0 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 0 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. 
2000 0 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.
