I have never owned a jeep before or any vehicle with a cvt transmission. My last vehicle was a Ford Ranger with a 5 speed automatic transmission.
I now have a automatic cvt jeep compass and it's a great car but when I release the gas the jeep slows down alot more then my ranger, almost like the engine or transmission is braking the car.
With my ranger if I released the gas, I could coast along, but in the compass if I release the gas I start slowing down immediately. Acceleration is sooooo smooth, I don't feel any shift shock at all, but when I release the accelerator I can feel the car slow down more quickly then I would like.
Is this normal? Anyone else with a cvt notice a quicker deceleration then their previous automatic vehicle?
Thanks for any input.
