Wheel Bearings !!!

I've got a 2008 Jeep Compass. I had to replace a rear bearing last summer and of course they were replaced in pairs. Again I'm getting the same noise as before that lead to their replacement. Does this have the makings of a Common Defect ???? I've just cleared 53,000 km's . Thanks

I take it you took it to the dealership and this was performed under warranty? Were they getting any play in the wheels before taking them off (with the car on the lift)? Sometimes tire noise can be confused with bearing problems, but I would have them check for any open Recalls or TSB's (Technical Service Bulletins) on the issue. I'm not finding anything on it, but they have access to Chrysler service info, but were they able to show you the bearings were actually bad?

Gentlemen: 1st Zackman I live 35 minutes East of Ottawa. I just came away from the Dealership . Definitely something wrong considering that's 2 Rear Wheel Bearings worn out on the Left Side in 53,000 km's. The right side had been replaced as well back the 1st time I had issues with the Bearings. They made note at the Dealership the problem lyes with the Manufacture not on the Driver.
That said , Would Anyone hazard a guess as to what would cause the Bearings to Breakdown , especially with only say 25,000 km's on them each time. Thanks

I will guess poor installation, or poor materiels. My 2007 has 67,000 miles on it so far and the wheel bearings seem to be holding up well. I am worried about some front end noise though, it has been slightly noticable since I had the right front lower control arm replaced after collision with a curb.

Well yeah, you're right, just checking if you-all paying attention....LOL

But Mini or Fiat, what possible connect could either of these have to the all America Red Blooded JEEP. Built in N.A. and widely used. Probably the best know brand in N.A.

I am Canadian so don't bash me on that note above. But JEEP is a N.A, hence American ok... cheers.

The only thing that Jeep and Fiat share is R&D. For instance the 2011 Jeep Phoenix, AKA the Fiat Panda, are based on the same platform.

2009 Jeep Compass North 4X4, Sunburst Orange

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

Fine that may or may not be the case due to Mercedes alliance. But the application is so far remove. It's like a land rover and moon rover.
I hope my Jeeps stand the test of endurance.

I'm still looking for a more up to date article on this, something that spells out a bit more of the details of the 5 year plan, but here ya' go:

Land Rover vs. Moon Rover, now that's an interesting analogy, but I tend to agree, there is nothing analogous between Fiat (Fix It All The Time) and our beloved Jeep.....

2008 Compass rear wheel bearings

I just took my Compass in for grinding noise and the dealer says the rear wheel bears are shot. There's only 53k miles on the car. Sounds like they have an issue. Plus I was told this is not a warrenty issue!

Please include configuration, year, 4x4, etc see others signatures or paste at the bottom of your post so we can see what you have.

I am becoming more and more concerned about the reliability and longevity of the Compass having recently purchase the 2009 listed below for the long term. I don't what to be rebuilding the suspension and other components which should last more than 100k. As for your situation and depending on the year etc it should be covered. I would call Chrysler customer relations and complain about the premature failures on that and/or other components. the can authorize the dealer to perform repairs under warranty.

Let us know how that goes.

The Compass is a 2008 sport 4X4 with the cvt transmission. I did call Chrysler and started a claim process. They told me I should expect a call this Monday or Tuesday.

Excellent!!!
If everyone who had/has tie rod, arm and other premature failures calls and complains. they will clearly seen a big trend of discontented owners and may eventually rectify the parts quality or design failings. They should not be failing that early or that low millage. Jeep is suppose to be synonymous with durability. Clearly the 2007 and newer models are having the same problems it appear so far on this forum.

The more flack they get the more attention they'll give it and benefit the whole community of owners.

Well Done!!!!

I agree with tripplec, the more people who let there concerns be heard, the more likely it may be to actually have something done about it! BTW Dennis, welcome to the forum! Be sure to keep us posted on your situation and I hope you enjoy the forum!

Any tire wear with the rear. I am having poor tire wear one side only. right rear. Left rear wheel bearing was replaced under warranty. Now have 63k miles and making bad noise again. This has got to be a design or material problem. Any answers out there?

I don't see a TSB on the bearings, but you're not the first one to have this problem unfortunately.
