Compass-the $20K junkpile
2014 Jeep Compass, the biggest disappointment that I ever had the displeasure to have purchased. Couldn't even get 50K out of a $20,000 vehicle.. piece of garbage!
19K the bearing in the transmission goes bad, replaced under warranty
22K plastic boot in right front tire torn
30K had to replace the stock tires
35K the rear shocks and struts - SHOT
45K clutch/transmission/fly wheel needs to be rebuilt
48K passenger side headlight intermittently goes out (another lovely Jeep problem they can't fix)
50K the bearing that was replaced at 19K needs to be replaced again
Mind you, this vehicle was 4 years old! I owed $2K on it and was looking at putting at least $3,000 more dollars into it. Never in my life have I had to put any money (other than oil changes) into a car that had less than 50K miles on it.
Jeep should be embarrassed that they produced such a cheap piece of garbage! Thanks to Jeep, this is the LAST american made car I will ever buy again. I ditched this car as fast as I could and purchased a Hyundai with much better quality and better options. I had planned on keeping this car 10 years and thanks to the lack of quality, I now had to go into another car payment which I wasn't anticipating.
Even the garage where I have my vehicle worked on confirms all the Jeep Compass owners experience the same situation.
A class action law suit should be filed against them.
Thanks for NOTHING Jeep. I don't miss any opportunity to tell people I know, who are looking to buy a car, to stay as far far away from Jeep as they possibly can.
