Welcome! My 2018 Compass with the ZF 9-spd automatic transmission made a grinding noise between 25-40MPH. I don't know if the noise was from the tranny or transfer case. My dealer did an update and that raised the noise up to around 50MPH where the road noise covered the sound. It was TSB08-095-18. See if your dealer knows anything about it.
