Hundreds of consumer complaints have been reported by those who drive or lease a 2018 Jeep Compass SUV. Many of these reports highlight a wide array of engine problems, especially engines that sputter, stall, or shut off completely while in motion. While six recalls have been issued by the manufacturer regarding this make and model, only one addresses an oil pump failure that may cause the engine to stall. However, many consumers have had the dealership replace the faulty oil pump and are still struggling with ongoing engine problems.
According to one driver, their 2018 Jeep Compass SUV began to stall while driving, even though the car had just been purchased. The engine runs so hot that the vehicle will simply stop driving, and the engine burns through transmission fluid, coolant, and oil at an alarming rate. Another driver described how the engine tends to randomly shut down due to low engine pressure. This has happened to this individual on three separate occasions, leaving her stranded while crossing a railroad track and putting her in danger. Similar complaints continue to pour in from consumers across the country as they await a clear solution or permanent fix.
