-Rough shifting -Skipping 2nd gear when slowing down, done to address a design flaw They replaced the Powertrain control module on the first visit, then updated the programming on the next two visits. They ultimately shared it is performing as designed. Not sure I agree with their assessment. Essentially I need a new transmission which they are unwilling to do so need to live with the lurching and jerking until I can replace the vehicle.

Battery replaced. Problem is not with the battery. The alternator CANNOT charge full capacity for a very long time after Cranking engine. It loses .3 volts every crank. When the Jeep sits for a length of time, it will self charge up. Due to the differences in Alternators for this Jeep, there are some questions as to which is the proper replacement and if this will truly fix the problem.

May 2017

Transmission driveability issues never resolved. Minimal engine braking, some hard shifts, sometimes holds a gear far too long. I had to take the vehicle in 3 times for a "shifter error", which was still happening off and on until I traded the vehicle. The shifter error did seem to be just that, a problem with the shifter electronics or shifter connections as it never affected trans operation. It was a real pain though as an error pops up in the DIC and you have to pull over and turn the vehicle on and off to clear or just keep driving with a useless information cluster until that is done.
