Just a tidbit on the ball joints.
They are not an independent part on the Compass. They're part of the control arm along with bushings. Hence, out of warranty it's a much more expensive part. I have see them listed at US parts places around $150 ball park and I don't know what they would cost in Canada while the dealer price is double from Jeep and don't last anyway.
Don't you just love being ripped off and have them tell you oh its normal. Also if they wear too much this will cause major wear problems to your tire wear pattern and/or cupping that some people have reported already. That is not covered under warranty. You're still on the hook for a new set of tires (4 if its a 4x4), more joy eh. LOL
You pretty well have to check them every oil change or second change max for wear.
