I am up in Canada, but I think the policy is the same. I have 2011 Compass and I noticed that the 2012's had additional features/tunings that were computer based.
I don't think they will contact you unless its some sort of safety issue.
I went to my dealer with minor "complaints" that were carefully worded to sound just like the updates that were in the 2012. They checked and found 2 updates and applied them.
For me personally, those updates really helped the performance of the Jeep Compass.
Since you have an 2012, I'm not sure there any new updates, you can ask though. Worst they can say is no.....
