Hi all.... I am new to this forum. Well, I own a 2018 Jeep Compass Limited Diesel FWD. I live in India, so my vehicle is Right Hand Drive.

Well, I am a sea-going Captain by profession. Main hobby is photography and love to drive.

Sure I love my Jeep and I like the site too. Infact, I came across the site while breaking my head over how to find the interior fuse box for hardwiring a dash cam. And bingo! I got the lead
.... Infact a detailed, photographic step-by-step tutorial !!

Have bookmarked the page.... Expecting to get hold of the dual dash cam in 2 or 3 days along with the necessary tools and multimeter for the task.

Will update how the task went.

Hello all...bought a new leftover 2018 Compass Trailhawk last month in laser blue (I sometimes wonder if it's too bright but people seem to like it). Coming from a sports car, it's taking some getting used to, particularly the massive difference in horsepower and torque, and strange shifting patterns, but I do enjoy sitting up higher and having space to carry stuff.

Welcome, riggie33! Glad you found us.

I know what you mean about the color. Besides styling, color is another thing that's lacking in the contemporary automotive scene.

Back in '69 my Dad bought a "Bright Blue" Dodge Coronet that was roughly equivalent to the "Laser Blue" we have today. He was showing it to a friend who remarked, "No choice in the color, huh?" Actually my Dad ordered that color! We had a lot more choice of colors, interior and exterior, in those days. Today we have a variety of blacks, grays, or whites and little else. Even if other colors are offered in the literature or website, try finding one. Maybe you can start a trend.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy your Compass.

Friendly word of advice: some Compasses really use oil so keep an eye on your dipstick. That may be why a 2018 found its way onto a used car lot so quickly. It took my 2018 Compass 30,000 miles to improve to 3,000/quart. My 2019 Compass seems better than that already, but its a little early to tell. I've used 1/2 quart in 2000 miles and I expect a new engine to use some at first.

Welcome, eweisner! Glad you found us. Between your mods and your wish list, your Compass won't even be recognized by its mother!

Hi, I recently purchased a 2019 Jeep Compass Latitude 4x4 with the "Cold Weather Group", "Popular Equipment Group", and 9ĖSpeed AutoStick Automatic Transmission.

It's my first Jeep and first 4x4 and I'm really liking it so far. I have to deal with northern Vermont winters and am looking forward to seeing what AWD is all about since I've never had much problem with traveling in winter with a front wheel drive vehicle.

I have been reading this forum for the past month so I am aware of some of the issues others are experiencing, so I have been keeping a close eye on the oil level (so far so good at just over 1000 miles).

Welcome georgef! Glad to have you on the site.

You know about checking the oil. My 2019 seems to be doing better than my dear departed 2018 did, but like you I'm keeping an eye on it.

If you got along well in snow with FWD, you should do just as well with AWD.

Living in Vermont you know this too, so please don't think I'm patronizing you. However this is a good chance to offer a word of caution to whoever else might be reading this: under most conditions AWD offers no benefit! You have no more rubber on the road with AWD than you did with FWD or RWD, so don't think that because you have AWD you have "more control." When driving in snow, a driver can't drive any faster, corner any better, or stop any quicker with AWD. In every event you are a the mercy of your tires, so if you live in snow country as we do, then good dedicated snow tires are what you need. While not magic good snow tires will offer much better traction in snow and ice. AWD is only useful for starting up on an incline or going through deep snow.

FYI, the OEM Firestone Destinations are good highway tires and as LRR tires they deliver good fuel economy as advertised; however, they are only mediocre in snow. Spend the money up front -- think of it as extending the life of your summer tires (and possibly the life of your Compass).

Thanks, twice I have tried to post a more detailed reply but I got a message about the message being "Moderated".

Let's see if this one makes it through.

Around here many AWD vehicle drivers try anyhow (except Subaru drivers, they slow down to 25 mph when the first snowflake flies)

I do run winter tires, I prefer to have them mounted on dedicated wheels, it makes the changeover much easier. I just need to find the right wheels, tires, and sensors.
