Engine light does not come on and dealer isn't able to resolve as it happens randomly and they can't duplicate. Have u experienced this on your vehicle? Thanks

Friday Last week, I sent my vehicle to dealer for fixing. Actually, I booked this service on Monday and I reported the issues one of repair specialists who found quickly from their database that one of other owner suffered a similar issue with mine. They suggested a system update solution for him and also me as well.
After waiting over 1 hour, they brought my GC Limited 2015 V3.6 back. And I asked them if the problem has been fixed. They said we have completed the system update and inspected transmission which has all normal conditions. Then, I asked them again that if you guys had a test drive to see if the issues were still there. They said nope that I should test if myself.
Unfortunately, I have to say that this system update has only a little improve on shifting. My GC limited 2015 V3.6 has the shifting problem on the condition when you are starting from 1 at keeping low speed about 1800-2000 RPM the vehicle most of time would shift harshly to 2. This condition would largely happen while you drive in the downtown with high traffic density and also in scenario of parking your car. The feeling like the someone pushed the vehicle and sometimes you can hear a sound "dong" probably from transmission.
On the other hand, while I brake and deaccelerate the vehicle quickly I would have the harsh shifting from 4-3, 3-2, randomly. The experience was like if you were sitting in the car you could have a nod action when the car shifting from 4 down to 3 and 3 down to 2.
That were my whole experience so far. I am not sure what gonna do next honestly......
Let me guess, V6 engine? Very popular complaint with the V6 transmission...rough shifting, jerking.
Chrysler/Jeep has issued MANY transmission reflashes for this transmission, sometimes they only work for a bit...some have even had the transmission valve body replaced. Start with the dealership you bought the vehicle at, and if no luck...call Chrysler Customer Care and lodge a formal complaint, then if that doesn't work, get a lawyer.
I personally have a pending Lemon Law case on my 2014 GC Overland V6 because of all the transmission problems I've had to endure.
Yep, my NEW-PURCHASED Grand Cherokee Limited 2015 model is 3.6L Pentastar® V6 with new 8-speeds transmission. In fact, I have heard about that problem before but I guessed the new 8-speeds transmission should have no such issues at all.
Sadly, it's obviously not!!!
