New Compass squeaks
I'm new to the forum and just bought my first Jeep very recently.
It is a 2016 Jeep Compass Sport and I'm loving it so far.
The only problem is that it squeaks in the rear area while driving.
I took it back to the dealer and they said they fixed it.
It squeaked immediately as I was driving out.
I drove it for the next few days to see if their lube, etc will settle in.
Surprisingly it went away on the day I was going to bring it back.
It was squeak free for the next couple days and I was so happy.
Yesterday I noticed the squeak had returned but much much quieter than before, when I went over a speed bump.
When the squeak was strong initially, I could reproduce it by bouncing up and down on the rear passenger seat.
When the squeak went away, I could not reproduce it the same way so figured it fixed itself.
When the squeak returned but much much quieter, I cannot seem to reproduce it by bouncing on the passenger seat, only hearing it while driving when there's no other cars around.
Just thought I'd ask and see if you guys have any ideas with this issue?
I don't think the dealer will be able to do anything if I can't reproduce it and the squeak is too quiet to be noticed on a busy road.
Thanks in advance.
