I have bought rented vehicles. However, they are typically sold with very low millage as well as approx. 2 years warranty still on them. They pretty all rent current year models. Hence you or the buyer has the comfort of knowing any issues will be covered other than electronics and options all of which should be still working include AC. A in depth check of all these just needs to be done.
Yes, there are many reported CVT issues. However, Chrysler would never admit there is a trend. There may be a TSB for dealer to get right to the fault to fix it. But certainly not a widespread problem. At that millage the CVT service is due which may correct the issue for you. (supposedly fluid and filter change, but you can ask your dealer what is done).
If you just got it the dealer should fix pre existing problems such as this. The certified dealer mentioned doesn't sound like a Chrysler dealer. There are protection laws but acting fast is key and check with those who know what to do. Waiting with end up with you paying the full bill.
PS: The Compass was built on a car platform with the same powertrain as the Caliber. You're is the 2nd generation where a lot of body appearance took place also engine model and transmission was slightly different I believe. But the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee are the true Jeep products
