I have mixed feeling
The car is serviced on regular basis. Use it for doing chores around the house and to do school rounds for grandkids.
The car abruptly stopped on number of occasions on busy street making it extremely dangerous for the driver and accompanying passengers. The service centre had no clue when I took it to them until an NRMA Road side assistance mechanic pointed that the Crankshaft Position Sensor Open Circuit (P0335) was failing at times and must be replaced to avoid inevitable fatality. Consequently it was replaced with a non-genuine part, at a...

Does what it says on the tin
This is our day to day, carry the grandkids, put the bikes on the roof, go to the tip with the trailer on, car. The economy is outstanding, av 7 ltr/100km all the time. Faults - none. The interior is plush enough and the performance and handling is well in the range of its class. I really like driving it and my wife prefers it to my Mercedes SLK to drive. I didn't say she was perfect!
Service is fixed price for 5 years, and pricing is reasonable.
The 9 speed German ZF auto gearbox is worth the price of admission.
Purchased in June 2018 for $43,500.00.
Worst car with poor technical and customer service
Bought in 2017, since then had issues with connecting bluetooth, audio, camera, heating and cooling. The whole unit of car is already been replaced 3 times in 2 years and still not working well. I have been advised that they will install another 4th unit, as if im employed by Jeep to often visit their service centre. I have no other job.
Purchased in April 2018 at Northern Motor Group for $40,000.00.
Love my Jeep
I have the Jeep Compass MK 2015 in black automatic. It fits my son his friends and the family dog. We've taken long family trips in this car and it always performs well. Never had an issue with it the whole 5 years.
Purchased in August 2015 at Suttons.
2 months into having car it’s shut off twice due to low oil have been only now told by dealership 2018 Compass were recalled due to faulty engine.
Have had 4 lt oil places and compression test done been told to bring back at another 1000km if issue continues then engine to be replaced.
My concern is if this has already been a problem how can keep and the fta continue to sell them.
When the engine cut out I lost vehicle control crossing busy road with 2 young children in car - where does the accountability stop - this vehicle is unsafe to drive and nobody is taking this seriously. If this continues I will request a case manager and take further.
Purchased in February 2019 at Jeep Dealers for $29,990.00.
Perfect Family Car
Needed a bigger car for the family as my Suzuki Swift just couldnt handle it anymore. I was sold on the Jeep from the first test drive. It somehow manages to be spacious and comfortable as an SUV without looking like a tank on the road. The drive is so smooth and I struggle to find a single flaw with the car.

Those horror stories about Jeep are still true
I’ll start off with a warning, do not buy a Jeep! We were really impressed with the car, it was good value for money and all the additional features really gave it a feeling of luxury and class. That feeling has absolutely diminished now that we are 8 months into our ownership and the car is at the dealership (for the sixth time) pending a complete replacement of its engine!
Since purchase we’ve had the whole entertainment unit replaced as it freezes and is non-responsive (still does this even after replacement), and we’ve also got an issue...with the onboard clock (constantly out of sync, no available fix) and the self parking. Our most concerning issue relates to excessive consumption of oil. We found this out when the car came to a halt with a oil pressure low warning on a busy road. A visit to the dealer resulted in a top up and a warning to check the oil levels. A month later and the car had gone through a litre of oil and the dealer conducted an oil consumption test. Following the test, it was confirmed that the car is using too much oil and the solution is an entire engine replacement. Currently FCA can’t even tell us when this will occur because the engine is on back order from overseas, nobody can give us an accurate timeframe. Despite concerns around the safety of driving the car, the dealer and FCA insisted the car is safe for the road, but we aren’t convinced and can’t risk the car stopping on a busy road again. I would honestly suggest you avoid this brand and this model of car, a simple google search on this model and brand finds numerous other concerns around oil consumption and issues dealing with FCA. The biggest issue we’ve had is that the dealer can never just “fix” anything, it always requires them to lodge cases with FCA and then bring it back another time... which just annoys me because it’s so inefficient and a real waste of time. The biggest thing is that the dealership seem inexperienced and unqualified to even diagnose and repair problems, every single issue we’ve had is “something new” and requires consultation with the head office. Honestly, how can you sell a car and not give your dealerships training on issues and how to manage them. Don’t fall for the sales gimmicks, Jeep are absolutely horrible to deal with once you’ve got a problem. Ours still hasn’t been resolved and so far the people we’ve dealt with have been useless! I lodged a formal complaint and had some young lady call who clearly didn’t even read my complaint because she had zero idea what the complaint was about. Luckily, I’ve sent a complaint to the CEO and we’ve finally got a case manager. We are unfortunately stuck in a 4 year lease otherwise we would be selling the car immediately! Our aim is to force FCA into a replacement or buy back so that we can just move on with our lives!

The Jeep Compass is a nice SUV, For long traveling , this the SUV.
Really good on the NZ roads , the got lot of function.
For city run , high of the fuel ,but for long distance , really great.
Try this and you all will love it.
I use my car for commuting and family transport
The back seats are wide enough to have two car seats and a person in the middle, I love the recline feature as well! The only thing I would like is air conditions vents in the rear as it can get a bit warm.
Okay had issues
Good car however I have had issues with the Jeep. Gear box went a week after I brought it brand new. Has it fixed and no issues since. I would buy a Jeep again maybe not a compass but defs a cherokkie. Been a great car and a good little zip around car
Jeeps are better than critics say
Jeeps always been good had Patriot for price style but was a little cramped for rear passengers was hit by young driver and both cars were considered wright offs I do question that as mine only had headlamp wing and front bumper damaged. The Compass north more room side styling not to my liking but got as a free replacement so was an good upgrade Both have CVT box love them better than Auto or manual.Don't need 4x4 it's all we want.Only things are bonnet catch on left, wipers and indicators wrong side and self cancel if you turn wheel slightl...y and small clocks.Nothing is perfect.Jeep was the original that others followed Land Rover was the first to try to take over I like the ally body but far too over priced.Never let me down last year drove from Cairns to Brisbane with half hour rests 2 drivers no problems still going strong.
I liked the car when I bought it. After one year of driving, one night one the busy freeway the car
Love the car, the Color is perfect, the exterior of the car is comfortable. The leg room at the back little bit tight. Running cost is more than I expected apart from the problem with safety than I don’t know how can be resolved if the service people don’t know what is wrong with the car. The car stops on the middle of the road with no warning losing the power. After may you 20 seconds starts again as nothing happened. Too dangerous to drive on the road especially on the freeway.
Just purchased 2013 Jeep Compass absolutely superb car, Performs and handles well nice and quite, has plenty of leg and head room and lots of gadgets i.e. sat nav, reversing camera, dash cam front and back, even has boom box speakers in the tailgate, it's reliable and very fuel efficient. Couldn't ask for a better driving experience cant wait to hit the open road.
Very happy with this car.
For $10000 less then all the other SUV's we can't really fault this car. Bought as demo in 2013 it has been very reliable. Comfortable and still stylish looking. Cons- boot is small and it can be sluggish and thirsty on fuel however being that I am not a race car driver and I don't travel far it suits me fine. Had all the mod cons and easy to drive and park.
Great Car! Excellent comfort! High Fuel Consumption!
Great powerful car, good torque and easy to drive. Decent interior, dash does look inferior but complete with required gadgets as needed, excellent NAV system, sufficient mp3s storage of 20GB inbuilt hard disk, ample of interior space with great legroom. Voice recognition for phone calls does have some drawbacks but isn't an issue if speak slowly. Great for long drives, trips and picnics. ample of room in the boot for camping, sporting or for just a weekend away. Love the purchased on a whole and the one thing I had to compromise with will be the high fuel consumption on Ron95 or Ron98! Otherwise it has been my best buy!
Questions & Answers
I am having problems with my Jeep 2013 North gears. They seem to keep sticking in park. I have to pump brake and spend time trying to get it out if park? Anyone else had this happen.
