I sincerely wish you luck. They wouldn't do anything for me even after 3 service trips and numerous e-mails and phone calls to Jeep. I took about 3000.00 loss and had to buy Subaru...I just think everone with these problems need to post it everywhere on internet and with the BBB. Eventually the people who rates cars will address this problem.

If I were you I would see if you can return you compass. mine did the same it was the transmission, the dealership didnt tell me what was actually wrong just tried to charge me a fortune to fix nothing that was actually wrong. The car eventually went and I was stuck on the side of a high way in the canadian rockies. NOT FUN. I will never buy a jeep or dodge ever again after being treated the way I was by the dealership. They actually laughed when I told them because they didn't do their job I was stranded, and offered no help not even calling ahead to another dealership to see if they could take good care of me for their mistake.

I bought my Compass in 08, it was a 07. Thinking I wouldn't have the problems I've been having right now.... I've almost overhauled the front end suspension.... Only have the inner tie rods to replace. That's not before the struts, rocker arms and outer tie rods.... Not only that, I'm having headlight problems and what I think window problems from what I've read. My husband and I are stumped on the these god forsaken headlights... WTF is going on? Low beams don't work now but high beams work. High beam has blown out on the other side(so thank god I'm not high beaming everyone while I drive). When my husband looks it up, it's this wallet gouging price to fix cause we can't find the tool to fix it ourselves other than going to dealer. What can I do?????HEEEEELLLPPPP!!!

I too have 2012 Comapss and have that whistlig issue. I have taken it in several times...and I was lucky during the ride along it happened. But like you said they were unable to get it to do again. They told me that they made a report on this and hope that Jeep will see there IS a problem and to fix it !!! There are several other issues I have had with this. Also after the recall for the gas sensor my Jeep wont start the same. There are times it acts like it having a hard time starting. The Jeep dealer I took it to fix the recall said there is nothing wrong. I said it NEVER did that before and now it seems everytime I have Jeep touch my car something doesn't work the same. The muffler is louder and they said it all good. It is either people just do not want to take the time to fix it...Jeep says just do not touch it.

#192 of 193 Re: 2013 Jeep Compass "clicking/clapping" when engine turns off
Dec 05, 2013 (2:12 pm)
I have a 2013 Compass with 17k miles and still under factory warranty, just purchased from a private owner. The issue I have is one similar to the one described above where something always "clicks/claps" for a few seconds every time I turn the engine off.
They told me at the dealership that it was normal function after that particular part comes to an full "off" state. I do not believe it. I does not make sense and I never experienced that with any other vehicle I have owned.
Any insight on this? Thanks in advance.
#193 of 193 2013 Jeep Compass is a piece of crap

Have had the vehicle for less than 6 months and it has more issues than any other vehicle I have owned.
Problem #1 High pitched whistling noise from the engine area, noticed the day after I bought it
It took over 3 weeks to "fix" the problem and that was after they said it was fixed on two separate occasions. Final diagnosis was something with the throttle body but they had to call in a special mechanic from the manufacturer to get the noise to go away.
Problem #2 Noise when turning the steering wheel left
Took the vehicle in a couple of days ago, they said it was because my power steering fluid was low.
Problem #3 Went to pick up the vehicle today and there was a loud noise coming from the engine area when I started it; this happened the other day but went away after the car warmed up. So I left the vehicle there for repair.
I am so fed up with this vehicle, it clearly is not a reliable car. I called the Chrysler Group LLC Customer Care line today (877-426-5337) and asked what my options were. The lady was very nice and was able to see my repair/problem history. She called the dealership and got the shop foreman involved. I'm sincerely hoping I have no more problems with this jeep but in the event that I do I will be demanding the vehicle be bought back.
I will never buy another jeep again.
