I'm up to about 85000kms on mine or about 53000 miles. Did all the brakes and new tires this year.

Oh and a little more info on my dads compass. Its a 2008 limited I believe. (Im up at school otherwise I would go check) Maintenance wise I know he has changed the breaks at least twice. His A/C compressor went out around 70k but that was covered by warranty, he has had TRE's replaced, Fuel pump replaced, and thats about it really besides typical preventative maintenance. Oh also his horn no longer works, and his driver side low beam doesnt work. Other than that good shape

Outside of the A/C compressor and fuel pump that sounds pretty standard. The Tie Rod Ends pre '09 didn't last too long, the brakes about 50K-60K, normal. Thanks for letting us know!

My 2007 Compass just passed 50,000... Had to replace tires due to road debris. just inspected and mechanic said I should be good till next year with original brakes. No failures or repairs other than some service bulletin/warranty stuff the dealer did ( software updates and a something in the steering column for the stability control system).

Tie rod ends are a Chrysler problem that I knew of going into this Patriot. Our first 2005 300 had to have them done at 55K. Other than that, the issues raised here are normal wear and tear items.

Just thought I'd throw an update in here. Haven't posted in a while.
-Sitting right on 75,000 miles
-Still on factory brakes
-Replaced lower ball joints at 47,000 miles
-Literally zero problems since the first mile (except for the ball joints of course)
-Gas mileage seems to be suffering a tad lately....may need a tune up

127,000 miles on my '09 Pat and just had first repair

Yup, rolled past 127,000 miles this week and just had my very first (non maintenance) repair. I broke a tire valve stem and had to pay $65.00 to get it replaced. Needless to say I am pretty happy with that. I do need to do the brakes for the first time but I am waiting until the weather warms up just a little more. Like previous poster, my mileage is mostly highway, all recommended maintenance has been done, and I run full synthetic oil. That's it, nothing special.

I am very happy with the Patriot and am looking to get a used Compass or Patriot for my teenage son for his first driver. I think it is a perfect "new driver" vehicle. Very safe, good in snow and rain, good gas mileage, and plenty of storage for when I get to send him off to college in a few years.

So far ive put about 8000 miles on my new compass. The mileage is almost always 20.5mpg. Hopefully this summer it will get better.

Update, About a month ago my dads MK blew its transmission right at approximately 190,000 Miles. Not bad. He ended up trading it in rather than fixing. That thing did pretty awesome for the amount of hard city driving he did.

Not quite sure, since I was away at school when it happened. He told me he put in in reverse, then a loud bang, and then it wouldn't move forward, or backwards.

108000 here on my 08 Compass. I drive a pretty rough road daily that is well known for trashing suspensions.

The following components replaced so far:

Front ball joints, lower control arms, inner and outer tie rod ends.

Rear upper and lower control arms and rear struts.

I am a really picky driver and most of the components were worn enough to add play or roll to the chassis that I noticed. Nothing except the ball joints were bad enough to keep it from passing inspection. All were covered under the extended warranty.

With the exception of the ball joints, this car has held up remarkably well.
