My favorite car. Why it is the best vehicle I ever had.

I love my Jeep because of reliability, ruggedness, being able to drive on bad roads with ease, I can load it up from the back and still have lots of room for people to sit. People seem to respect me and my Jeep much more than when I drove a sedan. They are classy looking now. The ride or feeling you get when driving a Jeep is great.

Going strong. . . Very reliable and relatively maintenance free!

Only minor issues with regard to repairs. . . Just an air-conditioning compressor. Other than that just basic maintenance with battery and tire replacements. It is very reliable, not quiet. . . But reliable. It seems to be holding up pretty well, but I am good about getting oil changes and maintenance on a regular basis.

50/50 needs a few more luxury items.

Kind of small inside. Suspension loud. Easy 4wd. Need Allen wrench for wheel cap removal. If you don't have unable to fix flat tire on the road. Love fold down of back seats. Need more exterior color choices. Time keeps losing on the radio. Love side mirrors. Wish they were heated. Needs auto start.

Report Receipt Date:
Sep 2, 2010
NHTSA Campaign:
10E043000
Summary:
MARATHON IS RECALLING CERTAIN SEAT COVERS, BRAND SUPERHIDES WITH PART NUMBERS 593, 594, 578, 960, 228, 228-09, 267-08, 333, 625, AND 630, SOLD FOR USE AS AFTERMARKET EQUIPMENT FOR VARIOUS PASSENGER VEHICLES. THESE SEAT COVERS ARE MADE OF HEAVIER THREAD AND ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SEATS CONTAINING SIDE AIRBAGS. THE HEAVIER SEAT COVER COULD INTERFERE WITH FULL DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIRBAG IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.
Consequence:
AN IMPROPERLY DEPLOYED AIRBAG COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY.
Remedy:
MARATHON WILL NOTIFY OWNERS OF RECORD AND REPLACE THE SEAT COVER FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING SEPTEMBER 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MARATHON AT 1-800-735-2769.
Air Bags , Electrical System , Seat Belts Jun 4, 2013
Report Receipt Date:
Jun 4, 2013
NHTSA Campaign:
13V233000
Summary:
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Jeep Compass and Patriot vehicles manufactured May 6, 2008, through July 20, 2012. The affected vehicles have a software error which may result in a delayed deployment or non-deployment of the seatbelt pre-tensioners and/or side airbags.
Consequence:
In the event of a rollover necessitating airbag deployment, the software error can lead to a delayed deployment or non-deployment of the side curtain airbag and/or seatbelt pre-tensioners. As a result, vehicle occupants have an increased risk of injury in a crash.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will correct the software free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall number is N01.
Seat Belts, Air Bags Sep 15, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Sep 15, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V668000
Summary:

The Occupant Restraint Control (OCR) module may short circuit, preventing the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and side air bags from deploying in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
If the frontal air bags, seat belt pretensioners, and side air bags are disabled, there is an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants in the event of a vehicle crash that necessitates deployment of these safety systems.
Remedy:
Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the OCR, free of charge. Interim letters informing owners that parts are not available yet were mailed on October 26, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available in June 2017. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S61.
