I've not seen any evidence that the issue of oil burning is getting better or has changed at all. People with every model year through 2020 have reported it, to my recollection. Its a very small percentage of overall cars that have that problem but its not safe to say that any particular year is better or worse for it, I don't think.Also it seems some early year models of the new version 2.4L Compass have engine oil consumption issues that have been less of an issue with the 2019 and later years.
I have a 2018 Compass Trailhawk..,Really think it’s the best vehicle I’ve ever had... A bit sluggish however has all the bells and whistles .. Sporty and luxury all in one...When my lease expires I will purchase .. Almost 40k miles on it no issues.. No comparison to the limited...It's such a shame you guys don't get the diesel engine there. I love mine.
