Jeep Compass Latitude 2014 with CVT trans . It was all running like brand new. Then all the sudden. I park the vehicle with 58,075 miles on a Friday. I don’t drive it till the following Monday morning. As soon as I turned it on check engine was on and when I went to shift it jumped crazy! It was like it couldn’t find what gear it was in very sad. Well it’s under Platinum Warranty! Yes! Wait a week for a tow and bam it’s at the dealership. “Transmission input sensor” I’ve changed many a transmission input sensors on other trans this should be a breeze. Parts on backorder One week later get the call 😞 “The part didn’t fix the transmission, we now will have to change the transmission” oh my my oh my oh my oh my. A rebuilt CVT for $100 hmmmmm should I be happy or scared. Does anyone else have a life curse or is it just me. Weird story right. ? Or is this normal ? 😂

The CVTs, generally speaking, have average service life. The problems people typically encounter with them are related to overheating, not failure of the entire unit.
The skill level of that dealership, as you've described it, is questionable because it sounds like they changed the sensor when there was nothing wrong with it. ie, change parts and hope it works rather than diagnosing. Also a week for a tow? That's 'platinum' warranty?
