Exclamation 2018 Compass Limited

Good day all,
I am a new member and have many questions. Please HELP

My husband and I purchased our Compass on December 16, 2017. The next day on our way home, we were driving on the highway and our dash board went blank. That was fixed, apparently, if no one else has been informed of this, this is a known problem with this model. We have had many issues with the vehicle since then, but the one I am most concerned about and have the questions about is: On February 8 I was driving the vehicle on a highway at approximately 60 mph when my steering went out. I received 5 messages on the dash, Service Power steering, power dynamic torque steering, service front collision warning system, service ESC system and finally service hill start system. The dealer had the vehicle for 16 days and jeep told them to give it back to us. They did nothing. There were no codes sent to the computer with this issue. I am afraid to drive it. My question is, has anyone else had this issue or something similar?

All of us seemed to have experienced issues, mine has been mostly electrical with the radio going out, ESS not working or disabling itself, the front collision camera becoming unavailable. If I could do it all over again, I won't buy this. Should have bought the RAM I wanted.

I battled Jeep over similar electrical issues for 5+ months ... 9 trips to various dealershios, 50+ days in the shop. I'm still not convinced they are fully resolved as it still does strange things. When these things are lemons they are LEMONS and nobody seems to know how to fix them. My question for you is did these issues seem to be impacted by colder weather? Mine had issues with faulty computer chips being affected by the cold... So they think.

My 4x4 Limited has been working great. I think the best package to be in for these are the ones that do not have the collision camera and the rest of the advanced safety group. I have no stupid front-bumper camera, almost no electronic safety nannies, but I still get a sweet 8.4 inch radio, power seat, leather, premium trim inside and out and all for the low low price of simply having to manually make a point of not running over any small children in the street and manually having to not smash into the rear-end of the car ahead of me because I am too busy eating a sandwich while driving (/end sarcasm)
