Hey didnt have any problems with it till I got new tires ,would have done the work myself but wife didnt have a couple of weeks not to drive the compass , turns out chrysler didnt tork the front suspansion and they have a service buliten , gonna sue the dealer to get my cash back,sold me a faulty product ,and they new about the problem, should have been a 6 instead of a 9 on the previous post , think I had 54000 then have 65000 just rounded off , Im a tradesman not good at writeing or typing, thing is I have never seen a suspension in this bad of shape ,ball joints were disinergrated, my 94 cherokee has had a water pump go bad and last fall the altinator locked up .

We've heard SEVERAL stories about the Tie Rods, Rack/Pinion and other front end components not being properly torqued. Very disappointing to say the least.
