Another new member from Canada!

I'm register on this forum until 2010 to get some basics information when my mom bought a brand new Jeep Compass!

But I finally bought back her 2010 Jeep Compass North 4X4 CVT a few weeks ago. After 32 month of ownership she decided to make the move to a brand new 2013 Toyota RAV4 XLE! In fact I can't blame her honestly because the Toyota is way more reliable and fuel economic than the Jeep. My dad's passed away two years ago so I take care of getting her Jeep fixed at the dealership when necessary and honestly I had to bright it back few times for some moderately serious issues like :

- Leaking front axle gaskets BOTH sides (two different visits)
- Loose ball-joint replaced
- Suspension rattle (few loose component replaced)
- Severe driver's door rattle (loose lock latch)
- Passenger power window issue (stop working)
- and few other minor issues...

But for the moment everything seem to work fine except I feel like a little "play" in the steering wheel (like a loose in the connections between steering and wheels) and I don't think it's normal. Otherwise the Jeep is mint, it was red and there's almost not a scratch on it!

But for the price I pay for (consider it's almost a gift) I can't refuse, no matter of the actual reliability because I really want a 4x4! But maybe in a few month I'll have the JEEP logo tattooed on my heart! Who knows...

Otherwise in the everyday life I live in Quebec, I'm 31, have 2 children (5 & 2yo) & a wife (haha) and I'm an IT manager for a large company! I also have a pretty good skill in mechanics so I'm doing all my maintenance and basic repairs myself. Because of my job and studies I also have a pretty high skill in mobile audio, remote start, alarm, etc. I've done several small to large mobile audio installation for friends and coworkers, I also do home theaters installation, satellite TV, etc.

So that's it! Have a good day and nice to meet you guys (and girlz, LOL)!

They're not!!! I'm on the JeepPatriot.com forum as well and there is twice (make that three times) as much activity on their forum vs. the MyJeepCompass forum. Welcome to the site!

Thanks for replying!

I'm gonna consider to register to JeepPatriot.Com too... anyway Compass and Patriot share like 99% of components except for body parts!
