Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2010 Jeep Compass Owner Comments

problem #2

When it rains and the vehicle is stationary there is no obvious sign of a leak however when driving after the rain a steady stream of water comes out of the map light. It flows on to the radio and heater controls. I am very good about keeping a paper towel handy to absorb as much as possible. Unfortunately I now have an extremely wet carpet that is molding. Jeep states that I should clean the drains for the sunroof, which I do quite often. They also state that the vehicle is not under warranty and they can not offer a fix with out charging me. I have had this vehicle for just over a year and I purchased it from a Jeep dealer.

Compass 4-cyl

  • 3,700 miles
The vehicle was hit on left front door and front quarter panel propelling it into a parking lot over a curb. The left front tire blew upon impact. The vehicle was repaired by a Chrysler/Jeep dealership. After the vehicle was fixed several people got sick in the car or just after exiting the car. This lasted for six thousand miles over three months period of time. I purchased a carbon monoxide tester because how many people got sick. It went off on the third day of it being in the vehicle. Another Chrysler dealership inspected the vehicle and found an exhaust leak that was over looked by the first dealership when they repaired the vehicle after the accident. The insurance company came and re-inspected the car and paid for the overlooked exhaust leak damage. The insurance company estimator said the front left door was not closing properly and needed adjusting. The left door along with both upper and lower hinges were replaced right after the accident. The first dealership that originally repaired the car after the accident then inspected the vehicle and found the door needed more than adjusting. They had to replace the driver lower hinge as they said it was a "defective". they said it was covered under the "warranty". the door was making popping sounds. The whole door would drop down upon opening it. The defective hinge tweaked the door so that at the bottom of the door there was a gap. The rubber weather seal also came loose as well after the accident. The weather strip clips would not hold it around the door properly. At the top of the door with the defective hinge it looked as though it was closed. The bottom of the door was not closed all the way. I believe this gap at the bottom of the door was the entry point for the carbon monoxide to enter the vehicle causing multiple persons to become ill that were not in the vehicle when the accident took place.
