changed the cvt fluid in my 2007

So I finally got around to changing the tranny fluidin my 2007. It went very easy just like a regular tranny. I dropped the pan slowly to let it drain into a pan so I could measure it. I didn't spill one drop. I replaced the filter also easy just 3 bolts. Cleaned the 2 magnets in the pan, cleaned the gasket surfaces and reinstalled the pan. I measured exactly 5 1/2 qts. I poured it in, ran the car for 5 mins, shifted thru the gears a bunch of times and used the special OEM dipstickand graphand it was within spec.So I took it on a 5 min test drive. No unusual noises just nice and smooth. Check fluid level again and it rose a little from the heat and looked perfect. I don't see why people are so afraid to do this and pay extra from the dealership. Drove it to work tonight and drove mint. I only paid a total of $125 for the fluid and filter. I just love eBay and RockAuto.

The CVTs don't have filters you need to change?

Yes they do. Check out your 2012 Compass owner's manual and read the 64,000 and 120,000 mile services in the back under the maintenance schedules.

32 a gallon or 8 bucks a quart is what youll find on amazon. fluid and filter can be done for less than sixty bucks. my local jeep dealer wanted 120 a gallon lol when I laughed at them they said you don't have a choice, its a dealer only item, it was worth the 5 mile drive to go back and show them the amazon receipt. and don't waste money on their dipstick. use any dip stick on any of your other vehicles, just make sure it inserts all the way and bottoms out on the pan, all your interested in is the depth measurement from pan to fluid level on stick anywhere from 1.75 to 2 inches is fine or you can find there chart with temperature fluid depth graph.
