hello fellow Compass owners, i'm new to this forum. I have a 07 compass that was bought in 08 with 36k miles or 58k km on it. I've been driving it since then. It now has 55k miles or 89k km on it. I've been experiencing some problems for the past year. First of all, i used to be able to get apprx. 280 miles or 450 KM from full to lights come on. Now i'm only getting mostly 230 Miles or 350 km. This is a huge concern since its a great decrease and i;ve been driving the same way. :dunno:My second problem is the low beam light. At night time when i turn on the low beam, the right side does not turn on. But high beam works. I have changed the light bulb, but it didn't resolve the problem. What could be wrong?

Is fuel economy related to tire? I know i dun have much left on my tires and i've been noticing the " engine braking" kind of experience when i let off the gas. Could it be a transmission problem? And when should i change the transmission fluid?

PLZ HELP!!!! THX :sadwavey:

Well again, welcome to the forum glad to have you join us! Something definitely doesn't sound right with your mpg's. Do you have any of the maintenance history on your Compass? Sounds like it's in need of a tune up, i.e., spark plug change, air filter change if they haven't been done. Those two things alone will do wonders for fuel economy. Did your Compass come with an owner's manual? That will tell you when the trans needs serviced as well but good luck!
