I had a 2008 Patriot -- sister to the Compass, built on same platform. I got 285,000 miles out of it.
My problem was the CVT transmission, it was replaced twice under warranty. I've since learned that the CVT should have its fluid changed every 50,000 miles. Don't wait for the recommended interval in the owners manual.
I had an electrical problem around 200,000 miles and debated putting out $1000 for a new wiring harness, but I did and I got another 100,000 miles out of it. Very few other problems, nothing serious.
I sold it to a friend and its still on the road.
My Wife drives a 2014 Patriot with a 5-spd manual and its been great. I replaced the brakes in October. Other than that no repairs at all. She's got 110,000 miles on it. Very solid vehicle, still feels tight.
