So, how have these cars been doing lately?

Our reliability stats for the Compass now include owner experiences through March 31, 2015. (Others are nearly a year behind.)

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year ("low" is best):

2014 Compass: 8, low, small sample size
2011 Compass: 26, low, small sample size
2010 Compass: 76, high, small sample size
2009 Compass: 87, high, small sample size
2008 Compass: 85, moderate
2007 Compass: 83, moderate, small sample size

Plus, the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2008 Compass: 51, 4

No stat for a model year? Then we very much need more participants for it. Same for those with small sample size notes. Next updates in August and November.

Our reliability stats for the Compass now cover the year ending June 30, 2015. (Others are over a year behind, and so report how these cars were doing when a year younger.)

Repair trips per 100 cars:

2014 Compass: 23, low, small sample size
2011 Compass: 33, low, small sample size
2010 Compass: 64, moderate, small sample size
2009 Compass: 89, high, small sample size
2008 Compass: 79, moderate
2007 Compass: 83, moderate, small sample size

We have two additional statistics, "Nada-odds" and "Lemon-odds", to indicate the percentage of cars with no repairs in the past year and those that required 3+ trips to the repair shop:

2008 Compass: 48, 4

If a model year isn't listed, or its sample size is small, then we especially need more owners involved.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Compass to include owner experiences through September 30, 2015.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 Compass: 28, low, small sample size
2011 Compass: 25, low, small sample size
2010 Compass: 48, moderate, very small sample size
2009 Compass: 72, moderate, very small sample size
2008 Compass: 57, moderate
2007 Compass: 71, moderate, small sample size

We'll have further updates in February and in May. Additional participants are needed to provide precise stats for all model years.

I have probably owned 40 or more vehicles. I have driven Mostly Chrysler products since my 1934 plymouth. Have had other brands
occasionally ,ie Hudson, Nash, chevy, olds. buick Fords etc.and a few foreign cars, ie Audi and Mercedes but i always come back to Chrysler products.
Walter P chrysler had a reputation for great engineering and had the most firsts and innovations. The drive trains hold up. Of the top 10 usa Lemons listed none were chrysler products . Fords GMC and AMC made the list.
Every time I have a Ford I say never again but then I end up with one.
I even now have a ford pickup with a blown spark plug. Poor Engineering.
I currently own 6 or 8 vehicles and mostly have worked on my own repairs.
Anyone who has to work on all makes of cars shouldn't like working on fords.

We've updated our reliability stats for the Compass and Patriot to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2014 Compass: 41, moderate, small sample size
2011 Compass: 27, low, small sample size
2010 Compass: 52, moderate, very small sample size
2009 Compass: 73, moderate, small sample size
2008 Compass: 50, low
2007 Compass: 72, moderate, small sample size

No stat, or a small sample size? Then we especially need more owners involved for that model year.
