2014 Grand Cherokee V-6 Transmission Failure...Again!

At 41,000 the Jeep dealer replaced the transmission valve body. The car was in the shop for nine days. Now, 2,600 miles and 90 days later, the same failure has occurred. The transmission is stuck in third gear and doesn't respond to my attempts to switch between D and S or manually shift up or down.

In the last few days, shifts from 1 to 2 and upward became brutal. Today a message appeared on the VIC: ACC/FCC blah, blah, blah, and the amber engine light came on.

Back to the dealer tomorrow. I'll drive my reliable 2007 Subaru Outback 3.0 R LLBean edition.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee V-6 Transmission Failure...Again!

Sorry to hear...I feel your pain.



I've owned two 2014 V6 4x4 Grand Cherokees (Limited, Overland), and both had transmission issues. Multiple reflashes on both, but nothing cured the rough downshifts.

Got tired of taking them to the dealership for work, and dealing with the ineffective Chrysler Customer Care group..I even got in touch with an attorney. Fed-up...I finally just traded in my Overland for another vehicle.

Goodbye Jeep forever.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee V-6 Transmission Failure...Again!

I have an April 2013 build as well. Had a couple of rough shifting issues with mine that were fixed with the adaptive relearn process. Been shifting great ever since.

On the early builds there's really nothing to base any kind of permanent fix on... either you have a good tranny or not, or one of the fixes takes care of it or not. Crazy but true.
