Potential buyer

Need to upgrade my wife's ride, looking at a 2011 patriot or compass. Can anyone relay what kind of milege they are getting with the freedom drive 1 AWD and CVT tranny? Also a local Jeep dealer has an 2011 patriot sport 4X4 CVT for 18995 and a 2011 compass sport 4X4 CVT for 19995. Both with like 18000 on them, any thoughts what the out the door price could get down to? thanks

It was a full 305 miles trip to Virginia, did the trip in the summer and left in the morning, with no traffic, and no a/c. So pretty much the best conditions possible, doubt it would ever happen again or be close

'11 JKU, stock, but at least the interior is nice
'11 patriot, FDII S&S, convience group
