Editor's Overview

Riding atop an aging platform, the 2015 Jeep Compass claims only mediocre status when compared with fresher 5-passenger compact SUV crossovers such as the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Subaru Forester, Ford Escape or even its new sibling, the Cherokee. Those competitors start beyond the Compass' sub-$20,000 base price, but they offer better refinement, newer technology and more satisfying on-road manners.

Tough & awesome is my Jeep compass. It is cheap on gas but travels fantastic.

My Jeep compass is very comfortable to travel in. The mileage is so economically in savings it allows us to vacation longer. There have been two separate accidents I have been involved with in my Jeep compass, fault was the other drive. I was hit hard t-boned on drivers side two yrs. ago and it runs still like new. I am short so sitting in the driver's seat and seeing over the steering wheel was an issue for me until I just sat on a pillow and now I feel taller and more confident driving my Jeep . It truly is a tough and awesome machine!

More room. I love the room in the back after the seats are folded back.

I love my Jeep compass but I wish it had more room. I wish it was wider in the front cause every time I put my arm on the arm rest it hits the other persons are. I wish it was a little taller since I am a tall woman. I like the room in the back. It could be a little bigger since I have to have my seat all the way back all the way. I love the fact that the seats fold down in the back because then you can fit quite a bit back there. Make sure when you get this vehicle you really love it.

2015 Jeep compass is reliable, sturdy and not fancy.

For our next car, we were looking for something a bit bigger and a bit rougher. Our Jeep compass has fit that bill perfectly. Living in a mountainous area, the 4-wheel drive is essential, and seat warmers an added bonus. This car is very reliable and gets great miles per gallon. Only issue I have with it is that I wish the stereo system was a more up-to-date system. There's no touch screen display and the phone connectivity is a bit complicated as it is all voice operated.

Steering > Hydraulic Power Assist > Hose, Piping, And Connections Dec 22, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Dec 22, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V878000
Summary:
Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain model year 2015 Jeep Compass and Patriot vehicles manufactured January 1, 2015, to May 11, 2015. During assembly, the power steering hose retention clamp may have been installed at an incorrect location, resulting in the detachment of the low pressure return hose.
Consequence:
If the power steering fluid return hose detaches, it would leak fluid and increase the risk of a fire.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the return power steering hose clamp, repositioning the clamp as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on February 5, 2016. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is R68.
