6000 mi CEL lit up on a cold dark night. Went to the dealer the next day. They said the transmission valve body needed to be replaced. Got car back 4 days later. Shifts much smoother. But transmission drain pan is leaking so I have to go back.

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.
