8. 2010 Jeep Compass
The Toyota Corolla and Nissan Frontier may have suffered noteworthy quality declines but they still remained better than average in the 2013 Vehicle Dependability Study. Like these Japanese competitors, the Jeep Compass also took quite a tumble, but where it landed was far from the industry average. This compact SUV declined by 32 PP100, yielding a score of 178 problems per 100 vehicles. Ouch! It looks like the Compass is lost in the quality wilderness. Somebody give Jeep a map and directions.
