Rusted crossmembers - subframe
I bought a used jeep compass from a dealership that did not disclose it had rusted cross members. Jeep covered the cross members. They did not cover any of the other parts. Here I am with a jeep I had for literally 2 weeks shelling out almost $1000 in parts because of jeeps design of the vehicle and they will not help cover the cost.
trans went out,$2700, on board computers went $4000. A real piece of junk. If this is the best that Jeep can do Toyota here I come
Excellent AWD small SUV
I've had VW Jetta TDI, 5 Subarus, and a Jeep Liberty TDI. Due to no longer needing the towing capacity of the diesel we traded in for the 2012 compass and never looked back. Cute little SUV, have had many questions about it as it is attractive. MPG is 21 - 29. Needs minimum maintenance, as it is a "world vehicle" [can be serviced anywhere without special tools, parts or knowledge.]-- basic and simple, uses ordinary spark plugs, oil etc. However in spite of manual advice, CVT fluid must be changed every 35 to 40K miles to ensure longevity. Adequate engine performance, very quiet except for sound of ram air intake system. Able to tow 2000#. Now 8 years old and still on original battery, brakes, etc. Internet review reveals this vehicle getting well over 100K with normal maintenance. Of all the vehicles of this type now available, I still choose this one -- best value and reliability!
