2014 Jeep Compass Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 282015

Compass Sport 2.0L I4

  • CVT transmission
  • 26,240 miles


I just purchased this Jeep on 9/18/15 with just over 25k miles. While driving home that day from the dealer the hot oil light came on. It was 96 degrees here in Tampa Bay and rush hour traffic so when I finally got moving the light went out and all was good...until today. Driving to Tarpon Springs on Rt 54 the damn light comes on again WHILE I'm driving...fuhhhhhh! Pull over and go straight to Google Search. Lo and behold EVERYONE is having overheating issues with the JF011E transmission.

Oh did I mention I was driving to work? Anyways, 15 mins later continue to drive. There is this weird"supercharger-like whine" that sounds when the car slows down all of a sudden. Speed limit is 50-60 mph most of Rt. 54 heading towards US 19. About 3 miles later I hit a red light, go to accelerate when it turns green, rpms shoot up to almost 5k and then it shudders and jerks into whatever infinite gear it was searching for. The car is in D the whole time. Still accelerating the car sounds like it grew a pair with the whine growing louder then boom...hot a$$ oil light again! WTF is going on???

Google closest Jeep dealer which is the Ferman dealer on US 19. Walk in and they said go to service. Guy behind the counter saw me pull up and before I walked in the door said "transmission" and I said "how did you know?" He said take it back where you got it and get anything off their lot but not anything with a Nissan made CVT ever again. He then walked away from his desk with me standing there. If the Jeep dealer tells you to take it back and the forums are showing cars with less than 30k dying out I don't feel safe one bit traveling as much as do for work as a LMT. That VW Jetta TDi ain't looking so bad now...
