Grinding noise when turning in cold weather (-25 C)
I took my 2007 Compass to the dealership two weeks ago because I am getting a grinding noise while turning sharp. They said that it is a common issue with this type of vehicle and that there currently is not a fix for it.
The noise exists from last winter, and no solution from Chrysler
Anyone else having this probem...if so what have you done??

Is it a grinding noise, or a loud whine? Our power steering pump apparently has a hole in it. It's internal, and no fluid is ending up on the ground - but it's causing air to get in there and cause the noise.
Is it a grinding noise , the noise not exsist up to temp -15 , when its colder the noise exsist and stay , the dealership has more of 15 cars with this simptoms all car on base compass\patriot \caliber
Which Dealership did you go?
I brought my compass to dealership on Waverley today.
The guy from dealership said the same thing for the noise too, he also said that is a know issue from CVT.
i have an unrelated question. Do you know how to align headlamp on compass?
I cannot find/locate the slignment screw to adjust the headlamp.
Loud grinding noise while turning sharply in -25C weather
I too own a 2008 Jeep Compass and I'm getting a grinding sound while turning
sharply and accelerating at the same time. There is no noise really if you just turn slowly. The noise is very loud and worrysome when accelerating through the sharp turn and while the temp is in the -20C or 0-5 degrees farenheit.
Also, after driving more than 5 miles, the noise diminished and eventually dissapeared just as I had the dealer took it for a road check. ?!#%
Will I have to live with this situation or is there a fix to the problem? If not
does this noise create permanent damage or extra wear and tear that may
warrant a recall or something?
Today it is not so cold, only -10,
I was driving this morning, and there is a noise coming from both sides of the car. I think the noise comes from suspension and not from CVT ; it happens only in the sharp turn + acceleration. In my case the noise doesn’t disappear after 25 min of driving. I have not found yet any recall in the internet.
I really hesitate to ask this because you all have probably already checked for ice/snow/sludge build up in the fender well (fenderbergs). That's the only time that I get any noises when turning and it's cold.
A little side note on snow accumulation. This will usually happen when parked over night with a heavy snow or you plow threw a snow drift or some such thing, but if you get snow packed in your wheels you can really end up with some out of balance, lumpy, bumpy ride conditions. Fortunately my long handled ice scrapper fits in the slots in the wheels.
