mavictoria, ACX is right. I did all the research I possibly could on this vehicle. I wanted the Compass the minute I first saw it on the Jeep website, before they even priced it, but what I did tell my partner is that I will be keeping a very close eye out for any problems that I either notice myself, or read about online. I belong to Alldata, and you can find anything out about it you want. What concerned me at first, was that this car was, in many ways, a very new concept for Jeep, actually one of the few concepts for Jeep that actually made it to production. However, what I have come to know after owning Jeeps for many years, is that I bought this one for the same things I trust in my Cherokee, reliability, dependability, quality. They have a very strong reputation for being ruggedly dependable, which is what I have relied on for all these years, and why I felt and still feel comfortable with that. You made a good choice, as we all did, but with any new technology comes a learning curve. My Cherokee is a '91, and in that year, they did a lot of experimenting, and changed a few things, tried other things out. There were even recalls out for that model year for the brakes. I also have no PCV valve, I have a CCV hose. No wonder when I was getting oil in my air filter, it was hard to pinpoint the problem, because I was looking for something that I was used to being there, but wasn't. I figured out how to bypass it, and kept driving on. Over the course of the years, they work the bugs out. We have a very well built, safe and reliable vehicle for years to come. Just be diligent with your maintenance, and it should remain relatively maintenance and problem free for a good long time.
P.S. - I am a VERY passionate Jeep fan!!!
