I'm impressed...29mpg on first tank...lifetime warranty... awd...for $15,999

we like our little jeep ...
we've owned a '91-'01(505hp/1032 rwhp)-'03 and '06 cummins
so this little compass is quite a change

we're impressed so far though ...

first post newbie question

any stickies on here for maintanence ...

oil pan drain plug torque specs ... helpfull hints for a guy that does ALL his own wrenching, other than what the warranty pays for

thanks

Hi and welcome! Sorry, no sticky on maintenance, you're the first to bring it up, good idea!

I know this covered in one of the 144 post in the "Oil" thread but it's easier to just repeat it.

Install oil pan drain plug and tighten drain plug to 40 N·m (30 ft. lbs.).

We've got some online Owners Manuals and Parts Books here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f98/quick-links-mks-off-road-tsbs-parts-books-much-more-519045/ but the Service Manuals are either on CD or hard copy and spendy.
