Default Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Hello,
We recently took a test drive of the automatic model of the compass. I found that, on disengaging the parking brake and slotting the gear into reverse, there was a slight jerk before the car started moving backward. The same goes for moving forward. Could this issue be specific to the test drive car, or is it prevalent in the other cars too? Please do throw some light on this.

This has not been my experience over the past year driving my Petrol AT.

So after FCA's and the dealer's bullying tactics, I reluctantly accepted the vehicle on 4th December 2018. But guess what...the vehicle broke down in the middle of traffic on 25th December at Nal Stop, Pune. The dealer visited me twice post that and today, on 7th Jan 2019, FCA personnel showed up, took some records and left.

I'm done putting my and my family's life in danger in that vehicle. The problem that started way back in Feb 2018 still persists, and honestly, the company still looks clueless. They even changed the transmission without my consent.
