True CrazleKC, if the durability was equal to the Jeep Blood Line, then the Compass would have an good reputation. However, its doesn't and sadly JEEP makes no attempt to correct the engineering issues in the affected years. I have done some hunting on the 2011 but see no firm info on any improvements to the early wear out and failing components. I know that up to 2010 its the same and the parts # are the same for control arms and tie rods etc. 2011 it too new to show in parts suppliers and they're under OEM warranty as well. Time will tell though as it has for me. Its disturbing that the vibration the CVT generates is not correctable and widely know issues are labels as normal by Chrysler engineering. I have been told this on three occasions really hate that experience in this years vehicle.
However there is no question that driving a 4x4 w/ESP, ABS and 4 doors is a big step forward in safety.
