All of a sudden the car slowed down to 40mph. The failure mileage was 85,000. There was not even any warning lights on the dashboard and still aren't. Check also our 2008 Jeep Compass manual transmission catalog. Sometimes 1-2 times or 2-3 times.
While driving various speeds, the transmission overheat warning indicator illuminated suddenly. Due to the electrical short in the brake light module, it caused several additional wires to overheat and melt. While driving the vehicle to the dealership for repair, the brakes light failed to engage when the brake pedal was pushed as well as causing extremely poor performance from the transmission. Took it in first problem the alternator had it replace. He even tried to give it a little more gas but it still would not go any faster. This can be overridden with a release switch.

I thought we were going to be hit from behind. The radio and lights were still working but when I put my foot on the gas pedal I never moved. Buying a used 2008 Jeep Compass transmission from a non-reliable dealer is an unnecessary risk. We even turned the heat on as recommended in the manual but no luck. I had my Jeep tow 4 times.

The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the transmission was faulty and needed to be replaced. It sounded like it was in a lower gear and would not shift to a higher gear.

We opened the sun roof, rolled down the windows and turned off the ac.
