Rattle!!!

I have a black limited compass which I really like. About the only thing that really annoys me is I have a rattle coming from the back of the vehicle that is a pain. I believe it is the cover lid for the spare tire. Not sure but I think that is where it is coming from. Anyone else having this?? Other than that I like my compass very much. I bought it mostly for the gas mileage and having owned a 2004 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab prior to this the gassmileage is wonderful!! I seem to have a small issue with the defrosters.......seems the windows on a real cold day are a little hard to clear up. Not sure what that is.....will have the dealer look at it. I think Jeep should consider a very small V6 in this car for performance as an option.

I sometimes have a rattle back there too. I also carry my lunch box back there and a good sized ice scraper. Sometimes it rattles and sometimes not. Hard to do the locating when your the only one in it. Very intermittent. I've also noticed in this cold weather that the rear sub-woofer, on occasion, on certain songs, vibrates the side panel. It's not because of volume, that's turned down, I do think that it's because of really cold plastic!

and to the group!

something seems to rattle sometimes back there on mine also, only when it is really really cold out though, so i'm guessing its the coldness

Same with ours. Sounds like the spare tire is rattling around. Too cold and snowy to check it out right now. If anyone finds out what is causing the noise I hope they post what it is.

i think mine was coming from the removable "floor" that you lift up to get to the spare, i lifted it up shifted some stuff around that i had stored underneath with the spare and slammed it back down, didnt hear anything the next day after doing this......................when i get out of work in the am, its like 12 degrees out so everything needs a little time to heat up, my subaru made some weird noises also, until stuff got heated up, i'd say it is nothing serious at all, just the severe cold

That's what I was thinking. Time will tell.

My biggest complaint is the plastic trim on the left of the driver seat. It has a point on the very end of it that catches my big ole foot everytime I get out. I have darn near ripped it off and it cut my wife's leg! Also, ours does not have a compass either. I mean really, no compass? Come on.

Speaking of sharp edges, the spoiler-like thing above the rear window has a VERY sharp edge on it.

I learned this about a week ago when I was using a chamois to dry it off at the carwash...fortunately the damage was just a small nick to one of my fingers, which has already healed.

It was irritating, but I guess I overlooked it in my happiness over finally getting a warm-ish spell of weather. Finally got to wash off all of the road salt and grime!

I have no problem with the Compass, and see it as a cool new member to the Jeep family. It's brand new, so I'm sure once all the little quirks are worked out of it it will gain it's own respect over time.

I like the Jeep but have one small complaint.

I find when i open the door it really takes off so to speak. Most rigs the when you first open the door it opens quarter of the way then you need to put a little effort to get it to go further. I find mine takes off and swings open. Really need to watch it in parking lots!

Have you had the dealer check it out, and have you checked other Compasses on the dealer's lot? I wonder if the hinge needs an adjustment. Mine has definite "stops" built into it at a couple of points in its range of motion.

Yeah the door swinging open wildly is an issue the dealer can fix. That should not happen.

The rear seat head rests are very difficult to see around, they take up a large part of the viewing area, its almost dangerous the way they cause a blindspot. Most of the time we have the rear seats folded down to avoid this.
