CVT is not for lead foot drivers
By james on


2008 Jeep Compass Sport 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


The engine & CVT is set for max engine performance not gas guzzling. Applying gradual pressure to electronic speed control pedal will give you the best acceleration. From take-offs and passing you will notice a difference. And for added speed try running RPMs up and then back off a little on ESCP. This is an analog input devise with no direct connection to throtle valves. Work with on board computer not against it.

Best Features

Handling, turning radius, engine & trans-axle braking when set in low on slippery hill decents. sunroof, head and leg room, heated seats, standard stereo with big door speaker for resonable bass sound, panic brake assist, ETC, 4 wheel disc brakes

Worst Features

door arm rest padding, eliminate small squeak of cold brakes when backing up.
