10000 mi   Transmission jerking from acceleration and deceleration. 
2000   delayed down shifts and up shifts intermitantly

  Wife received Service 4WD Message. Dealer replaced 4WD transfer case control module. Tested another 160-170 miles and returned car to us as fixed, safe. Service 4WD Light on again. Car stereo/Nav was cutting out while driving back to dealer -- this is what happened when car first died. Car is still at dealer at this point, we are filing for Lemon buyback. 
2000   Dealer replaced Transfer Case and selector switch - something about clutches being too tight as determined by Chrysler STAR engineers. Vehicle has been as designed since then, but was in shop for a LONG time with this one. 
7000   Transmission shifting rough at times, felt like it was slipping at others. There is now a TSB out for this, but since Chrysler was buying it back and the dealer was 25 miles away, we just dealt with it until turn-in. 
8500   Transmission shifted rough, lagged, hesitated, slammed gears. TSB performed. 100% different vehicle after update. Corrected all issues. 
12300   Transmission reflash. Still needs work
