Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

So I was toying around with the idea of doing a remap on the petrol automatic I have in hand as I mainly drive in the city and the lag is just awful. Friend suggested to speak to Code6 and seems they have done this for several Jeep Compass petrol automatic for improving the 'drivability' part of it in city and not outright max speed performance (which I really don't care for even in highways). Just a stage 1 remap upgrade is what I had in mind, which costs Rs. 28k. Any thoughts from anyone on this?

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

This is so true. I recently got the dreaded check engine light with the message 'service engine' in the dashboard message section. The next scheduled service is only by Oct end and I drove only 3k or so from the last service. When I went to Jeep, they asked me to change the 3 year old Amaron battery (the OEM Exide wasn't considered as good) for 9.5k including the exchange of old battery. Then they also asked me to change the spark plug which costed 4k. Funny thing is I already changed it 2 years back and as per them it got to be changed every 2 years regardless of the km driven (I hardly drew 6k on the previous set). Total BS according to me but since I was on warranty and since Dad uses this car a lot, didn't want to risk another check engine light or breakdown. So I had to go with it.

2) Battery- Compass batteries usually run out in 2 years
3) Insurance claims if any

You may also want to upgrade the halogen projectors to xenons, and change the OE Firestones post purchase. Ensure that you have extended warranty, and you are set

I would be very interested in finding out the results in detail from the customers who've got it done.
What exacty did Code6 say will feel different in a stage 1 remap for the compass? and reliability concerns if any?

Perhaps you could request they get you in touch with some of their customers and you can get feedback first hand.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Just to add, I did the HID update as well on the headlight. Was definitely worth it. The installers actually messed up the focus initially and didn't close the cap well enough. So there was bit of moisture in it more than normal. Went back to them later and they fixed the cap but messed up the focus even more! Finally went to an MRF company outlet that has services such as wheel alignment, suspension check and headlamp alignment as well. Since they use proper equipment for measuring focus (and not standing in front of the car to see if the headlamp is focused on their zipper!), the final result was nothing short of amazing. So look for a good installer and go ahead.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Good point. Let me check with them but I doubt they will do it citing customer privacy. Anyway worth a shot.
They said that the torque will come in at an earlier stage instead of waiting for the rev to cross 2k plus. Sounds good theoretically but not sure in real practice. This would improve drivability and mileage as per them. And no impact on engine as this not straining the engine or gear box with max speed but just to ensure that it's serviced on regular intervals.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

I am on the lookout for a used Compass Petrol AT. This will be for my wife and the running will be barely 1000kms per month city use only. Hence Diesel is out of question.

I have shortlisted two used ones. Both are pre-facelift -
2020, 12k run, in warranty, Quoted 21L
2019, 45k run, Quoted 19L
Both are top end petrol automatics [Limited plus]

Test drove both the cars and both are quite good. The 2020 one obviously is little better since its less run and feels more "newish". But my confusion is what is a fair price for a used Compass Petrol AT? I see a lot of ads quoted much lesser 12-14L range (obviously they are lower variants as well - manual, sport, longitude etc). Can someone who has bought a used compass recently or gone through the grind please help me with how much should I try to lock in the deal at?

Also, the dealer said the warranty can be extended before it ends. Is this true?

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

In Dec 2021, I bought a July 2018 Petrol AT Limited (O) that had done 6,500 KMs. Paid 19L for it. I do not know whether this was par or more than market price, but now you have one transaction reference point. I bought from a dealer who is a close friend and I trust. So I am assuming it was an OK price to pay.

I am not sure about the warranty since the previous owner had not bought it.

I checked out a few in the last week in Mumbai. 2018 Limited Plus single owned cars are going between 15-16.5L, and 2019 out of warranty ones between 16-17L. If the cars have warranty then you could consider spending upwards of 17L, else keep that as your cap. Non-sunroof versions are going for 11.5-14L for 2017-2019 pre FL ones.

Let me offer some insight. I sold my well maintained 2018 Limited petrol AT (which had run 23k and was relatively under-equipped than current models) last year to Spinny for around 15.3 lakhs. New tires, new battery, ceramic coated and with extended warranty. Spinny in turn put that out for sale on their platform for 16.5 lakhs, and it got sold in a week.
Botoomline- well maintained Compass petrol models have decent resale value

Congratulations mate! As a potential Bengaluru customer in future, will you be able to let me know some more details like:
a) which dealer you went with? Will you recommend the same based on your experience thus far?
b) did not explicitly find it, but I assume the 2022/2023 petrol models now have cruise control too?
c) how long was the waiting time?
Thanks in advance.

I went with KHT Domlur and would recommend them based on my experience with sales and service so far. My AT petrol does have cruise control and there was no waiting period. I wanted black and they provided a pre delivery inspection and closed the sale.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

I live in Delhi and find so many Jeep Compass Petrol AT available in used car market, most of them have done between 20-30Km. Does Compass start giving troubles?

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Jeep Compass petrol engine discontinued; no replacement in sight.

The Compass Trailhawk has also been taken off the shelves; petrol power unlikely to make a comeback before next-gen Compass due in 2026.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

So a new issue popped up. We have a Compass Petrol Automatic that ran 32,500 km which is used by dad. Apparently dad didn't change the oil from last service back in 2021, he said he didn't do that since the car drew just 4,500 km in the past 2 years. Now he had an accident recently and had to change the headlamps, windshield, bonnet, bumper and such but I understand nothing with the engine (total cost came to 7 lakh which we got claimed through insurance).
However, when I drew the car back after finishing the formalities, the oil check warning light popped up. When I went back they said the oil is old and bad since we didn't change for 2 years and need to do that immediately which I had agreed (oil + oil filter). But even after that, the warning did not go. Then they tried a software update but no luck. Finally they check the 'Oil pressure switch' and said they need to see if that need to be replaced (costs around 14k) but will first check if there is any faulty wiring before making the order.

The wiring makes sense if rats or anything bit it (not sure if the accident has any relation to this) but found it hard to believe that something like an oil pressure switch can get spoiled with a car that had run just 32,500 km. Not sure if the 'bad' oil spoiled it.

Just mentioning it here (along with the Jeep Compass thread) to get thoughts from anyone.
