I just bought a 2012 Jeep Compass lattitude, 4x4, 2.4L. It has the CVT Transmission in it. Only 350 miles on it so far. I am loving it, however I am a little concerned about the noise it makes when I first start it up. I am not sure if it is engine noise or the transmission making the noise. I suspect its the transmission. Its kind of hard to explain but the noise doesn't really sound like anything is wrong, it sounds like normal transmission noises, just much louder. After driving for about 1-2 minutes there are no sounds and the jeep is just as quiet as can be. It does this every single time. It shifts perfectly, even when cold. When I start it up its doesn't make the noise until I shift it into gear, which makes me think its the tranny. Is this normal? Is it just something the CVT does to warm up or something? I am thinking about taking it to the dealer but I have a feeling they are just going to tell me its normal. Plus I would have to let it sit there for at least 3 or 4 hours for it to make the noise. Wanted to see if anyone else with the same vehicle has experienced this and what you Jeep experts out there think.
