Never will I buy a jeep again. Everything to repair this vehicle is hard to find and overly priced. (And it needs constant repairs)

This jeep has been a total POS since we''d bought it. It had 56,000 miles on it. FWD. Withing 3 months, I had to replace the battery, a starter, fuel pump, and the engine block. I have had continuing issues with it starting (or NOT starting) since day one. I turn the key, the radio comes on, the fan/blower comes on, cabin lights as well... just nothing from the starter. They replaced the TIPM a couple months ago. It has happened twice now since they replaced the TIPM. I have filed a formal complaint to the Attorney General''s Office in hopes of getting this thing deemed a Lemon. Fingers crosse

This strange crossover compact 4wd jeep is a real sleeper! No longer needing the awesome towing power of my 2005 Liberty CRD, I traded it in on a 2012 Compass. At first I thought I messed up. After the Liberty diesel the Compass CVT felt detuned, delayed and just sluggish.
But it is very quite and mild mannered. After some 30K miles I continue to be impressed. After working thru many issue with the Liberty Diesel, the Compass stayed out of the shop, save oil and filter changes. Nary an engine light! It took me quite a while to figure out how to use the CVT 4WD system. Now I love it! 20/25
