Unhappy 2017 New Jeep Compass Latitude 4x4

I just got mine a few days ago I have noticed some strange idling movements coming from the car when it is parked and on and also is ess bad for your starter/vehicle in general it doesn't feel so good to hear it start and stop all the time. I also have been driving it on the highway most of the week and it's sitting at 22 MPGs I reset the Average MPGs when I got it a week ago how long should it take to get up to 25/30 MPGs

If it's idling rough or weird, take it back to the dealer. You have warranty, utilize it before it runs out!

The mpg is going to change as you drive it longer, do a proper break-in period and you should be getting much better mileage.

Just make sure that during the break in period you get the engine into the higher RPM range for short bursts, too many people don't push the engine hard enough and get problems down the road sooner than they should, burning oil being one of them.
