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.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Rated 5 stars! The reliability and poor fuel efficiency made me say no to the Petrol AT. Otherwise, it's one heck of a vehicle. Loved it!
That said, I'd definitely buy the diesel. When is the AT coming??

Over the past 10,000 km or so, about 10 kmpl. This is probably 50:50 highway and city traffic, with climate control on 100% of the time.



These days if I drive carefully without accelerating too hard, I can keep it around 11.



On highways, easily 12-13. More if driving sedately.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

The engine/transmission/features of the Compass are a bit confusing. Can one buy a petrol manual in Limited trim (lower trims don't have six airbags)? Failing this, can one buy a petrol automatic with six airbags?

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Also wanted to know what is the typical full service cost for the auto variant? Are we looking at 8k to 10k range or even more?

Hormazd has posted the test run of the Trailhawk on Instagram. The car has insane off-road capabilities by the look of it :

for both auto and manual typical service cost between 12-15k per service. 4 year service is slightly costlier.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

Saw this mentioned in the KIA Thread - https://www.rushlane.com/jeep-compas...-12323764.html

I had the same issue with the Compass in Mumbai, with multiple visits to the dealer and getting in touch with FCA. The car is giving 5 milage in normal driving and they refused to accept this is an issue. I wonder if I should start a new thread and put pressure on FCA.

Also but OT but there should be some kind of PIL against ARAI for giving some real insane and unrealistic milage figures for most cars. Even the Indian KONA is rated (and advertised) with much higher range than same car has been rated by agencies abroad, this would be a much bigger issues in case of EVs where you might be left in lurch. As a Government of Indian institution it's the agency's job to protect interest of consumers and it's failed to do that.

Re: Jeep Compass Petrol AT : Official Review

The Compass petrol is capable of decent efficiency so long you drive it keeping in mind turbo petrol engine characteristics. Here is my car's fuel efficiency stats ever since i got delivery.
I am not what you would call a sedate driver. But i do use momentum well.

Do you use some kind of automated tool to create this chart ?

Or just religiously note down kmpl figures every time you refuel?

Answer to all your questions:

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shift...er-tool-3.html (Car Expense Tracker Tool)

Just use one of those fuel logging apps.
