It is now in the Mopar Service Station, Salem. for the past 45 days. Now only they tell that the self starter motor is found faulty and has to be replaced. Total kilometres the vehicle used/ run is only 11000kms.But its life is for 2 lakh miles. There’s no problem in starting the vehicle. Please guide

    I am having issues with my Transmission. There is a grinding sensation and unable to shift. The car has been down for over 4 months. I finally got it back from the Jeep dealership after paying close to $1000 for a coolant and engine flush. The coolant got into the engine as well as the car stalling due to transmission while arrive at the dealership prior to repair. Jeep wants over $6000 for transmission part not including repair on this 2021 Jeep Compass Latitude

  3. María Casado Hiraldo says:

    My car is turn off while I was driving on 20 miles. The coolant bottle broke, my car was 1 day in the dealer. and the cost on matenance is being ridiculous.

  4. María Casado Hiraldo says:

    My Compact Jeep is being in the shop twice. I Beng having problems with tires, gas, my car turn off on the road while I was driving on 20 miles, now the light ABS is on. I have called for an appointment to bring the card in, they have never told me the car have a recording on ABS.

  5. Althea King says:

    we have had our Jeep in for repairs twice now and still having problems with the shifting you have to press it to the floor as well when you take off or you will be RAN OVER

  6. Kathy says:

    My 2019 Compass has literally just shut off showing on the tach that coolant was too hot, and them within seconds pops back on. No warning, doesn’t matter the speed, it just goes kaput with a coolant warning and the needle goes back down just as sudden as if nothing has happened, however, I have almost been rear ended and head on collisions many times for not being able to move.

  7. Savannah Hutson says:

    I have a 2022 Jeep Compass. My starter went out after a year of having the car. It was at about 7000 miles. Now part of the trim is coming loose from the doors and back of the car. Also on this car the chrome is starting to rust

  8. Danielle Partlow says:

    I just purchased a 2021 jeep Compass today September 13 2023. I read all the complaints. Should I return this vehicle tomorrow.

  9. James Michaels says:

    My Wife is having problems with her 2021 compass. Is started when she was involved in a minor front end accident. They had to replace the windshield and they werent able to calibrate some of the sensors that are in the front of the vehicle. Now its stalling and the battery is going dead. Golling Chrysler jeep in bloomfield, Mi. are not standing by their original work. They have had her care for almost a week and not one word about it. In the meantime, were renting vehicles so that she can get to work.

  11. Christopher Philbrick says:

    Radio screen no longer works , screen controls access to heat / ac.. back up Camera , heated seats / steering wheel etc etc..
    Having constant problems with stabilizer links / bushings & sway bar connections… loud sounds from under the car , middle front end area…
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    • jose says:

      if the screen no longer works but you still listening to music…you might get ah screen replacement somewhere…my radio had the same and i got the screen and replace it….problem solve

    • Amanda says:

      My 19 does the same thing, radio screen shuts off turns back on- randomly. I notice that this happens on extended drives, and when I’m adjusting the volume or station from the button on the rear of the steering wheel. Also having problems with a knocking sound- sway bar links?- gas usage is absurd. I’d be better off driving a full size pick up with as my fuel it uses.

  12. Qui says:

    My auto start battery has been changed twice. The screen has blinks in and out. My auto start light continue to blink off and on. The car will literally go into emergency break mode and stop while I’m sitting at a stop sign and I have to put the car in park, cut it off and start it back up. All while sitting at a stop sign. This is ridiculous at this point.
