I'm supposed to pick up my new 2011 Compass Latitude tomorrow. I'm trading in my 2009 Compass Sport. The new one is silver with black interior , Sun/sound and the Off Road package. I will miss the 09 but I like the front end on the 11. The 09 only has 13,000 miles. If anyone is looking for a mint condition used 09 Compass let me know. I'll tell you where I traded it. Does anyone on here have the Freedom Drive II package. How does it differ from the I. Have there been any issue with that trans?

Thanks. It is so much nicer than my 2009. The ride is much better and it has less road noise. One thing i did notice though. and I saw this on one that I looked at on another dealers lot. The 2011's have a little bit of cushioning on the front door panels instead of the hard plastic like my 2009 had. Thsi is what I found today on mine on the passenger front door panel at the top and up front where there is a dip the soft toucj padding isn't sticking to the panel under it. I saw another one with black interior at another dealer and it had a bubble in a different spot. Has anyone else looked at their 2011 upper door panels. The glue they are using is not adhereing enough. I am going to call the plant tomorrow and try to get someone in QC and tell them they need to check with thier vendor for these panels. This is going to be an issue down the road. Especially with the hot weater around the country. I'll let you know if I get any feedback from the factory. I used to work for BMW for 22 years and when a car came off the truck with an issue and I called the port of entry they would act on problems and try to head them off before they got to the dealer. I don't know if Chrysler will be as receptive.

I have this problem on my drivers door, been trying to ignore it! Maybe i'll call the dealer, they're not too close and not too efficient though! :(
