The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Compass. After pulling into the garage and turning off the vehicle, the contact heard a noise as if the vehicle were still running. She noticed smoke pouring out underneath the hood. She called the fire department because the garage was attached to her home and she wanted to prevent damage to her house. By the time the fire department arrived, the smoke subsided. She called the dealer and informed them that the vehicle would be towed. The manufacturer has not been notified. The current and failure mileages were 55,396.

I own a 2007 Jeep Compass that was purchased new in June of 2006. Beginning in may of this year the car began suffering both low and high speed engine stalls, where the warning 'bell' sounds, all of the dash warning lights come on, and the engine completely shuts down. This car is driven by my college age daughter and represents a major safety hazard to both her and those around her. Most recently this condition occurred on I-85 South of atlanta in a major construction zone while she was going 60 miles an hour. Two weeks ago the opelika Jeep dealership did the 'software upgrade' recommended by a technical service bulletin, but obviously it did not resolve the problem. At the time the dealer could not 'recreate' the problem. The vehicle is currently at a dealership in union city, ga where it was towed. In past failures the car was able to be restarted after remaining turned off for several minutes. With the latest occurrence the car was completely dead and the engine would not start at all. In fact it acted as if the transmission interlock was engaged because turning the key produced absolutely nothing. This car represents a major safety hazard to the driver and those on the road around her.
