I think I remember reading somewhere that initially theCalibers did have an engine cover but they stopped making them with engine covers. Seems dumb to me! I'd assume it would be the same thing with the Compass. However if I remember correctly they were still going to make the Caliber R/T's with an engine cover and the R/T has the same 2.4L engine that is found in most Compass'.N.S.E.W. said:ok, so far we are impressed with the Compass for the price range and class of vehicle. We have noticed all of the concerns that have been mentioned on here, as well (ie the engine noise with CVT, ticking, etc)
there is one thing that hasn't sat well with me... the model we got didn't have an engine cover. This seemed rather odd, but the Salesperson said that they had one but they weren't done detailing the car as of yet. Then come Monday when we were to pick it up, he said they stopped making them. Funny, how drastically the story changed.
Are there any other 'engine cover-less' Compass' owners???
