Rattling noise and can't exceed 80mph

Hello. I purchase a jeep compass limited 4x4 2009 model in 2012. It had been used for just 1 year and parked for about 6 months before I purchased. It had done7 miles at time of purchase. Currently, I have done 6k miles. I loved the car until mid this year. I began experiencing some heavy movement under the car and was told by mechanic it was the differential. We got it changed, now the car can barely run beyond 80mph and the transmission is terrible. The car fails to change gear quickly with the accelerator pedal on the floor, picks up speed very slowly. There is also this revolving sound beneath the car when when I am about to take off. Sounds like brokenballs in bearings. Is it possible to get assistance in this forum. I love this car to bits and not thinking of selling it off anytime soon.

Hey Joshuaddom,

I am sorry to hear about your recent concerns with your Compass. I would advise you to have the vehicle diagnosed at your servicing FCA dealership. If the concern is easily replicated a diagnosis can be given.

Sitting is not good for most vehicles. Depending where you are (no profile) rust may get going on various parts that rotate or no lubed well. Brakes will certainly suffer and likely cleaned up at least.

Unless you're doing some maintenance yourself take it in to get fixed up.
