Similar for the torque.
Possibly the 'Power 0' value is for the stock run, and 'Power 1' is for the dyno run with RaceDynamics tuning box attached.

A little googling reveals that although drivetrain loss percentages vary from car to car, a 15-20% loss is par for the course. And since the dyno results shared in the post show measured output at the wheels, seems okay. Sad, but okay.

- service package covering 6 services (including the first at 5k kms) upto 75,000 kms or 5 years; whichever is earlier.

Congratulations on the new Compass And wish you many happy miles with it.

The Jeep guys did get back to my Uncle on the topic of this Extended Warranty and Service Package and the answer is not a good one for existing owners. There is no such offer or package on sale for existing owners as of now and the this offer only applies to those buying the Compass now...

Thank you for the wishes!

I wouldn't think that this package is not available to existing buyers. My SA told me that I can buy it anytime before the 5k / 6 month time frame to save on the first service checkup cost. I decided to wrap up all transactions on purchase so went for it now.

Maybe your dealer is trying to make some extra bucks on the first service. Did you check with Jeep India? Would suggest to get an official reply from Jeep.

This is the same message I was given - the 50k 4th and 5th year warranty is only for customers who booked/bought the car in July. This offer replaces the month-of-June offer of pay-75k-to-upgrade-to-AWD.

Existing customers do not get this extended warranty special offer. I was told that they are waiting to hear from the company on extended warranties for older customers.

1.5 Lakh KMs and 5 Years warranty is really a confidence booster after hearing those initial niggles

If so can you share it here.
Sorry no luck! I tried the service center but either they too had no idea or didn't want to disclose.

Looks like Compass did well in these tests. A real confidence booster, knowing that your vehicle will behave properly in extreme lane change manoeuvers.

Definitely performs well in fast lane changes, I had an experience at the NH near Chavakkad (Kerala) when a bus decided to practice ballet in front of me and I turned hard to get me and the jeep out of that bus' way.. scary when I think about it now.

Buying such a nice car and then ruining its looks by fitting such cheap, ill-fitting curtains

I got a feedback call from Jeep India regarding vehicle performance and whether you aware of all the features. A day after that, got a call from KHT motors asking whether all the features were explained. I said yes. But he still insisted that he would come to my place, take a picture of me and the vehicle along with my signature on some form and submit it to Jeep India. Has anyone else got such calls recently?

Not that I know off. Looks like FCA is on a customer service mission. Way to go FCA.

Hope it stays consistent with their service also, and not just a one off,after the sale kind of call.

Anyways, tell them that curtains ( GTO's post) are missing on your Compass.:

If the cherokee trailhawk comes to India, what its price should be? I found it to be very competent in whatever videos I watched on You Tube.
