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

I know they made some adjustments to the cvt for 2012 if that changes your decision on a used. I just got a 2012 FD1 manual. Getting 24 city, not light on the gas either.

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
