Thanks for the information.
My wife found a Compass on the dealer lot that had everything in it that she wanted, but it had the 2.0L in it. I expressed concerns about it not being a 2.4L. She took it for a test drive and was okay with the performance, so she bought it. She's had it now for almost two weeks and is very happy.
To me it seems okay. I'm not sure I like the CVT, but it's not mine and as long as momma's happy......I'm happy!
I don't know much of anything about these powertrains, but with a lifetime warranty I guess I shouldn't have any concerns, right?
