2015 Jeep Compass Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 202015


  • 10,000 miles


All engine lights came on, electrical components started going out, then car would not go over 10 miles per hour, even with the accelerator pushed all the way down, then the car completely shut down on the middle of a very heavily traffic road. Power steering, all electrical components and engine refused to work. Had to have the Compass towed to nearest dealer and problem was the entire computer system went out. 4 month old vehicle and the entire computer system fried. Took 6 days to get it replaced. Now two months later the exact same thing has happened again and the dealership doesn't seem to care. Says it's under warranty and will be fixed, but don't seem to understand the sever danger this defective vehicle puts my family and me in when we drive it without knowing when and where the computer system will blow again. What if I was pulling out of an intersection and the car shut down like this and my family gets hit by traffic. Something needs to be done!
