2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4dr SUV

290-horsepower 3.6L V6 8-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range

10000 mi Transmission jerking from acceleration and deceleration. 
2000 mi delayed down shifts and up shifts intermitantly 
12000 mi have had thump on start up which they didn't find however they did several flash "Upgrades", now the doors don't unlock properly and the alarm goes off if I unlatch at the tail gate. 
11000 mi Flashed TCM and updated software 
31000 mi Transmission was shifting hard when going from 8 to 7 and 6 gears. Dealer reflashed TCM, performed quicklearn. Issue seems to have gone. 
9000 mi Poor downshifts 
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 mi 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 mi 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 mi Transmission shifted rough, lagged, hesitated, slammed gears. TSB performed. 100% different vehicle after update. Corrected all issues. 
12300 mi Transmission reflash. Still needs work
