The owner of a new 2013 Jeep Compass L4x4
Hello everyone! I am the owner of a new 2013 Jeep Compass Latitude 4x4. Do not know how much posting I'll do but I wanted to join the community, see what there is to learn about the vehicle, and participate when I can.
I have only had the vehicle for a day now, but I really like it. Many of the reviews online seem to give the compass some very low scores (around 6/10) for example. Mainly due to the small cargo space and the loud engine. I for one enjoy having the 4x4, a billowing engine and a vehicle that isn't common to everyone in the area.
The 4x4 is nice specially in the snowy north where I live.
May I ask a few questions to help me on my search for information:
- The warranty is for 36 months, what can I expect to go wrong in those 36 months or what is common to break that I need to watch out for?
- I have the basic radio system and was looking at crutchfield for entry-level dvd player. I found a Jensen one that will require a special cable to keep steering wheel commands. What does everyone think of the conversion to a 3rd party system and how easy is it to install?
- When I was coming home from the dealer the other day you could see what looked like smoke coming from the engine compartment is this common for new vehicles? Sort of like buring off the oil, etc.
