Mine's fine, has the occasional clunk, but so did my 6spd in my Territory (both made by ZF). Considering how rare it is for me I haven't bothered to get the update, but my first service is due soon so will get it done anyway.

So this is for the diesel. I thought it was the 3.6L models that were suffering from all the tranny woes? Are they all fixed?

This is the tell-tale symptom that I saw when I first got "fish bites"... Aka "shudder" on upshifts especially during warmup.

Sounds like this may be THE FIX. Next they need to address the DEF/SCR issue that gives a P20EE code.

Re: 2014 CRD + 8-speed: MAJOR shift enhancements/improvements 08/27/14

Since I'm sitting in the dealer service shop with my ride in a bay, I requested the new TSB. We'll see if it changes anything on the way home....if I get to drive it home.

TSB applied. First impression...its smooth as butter but I'm sure it's relearning right now. Time will tell.

Downshift in ECO seem quicker, more like Sport mode with less bogging.

Shifts are less noticeable under light throttle.

At the dealer now having this applied. Came in for an oil change and was checking the forums while I waited. Perfect timing, thanks.

Will reply back later with impressions.

Re: 2014 CRD + 8-speed: MAJOR shift enhancements/improvements 08/27/14

Dramatic difference. Drove about 20 miles on a combination of back roads and freeway.

Kept the Jeep in Eco mode the entire time and it was perfect. I usually turn Eco off as soon as I turn the Jeep on. Power delivery was extremely linear and the throttle was very responsive. Previously (in Eco), I would hit the accelerator, count to 3 and then go from crawling to full on throttle.

Didn't notice any bogging which would occasionally happen at random times (needs more testing). The Jeep feels like a different SUV, in a good way. Very impressed thus far. I have a 6 hour drive to Jersey and the same trip back over the next few days. Will report back on how it goes.

Calling my dealer on Monday to make sure this update is applied to my car before I take delivery.

Will be interesting to see if they know about it.

Re: 2014 CRD + 8-speed: MAJOR shift enhancements/improvements 08/27/14

I know this TSB only refers to the V6, but what about some V8 love? I've posted about my issues before, and last time I was at the dealership I got that dreaded, "nope, everything's fine... haven't heard anything about that" response. I have an oil change scheduled for next week and don't see anything in the TSB section that I could take with me to give me that "smooth as butter" feeling.
'14, Limited, V8, ORII here. Love this Jeep more than any of my previous six GCs combined. If I could only get this issue resolved.
