Introduced in 2007, the Jeep Compass is a compact SUV positioned between the smaller Renegade and larger Cherokee. The Compass concept, initially unveiled at the 2002 Detroit International Auto Show, featured a two-door body, all-wheel drive, and a 3.7-liter V6 engine. However, the production model from 2007 to 2010 did not carry the "Trail Rated" badge like other Jeep SUVs, as it targeted first-time buyers and those who primarily drive on paved roads. The Compass came with two electronically controlled AWD systems, Freedom Drive I and II, the latter simulating the low-range gear functionality found in off-road vehicles. Powered by a 172hp World I4 petrol engine, the Compass had various trim levels including Sport, Sport SE, Latitude, and the top-end Limited model. To celebrate Jeep's 70th anniversary in 2011, a special edition was released based on the Sport model. After the retirement of the Jeep Patriot and first-generation Compass in 2016, an updated Compass was introduced with a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine and a high-strength steel body. The second-generation Compass, inspired by the larger Cherokee and Grand Cherokee models, was assembled in various locations, including Italy, Mexico, Brazil, China, and India, and is available with standard Latitude and Limited models or special Altitude versions.
The Jeep Compass, while being a compact and affordable SUV known for its strong off-road abilities, is susceptible to common issues like suspension failure and brake grinding. Suspension failure, frequently seen due to harsh road conditions, often manifests as clunking noises from underneath the vehicle, intense front vibration, and uneven or excessive tire wear, which could lead to the vehicle leaning to one side and difficulties in controlling the steering. Maintaining the control arm, control arm bushing, steering knuckle, intermediate shaft, and drive shaft in good condition is essential to prevent such problems. Brake grinding, another common issue especially when the vehicle reaches about 9,000 miles, results in brake noise, reduced brake response, pulsating brake pedals, and visible score marks on the rotors. Inspection of the brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, and brake rotors is advised in these situations. However, proactive routine maintenance is crucial to maintaining the vehicle's condition, with parts like the windshield wiper, headlight, fog light, antenna, antenna mast, and cabin air filter requiring regular attention due to their constant exposure to harsh conditions.
