The DSG is in a class of its own. No other dual clutch system matches it when it comes to performance. ZF's have but not under all applications.

The engine on the Jeep is superb. It is the gearbox that kinda kills the experience.

I don't think it's been produced either. Not even there in Jeep's media fleet (we asked for it).

With paddle shifters, you don't have to take your hand off the steering wheel. Plus, it's more or less expected in premium cars (even the cheaper Civic had it way back in 2006!).

The engine contributes to the slow response times because of turbo lag.

Yes, you are correct. But currenly, FPT has sold all the contract rights to Schaeffler in marketing & selling to any one else worldwide. Recently, in an Industry conference here in Pune, Schaeffler was showcasing the MultiAir in hardware for OE customers!

It might not be available in the press fleet but they're being produced for sure and there are quite a few on the road.

I'm really disappointed with the Compass Petrol AT. The DCT isn't that great and we had almost bought one for my dad's close friend if not the gearbox didn't act as a fly in the ointment. So, we shifted the booking to a Limited 2.0D and bought her home a couple of days back and we're glad that we bought this over the AT.

I really had a lot of hopes with this DCT + turbocharged-petrol combo. I was really hoping something great as it has a whole lot of tech involved in it. Sadly, it disappointed us and IMO the 1.4 TJet is a lot involving to drive.

So, it's the diesel ONLY if it's a Compass and I'm eagerly waiting for the Diesel AT and hope that it's a good package and also hope that it's also available in the topend 4x4 trim.

Out of the 10389 Compasses sold so far only 1294 are petrol AT (assuming petrol MT is not available to buy). Which is nothing great.

I guess most are waiting for the Diesel AT. Any idea when that would be arriving?

I have test driven the petrol auto twice but did not find the gear indicator.That is surprising considering I can clearly see in the pics in this review.I could only see D and not D2/3 etc.

Do we need to activate that in settings?

If I remember correctly, it's in the screen settings, for the top middle portion.

Any update on this? Look's like the diesel AT is permanently delayed.
The last I read, the delay was being attributed to high demand of the manual variant but that is true even for the Nexon but Tata's are moving full steam ahead with the AMT.

I stand corrected. Deliveries for the petrol MT haven't begun. It's likely to begin soon, but there's no fixed date mentioned.

A friend of mine bought one to supplement his ageing BMW 320d

Likes - Performance despite the lag, the build and most of all the Android interface

Dislikes - only gets 5-6 km/l in town and 10km/l on the highway

Was going through the review again now that I have driven my Compass for around 1200 kms.

I have never had to manually disengage the electronic brake while starting the car or moving from P to D in a traffic signal.

As soon as you shift from P to D,the electronic brake automatically disengages

This only is an issue if you try to drive off without putting on the seatbelt - in that case the parking break will not release automatically. So it's actually a safety feature.

According to the mid grabs that I saw the car was giving about 6.89 to the litre?
Was that with spirited driving or were you guys going about it peacefully ?
If it was sedate driving , what kind of ARAI figure is 14kmpl?
Isn't 5-6 in the city really bad ?

Jeep's poor reliability will come back to bite it. I've posted about some niggles on the Compass Diesel review thread. Now, here is a Petrol AT customer who has had his gearbox replaced!! The car had just 2,000 km on the odo.

I have viewed the correspondence he's had with FCA India. The vehicle stalled 3 - 4 times on the road before the workshop took his complaints seriously. To the company's credit, they have offered him an extended warranty (2 years) + maintenance package + loaner car.
