2012 owners: has the hemi shudder issue been resolved?

I'm getting ready to order a 2012 Overland and have been watching for any comments regarding the infamous hemi shudder. Can I assume from the lack of such comments so far that the issue has been resolved?

I also recall that some had problems with the QL system. Does anyone know if either the compressor or the control unit have been upgraded on the 2012s?

Thanks for your input.

I've only driven the 2012 limited hemi for a few hours and I haven't noticed any sort of shuddering or odd behaviour.

I've been driving my 2012 HEMI for 1100 miles with no shudder.

Picked up my V8 Overland last week. All works as it should. No shudder.

Re: 2012 owners: has the hemi shudder issue been resolved?

No changes to the QD for 2012, most problems were leaks that eventually lead to other issues.

TSB updates appear to have cleared the shudder for all years, but the transmission is still not the as smooth an operation as you may expect under some conditions and some modes that you probably wouldn't select in every day driving..

Are you for real? your car was made just last month and you have 10,000 miles on it??? WTF lol The average miles driven PER YEAR isnt much more than that!! How is it even possible to put that many miles on a car? haha

I think its safe to say you will certainly have the highest mileage WK2 in existance. If you keep that up your 2011 will have 120,000+ miles in 2012 LOL.

Re: 2012 owners: has the hemi shudder issue been resolved?

Thanks for your responses, everyone. Sounds like most of the first-year issues have been resolved. Glad I waited. Will order a 2012 Overland 4X4 soon.
