Bought a 2014 Compass w/6spd in July for my wife. Only about 1000 miles but so far so good. I got the hand me down 2004 Liberty Sport. I've not driven the CVT trans model from earlier years so I really couldn't compare them. All seems to be well. Anything in particular to question on the new model?

Question why they didn't switch to that tranny sooner!

I personally would not buy one with a 2.0, not enough mpg gain for a huge drop in power...

Guess I should say my 2014 has a 2.4 L engine. And as for the mpg it's getting 24 combined and not nearly broken in.

Last Friday I took my 011 compass into the dealer for some work. To make a long story short, I walked out with a new 014 compass. I love it! It's the same model with the addition of the Bluetooth functionality. The interior is miles above the 011, and with 400 odd miles on it the new 6 speed is wonderful. It's seemingly peppier and the mileage appears to be around 24 vs 20 on the same exact trip.

Bought a '14 Compass Limited about a month ago. After spending about 6 months deciding what would work best for me, I was leaning toward the Compass; MPG got me. V8 gas is a little impractical for me at the moment. My Dad was in town and had a 2012 model with the variable shift tranny in it, and I about DIED when I took it around the block. I HATED IT. And was totally deflated. Decided to test drive the new 6-speed auto, and its like a completely different vehicle, omg. Love it. I freakin love my new car. Got a KILLER price, brand new, all upgrades available. Sunroof in white was a must. Everything else was negotiable, but had to sacrifice nothing. 18" powdercoat wheels, 9 speaker Boston Acoustic system, navigation, saddle LEATHER SEATS, bluetooth, rearview cam, thing is loaded. Had 16 miles on when I left the lot. Just under 500 now. I highly recommend the 2014 6-speed. Super good looking ride for low dollar. Both dealerships called them "mini Cherokees." Fair assumption.

I've had my 2014 Compass for 2 days now and love it! Mine is True Blue Limited with Gray interior. I test drove 2011 and hated the seats; so uncomfortable. These seats are awesome. So far I'm loving my new Compass.

Almost bought a prior year model at the beginning of 2013, but decided to wait for the new model with 6 speed transmission. Picked it up in April and I love it.

Just picked my 2014 compass up on 9-14 Sport in mineral grey with the 2.4 & 6 speed.I really like the shift points and responsiveness of the transmission.Comming from an 2008 A4 2.0T 6 speed auto, I feel no remorse in the driving experience.
