I took the car back saying I'll check it once again and then go back (if it's indeed damaged, I'll go to Jeep itself to get it, not sure of non OEM parts)
I got this replaced recently, there was a crack on this C-Mount. Yes, it costs around 14K. If there is any damage then better to get this replaced.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

The MultiAir in your Compass is very similar to the one in the Tjet and has very similar mounts to mine. I had to recently replace all 3 of mine even though the car drove fine except for a mild vibration through the steering at idle.

On inspection we found that the rubber in the gearbox mount had completely sheared off, the hydraulic mount was leaking slightly and the rubber in the 3rd mount had cracks. The difference post replacement is nothing short of dramatic when it comes to noise and vibration so please do check the other mounts carefully.

And yeah, Stellantis parts aren't cheap.

I also had to get Engine C mount replaced in my 2017 Compass petrol AT recently in May. Around 14K is correct.

It was causing clunking sounds in reverse and 1st gear - Seems to be a
common problem in Compass ATs?

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Hey esteemed members, I am looking at a used 2021 jeep compass 1.4 model S (in company warranty and low run <20k). The price is a few lakhs more than a new taigun 1.5 dsg top model (or any other new comparable car).

Does makes sense to buy for my usecase or from a financial pov? Listed my requirements here - https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/suvs-...ml#post5627420 (Is the Jeep Compass 1.4 DCT a capable city car?)

I got a chance to drive the compass petrol dct yesterday. It felt *significantly* heavy compared to my polo gt 1.2 and the engine started with a diesel like shudder that shook the entire front of the car. The engine did settle down and no vibrations thereafter except when pushing the engine to a high rpm (>4k). I havenít seen that on any of the VW turbo petrols - is this normal for the 1.4 multiair?

The engine did feel like it was lacking punch and felt very very sluggish at low rpms. But the suspension and ride was amazing, significantly better than the polo over bumps and breakers. The car did not really feel Ďfun to driveí in the city compared to instant power available on the polo gt tsi 1.2.

Very confused and seeking bhpian opinions here

I've the same Compass (model, variant, year of manufacturing and odo reading). There's no shudder when starting and at idle it is barely audible. Infact couple of times, I've parked the car and left for errands only to find out later that the engine is still running.

However, if the car is not used in a while, and the battery charge is less, it starts with a shudder. The lower the charge, the higher the noise and shudder at the time of starting.

Just a stage 1 remap upgrade is what I had in mind, which costs Rs. 28k. Any thoughts from anyone on this?
So did you finally go for it? Am toying with the same idea for the exact same reason. Need a better torque curve. Am totally fine with the existing power. Not getting much feedback on Petrol AT.

Not yet. Will be planning to do this around March or April, have some other expenses saved up for my other car :-)

Yeah the power is fine but its the low end pickup that I wish was improved. Hopefully they get to do that correctly. Which are the tuners you have at your place?

Have Code6 option via Autopsyche. Am also considering Wolf Moto when they visit delhi next. But no reviews for Petrol AT anywhere for any of them.

Yeah the same problem I face as well. The wolf moto guy said that it would cost around 30k but we would get around 20% increase only as the gearbox is tuned towards milage. Not sure how accurate it is though but he didn't push me to go for it unlike the Code6 guy that said I'll feel a huge diff it seems.

I have a 1.4 Multiair manual. The shudder is definitely not normal. if there is one good thing about the 1.4 Multiair it is the refinement. Like someone else already mentioned, it is likely to be the battery. I have recently gone through a dead battery experience. In the few weeks before the original battery died, the car used start with so much of shaking that I had thought something is wrong with the engine mounts. The shudder completely disappeared after the battery was replaced.

Yeah. But unfortunately have not been able to find out from anyone who has actually tuned via Wolf or via Code6. I had posted in the other thread on Tuning too, but nothing there. I guess people maybe be ok with the performance and thatís why no feedback on TBHP yet.

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 got a service history checked of a corporate-owned JC Petrol AT Longitude 2021 model driven only 16k km. I haven't driven it yet. The history says there was an insurance claim made 2 years ago at 6k km. The left fender and left doors were affected and were repaired at the service center. Apart from that normal service at fixed intervals was carried out. I cannot retrieve the insurance claim reports to see what exactly was damaged but there were no mechanical repairs done. My priority is a safe car with a comfortable ride and performance in that order. Should I go ahead with it if the mechanic gives it a thumbs up? What problems should I expect and keep money aside for?

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Hi everyone, need help with my compass 1.4L multiair petrol with 7ddct automatic with 48000 on the odo. I abruptly got the Ďservice transmissioní message popped up, the vehicle now only runs in even gears and reverse, if at all odd gears are engaged, the vehicle jerks. I got the vehicle scanned at landmark jeep noida and suggest TCM replacement (worth over 2Lacs!!!), moreover they didnít share the scanning report with me, so I went to S.H motors noida sec16 who specializes in ECM etc repair and they scanned the car (report attached). The vehicle is currently parked with them. My concerns are:
1. Whether TCM actually requires replacement or can be repaired?
2. Is it something more than just an electronic component going bad or could be a hardware issue?
3. Could it be due to a throttle body issue which requires cleaning?

The noida workshop guy says that he will check the wiring at first and then proceed
