Geez bud!! You've got yourself one BIG OL' Lemon there... Sounds to me if it happens to a Compass, its happened to you once or more lol Now i seem to understand your bitterness a little better once I have read the forums moreNot enough miles on it for the front end to fall apart. But start checking your ball joints, tie rod ends. If they go too bad the wheel will break free and tires get destroyed with heavy irregular wear. The front struts are known to fail early worn or leaking. A new design was released. My rear struts failed long time ago and I am a 2009. I figure my fronts will go any month now.
Not me per say its all over the board with these issue and more on the design of the family. The verdict is out on the 2011 though since they have made some changes but whether the reliability of the high failure components still remain will be an unknown until at least the end of the year when enough miles have to put on then and feedback comes in. My failure have fallen into areas others have had at least yet. CVT problems, TIPM failures, rear struts, dash cluster communications failure, rear brakes to name but a few.Geez bud!!

Wow, i am loving the LED headlights! Very nice!On my second MK now, traded in a 2008 Jeep Patriot FDII (112,000kms) for a 2012 Limited FDII Compass. (Currently has 23,000kms)
Purchased Jan 12 2012

430N Navigation Radio
Every Option possible fully loaded, have had it for a year and a half now.
Full interior LED conversion

Rear LED Backup Lights

235/65/17 Cooper Discoverer AT3 Tires

Only had a minor electrical problem when I first bought it, dealer fixed it under warranty. Love everything about the jeep, far more improved over the 2008 I traded in (and that one was very reliable for me)
Fuel economy Wise i'm averaging around 10 or so L/100kms in strictly city driving, highway i'm between 9-9.5 L/100kms. Which is fine mileage for me (FDII's get the "worst" mileage anyways). Fuel consumption is VERY dependant on how you drive.
I offroad in this lots too, never left me stranded. About the only other thing left to do is figure out how to put a winch on the front of it.
