ya when i test drove the auto transmission it seemed to be a little sluggish unless i used the auto stick. It was a 2.0 ltr engine and the ac was on. i know that the 2.4 adds extra torque and about 20 more horses but can you feel the difference? im in the usa and i havent heard of the 1000 rebate for the smaller engine. it doesnt seem like it would be enough anyway if i would be happier with the bigger engine right? :lol: btw thanks for replying photecs your the only one who has so farphotecs said:Not sure where you live, but in Ontario, the optional 2.0 engine has a government rebate of $1000. You get it a few months after you've bought the car. A few people look just for that alone, because it's just more money they get off the purchase really...
I have the compass with the 2.4, and i REALLY don't think the smaller engine cuts it. For a 4 cyl engine, that's also a decent size - you need that extra bit of power that the 2.4 L provides.
The 2.0L also has to work a little harder because it's a smaller engine pushing the same size car - so gas comsumption isn't all that much better.
Actually, the Jeep Compass, 2.0 and 2.4L are on the ecoCanada list, but it's up to a 6-month waiting period to receive the $1000 rebate. I'm still waiting on mine. I had sent it in months ago now.photecs said:Not sure where you live, but in Ontario, the optional 2.0 engine has a government rebate of $1000. You get it a few months after you've bought the car.
