Love my Jeep

published

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.

Best purchase

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.

I liked the car when I bought it. After one year of driving, one night one the busy freeway the car

published

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.

Excellent purchase

published

Been driving a 2014 compass(limited) for over two and half years now and no issues at all.
Good handling on both 2WD and 4WD, have done quite a few long trips and always felt confidant with the drive.
Decent interior, good legroom for the size of the car, dash could have been better, but mind you its a JEEP so I'm fine for it to have the somewhat old school Jeep interior which lacks the fluidity in modern cars.

A negative though is the service costs from an authorized dealer which is in the $500 range, almost double than other brand of cars.

Decent

published

So far so good. A simple, solid, decent car for around town. Drive is quiet and the car has enough power for city driving. It is not as refined as some vehicles in the same price range but has all the features needed. Much better than some reviews might suggest

Don't buy a small Jeep, the big Overland was a dream though.

Disappointed comparing to my previous Jeep

published

I was a Jeep person. Due to a family reason I need to temporarily downgrade the size of my vehicle so naturally I went again for a Jeep. Unfortunately, this one is not good at all. To name some issues delivered with the new vehicle: steering wobble at certain speed, tire pressure control false alarms, consumption much higher than advertised, wind noise, one heated seat not working, self initiated false alarms in the middle of the night waking up all neighbors, remote opening failure etc. I am no longer a Jeep person.

Warning about Jeep Australia

published

I bought a Jeep compass, worst mistake I ever made. It turned out to be a lemon and they didn't care. They breached the contract of sale as I had items on there that were required prior to delivery. Not all were completed.

Car would stall and would lose all power while driving. The service department manager said it was because it was a cheap car and the gear box is a cheap one that doesn't really work well. After explaining the issue many times and providing video they finally saw the real problem, never fixed it, kept dodging my calls. Then when it came time for a refund they ran....

In the end they had the car (I was paying for) for 6 months trying to fix it and it was never fixed. Now I am left with no car and a debt.

Really like my 2010 Jeep Compass

published

have had a couple little things, like the ball bearings in the one back tire, that cost 190$, Grogan Chrysler jeep reimbursed me since the noice started about the time the warranty expired. Right now front ball joint on one front tire is being replaced, cost around 270$. Luckily I am in for 24,000 mile checkup. Otherwise......I am satisfied.

Love my Compass!

published

we bought this instead of a rav 4 & are soooo happy with it.
Fun to drive, easy to park, luxury accessories and great warranty service! The only negative thing is that a rearward facing baby seat means the passenger or driver needs to sit a bit awkward. But for price comparison I can't complain! Such a bargain!

Would never buy one...

published

I just rented an almost new (3,000km) Jeep Compass. I drove it on freeways, up and down mountains and parked in various odd places. I found it very, very underpowered going up reasonably steep roads near Springbrook, but hardly the steepest inclines. Sat Nav was average, if I didn't have a sense of the right direction at times and fully trusted it, I'd have taken wrong turns. Reversing is tough, I see why it has a camera, because the rear side view is almost completely blocked by weird rear side window design. Suspension on tight highway corners feels like you don't quite have 100% control. I would not buy one even at $10K less than RRP, which I was shocked at. Jeep needs to do better to compete.

Jeep Compass Lemon

I retired and bought a new car to give me peace of mind. Guess how wrong you can be? 12 months trouble free and then problems and the dealer doesnt want to know you. Power problems ,computer problems and mechanical problems. Never buy another Jeep or chrysler product and nor w2ill my family.

Little room in back seat

published

Took a Jeep Compass for a test drive. A big issue for a family is that the console extends into the back area, especially the cup holders, effectively not allowing three children, let alone adults to sit in the back. Appeared to be underpowered for the size of the car.

Internal design inadequate

Compass MK (2007-2017)

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.

Hi Kaz,
My Jeep is an automatic and I haven’t had this issue, however mine is a different year.

Put the handbrake on before putting into Park on a hill so that the handbrake rather than transmission holds the car; like it says in the owners manual.
