It is not loud. Its like some tiny metal object touching each other. I have observed this on rough roads but not always. If music is turned on then its barely noticeable.

The International service manual mandates replacement at 75k or 5 years. Since mine has crossed 75k and breached the 5 year time frame, I will be voluntarily getting the Timing belt replaced, have requested the service advisor at Sai Service, Hinjewadi Pune to procure the required spares.
Yes, It is 75K Kms or 5 years. If you don't have it as a scheduled replacement then better to get it replaced.

I am actually taken back by relatively low maintenance cost.

That Front brake pad change at 52K ( 7264 with Break Fluid ) included labor charges as well ? Brake disc are still in good condition is really good to know, might be due to your higher highway usage ?
Yes, brake pads + brake fluid with labour charges.

60% of my driving is on the highway and I prefer engine braking than hard braking unless it is really required. So, this maybe helping as well.

BTW, do you still stay around Bannerghatta Road? I remember meeting you in a car wash point during your Linea days. May be about 3 years back. Hope we cross our paths again!

Cheers,

Thank you.

Yes, I remember meeting you and your duster. I still stay around the same area only. Hope to meet you some time.

From the service costs I can say that they look very reasonable;

1) For my 1st service (JC Diesel Longitude - Oct 2019) which was carried out at 11000 kms I was charged 18,500/- approx. (Rs.9,000 materials/consumables + Rs.6,500 labour + taxes).
2) Exactly two years in Sept 21, my battery wore out at 20000 kms in 2 years Rs.8,500/- new battery & same day has left front tyre burst side wall damage. Replaced with Yokohama Rs.7,200/-.
3) The 2nd service was carried out on 16th Nov at 21400 kms and I was charged again Rs.18,000/- approx. (8,000 materials/consumables + 6,500 labour + taxes).
Both the cases Oil change, Oil filter change, AC filter change, Fuel filter change, Air filter change, washer fluid, wheel balancing & alignment. Also they charged on use of Diagnostic System. In two years of ownership I have already spent Rs.52200/-.

Just curious to know, how did you get the highway and city drive data and share graph
are you using data from Jeeplife app?

This seems to be on the higher side. Maybe they did some work outside standard servicing. (Ex: AC duct cleaning, Interior cleaning etc)

I missed out on the battery replacement expense. I paid 8K for battery replacement.

I am not using any app. I note down the ODO (I click a pic of ODO) whenever I go on any drives. And then just feed it on Excel, the old school method

Thats a lot of mile crunching considering the situation since last year. Good to that Compass is holding up thanks to your maintenance.

Have a query. As i am on lookout for pre owned Compass, quite a few I came across had hard clutch even though they had run less than 25k kms and two of them were 4x4. I have driven ones which had light clutch, obviously there seems to be issue with these. Is it possible that if clutch were replaced, would it ride like a new one.

Nice writeup and analysis. This motivates me further as I was intently looking to pick up a second hand Jeep which has run less than 25K. I did notice the petrol Jeeps were selling at a discount, I presume due to the rocketing fuel prices not many buyers are as keen, creating this price drop!

Initial batch had clutch issues, some replaced it under warranty some didn't. It depends on the manufacturing year of the Compass that you tested.

You can check with adneeraj, he recently changed the clutch in his Compass.

The two 4x4 i test drove was Oct 2018 and April manufactured-Oct registered 2019, both under 25k mileage. Am i right in assuming that six month gap points to a display car. As rc card showed single owner, dont think this could be a test drive car.

I am following that thread too and had put a similar query of clutch.

Threads like this are the reasons why there is just no substitute, i repeat, no substitute to TEAM BHP forum and to the automotive love of the members of this community.

Wishing you many more happy miles on Scarlett. The way you have documented the various readings, will put CAT exam aspirants and ISO specification document technical writers to shame. Good to see Compass holding up so well with minimum timely maintenance (pun intended on timing belt).

Btw, on a side note, Scarlett conjures a picture of Madhuri Dixit in my mind, always puts a smile on your face when you look at her and there is absolutely no sign of age

Absolutely, There no extra work done apart from whatever I have mentioned. I hope the service cost doesn't differ location to location for Mopar.

What was amazing during the 2nd service was that it took them less than 5 hours to service my car with all the work done as mentioned. Since their washing bay wasn't working the same was not done.

Even mine has a difference of 5-6 months but it was shipped from factory after my booking. So, we can't conclude that its a display/test drive car based on the gap between Manufacturing / Registration date.

Thanks a lot for your very kind words.

As far as I know the service charges will be same across all cities. Even if there is a difference, it will be minimal.

It is strange that you paid more for just the standard work. Also, for the 15Kms/1 year servicing the labour cost (4K approx) is free if done within the schedule period.

Yet another detailed and well documented post; hats off to you anna. This comes as a myth buster too as it proves that owning a Jeep is not an expensive affair. Liked the fact that you are old school in keeping the mileage notes. But would suggest you give Fuelio app a try. It's quite convenient and simple.
