Re: 2014 Overland stuck in second gear after briefly accl and let off gas

Shoot I still have my 2000 maxima. 197,000 plus miles on it. It's my summer car till my dad gives me his 2010 Camaro in a few years. My '14 was also built in June but I only got 511 miles on mine. I have only driven in eco mode so far and mine only bothers me with a slow 1st to 2nd shift then the rest is butter. I read about all the troubles and hope once mine gets up in miles mine doesn't start having troubles.

I've had the same thing happen with a V8 '14.
Dunno what causes it but if you hit the gas hard, then almost immediately let off, it seems to downshift and then hold the lower gear longer than normal.

It will upshift after a bit, or you can just pull on the + paddle for about a minute.

Acts very similar to changing to sport mode when I do this.

For the most part my jeep shifts okay. When I first got it I babied it and hated how the transmission shifted but once I started driving it more normally the only time I hate the ECO mode is when I need to accelerate quickly. I kick off the ECO mode when I know I might have to accelerate quickly although in the situation I found myself I had not done so. I suspect even with ECO off I'd have still had that problem.

Thanks to all of you for your input, I really do appreciate it!
If this is an early V6, there is a TSB for a reflash of the transmission controller claimed to help with the rougher shifting on the V6 version of the 8 speed.
