Folks i bought 2007 Jeep Compass Sport in 2013.
I am wondering if anybody knows is this will vehicle AWD, means when it runs regularly without activating it 4WD, does it sends power to back wheel when it feels slip on back end?
I am also wondering which Engine oil is good for This jeep year and model? 0W20, 5w20 or 5w30?
Thanks!

It is awd, it will send power to the back if the front wheels slip, or under heavy acceleration. It does not require slippage to send power to the rear tires.

You can "lock" it in 4x4 which will tell the jeep you want a 50/50 split front and rear for power, you can do this on any surface, as the computer will unlock the rear tires for turning around corners so binding does not happen.

I run 5w 20 synthetic oil in my compass and it works great, I think 5w 20 us the factory recommended oil.
