Vehicles Affected: Approximately 25,800 model-year 2017-18 Jeep Compass SUVs
The Problem: The brightness of the backlighting for the instrument panel cluster can’t be adjusted, which can affect the driver’s ability to see at night, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will update the instrument panel cluster software, as necessary, for free.
