Rough transmission .
Doors are not adjusted perfectly therefore paint is chipped.
Tailgate misaligned.
Roof is misaligned and lots of rattles.
Broken and misaligned inside plastics.
Unresponsive key remote at times.
Misaligned rear bumper.
Plastic seals around windows aren't properly installed , therefore useless.
And lots more stuff
That does suck!

Re: If your 8spd trans is rough, put your hand up

I'm sure a software update will be out for you V-6 owners that have a rough trans. The trans is really the same unit as the V-8 models but just rated for less torque and its built by chrysler but its still a zf design. As I posted on here before you can have the best tranmission in the world but its not calibrated right it won't be worth a crap. On the V-8 they seem to have it calibrated fairly good but it seems the v-6 owners seem to have most of the complaints. You probably just need to be patient.

Will indicated that it was such a small number of transmission affected that no one was working on the issue. Asking for patience on an issue no one is working on and dealers are telling people the transmission is working normally seems silly.

I bet a lot of the dealers are just verbally telling people that's just the way the 8spds are and sending people on their way and its not getting documented so those numbers may be distorted. Just my opinion.

I didn't say they were not working on anything... I do believe it is on the radar. Read back a few posts, Jacko is an engineer and he is giving good advice.

You guys asked for an answer and a fix more quickly. I gave you everything you need to make that happen. It has been reported problems have existed but be one of those people who does not accept "normal" as an answer and I promise you it will be fixed.

Forget what the dealers tell you. The standard answer from any dealer I have ever dealt with is we have never seen that problem before. It a joke to even ask . You can bet they are working on refining the shift strategy.

Just curious did these trans shifting problems start up suddenly and was fine when you first got truck or did you had bad shifting from the beginning?

Re: If your 8spd trans is rough, put your hand up

Driving around this morning, I was able to figure out a pattern.

If you let off the accelarator at 20 mph (5th gear) you feel a heavy downshift to 4. That same thing happens at 15 mph when shifting into 3rd. This is in both regular and Eco mode.

The only way you feel a smooth tranny in this car is flooring it off the line and then slowing down very quickly. When you slow down quickly, it skips the shift points as mentioned above. Doesn't make much sense, but this has been happening from day one.

Will be bringing it into the shop next week for this and a number of other problems.

Well this is something. You should see if a new one on the lot does the same thing or not.
