Question about 2007 Jeep Compass Limited
I just got this jeep saturday night it is a 2007 with 26000 miles on it... when u press the gas to drive and you are drving and it states to shift on its on (automatic) it kinda slips into that next gear... u can feel it pull... so my questions are....is there alot of problems with this year make and model????? I have 3 days to trade it in for another kind of used car? This car is covered under factory warrenty until 36000 or one more year??? please let me know asap thanks
Quick check is to accellerate from a stop with steady even pressure on the gas. Watch the tach. It should have a good shift at approximately 2000 rpm and the tach should not jump higher during the actual shift (called flairing) This should be the same for each shift. Converter lockup (4th gear shift) should cause tach to drop about 500rpm and should happen at about 45mph. Then repeat the same process using a more agressive acceleration.
Shift points in rpms may be a bit higher but each shift should not flair. To check lockup, while driving at about 50mph, lightly touch brake pedal and you should feel ti disengage for a moment. Since you have an opportunity to return it, It would not be a bad idea to get a hands on evaluation from another shop you trust...I can't see it from here and a live person is better equipped to give an informed opinion.
