2008 patriot trans slip

Hey everyone I have an 08 patriot with what seems to be a trans slip. It's the 2.4L 4 cylinder. With CVT2 transmission I believe. 110k miles. Trans flushed at 100K. Shifts funny at lower speeds during acceleration. Any insight on what this could be?

I have a 2008 Compass with the CVT transmission and 65K on the odometer.

There was a couple of times recently when I was accelerating up a hill that I thought it was slipping because the RPMs suddenly went up high. This is a hill I go up from a stop light every night on the way home from work so I've experimented with it since and have determined that if I don't give it enough throttle, the transmission kicks into overdrive mode and tries to get it moving up the hill. The speed limit is only 30 MPH up the hill so I don't want to give it too much gas or else it picks up and quickly goes to 40mph.

My point is that from what I've read, this should be happening.

I've also read that your RPMs should not really go up but your speed will increase slowly in certain cases and this seems to be while on level roads.

These transmissions definately operate and feel different from the regular old auto transmission. I'm still getting used to how mine operates.

I get what your saying but, I'll be accelerating and my transmission will miss and subsequently the rpms will drop sharply, then catch and climb back up.

Hey billwoot,

Sorry to hear you are having issues with your vehicle. Have you had the concern inspected by your dealer?
