Yes, IMHO I do believe there will be some updates to shift patterns for both. But as Bill very cleverly pointed out, that is not a fast fix. It will involve work from both ZF and Chrysler and sadly will take "a little while". Really my comment in the prior post can apply to both transmissions though the 845RE has some different problems.

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

You guys mention contacting Jeep. Everytime I have tried to do that I get put on hold listen to music that cuts out and they call my dealer. Am I calling the wrong number ? If so advise.

The one time I had to call Chrysler my dealership actually told me to call them because the dealership had no way to get the back ordered part 2014 overland headlight assembly with in a reasonable time. My service department ended up calling me back a few days later wanting to know when I could come in to have them install it. I was impressed so I guess it helps to call Chrysler I think I got their number from their website.

I think you might be. Whenever I call jeep cares you just follow to the last prompt and to give them credit they always pick up right away. You might be on hold waiting as I bitch at them on the other line for a half hour hahah.

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

Just want to throw this tidbit into the mix. My '08 Buick Enclave had a really crappy shifting tranny. There were three separate flash updates for it in the first two years. The first didn't help much, the second one was a great improvement, and my service manager recommended that I pass on the third, so I did. I always got good service at that dealer, so I took his word for it. The first reflash took a year from the time I bought the vehicle and it was pretty much a fail, but a couple of months later the second reflash really worked well. So, I would say if your problem is just some less than smooth shifting, be patient. If the shifting is atrocious, bitch like hell to anyone who might be able to help at Jeep and Chrysler. I can also say a JGC V6 that shifts like mine is a joy to drive, so I know JNAP can put together a great vehicle.

Thanks Will, but no thanks! After being retired for the better part of three years I've decided this is the only occupation I was ever really suited for.

It took you how long to decide that? You must be a slow learner.

I actually made that decision floating out to my car in the company parking lot on my last day of work!

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

I am just curious - I have the v6.. and i have noticed on occasion a slightly harder shift - or a downshift that gives a little lurch. Nothing bad or horrible or loud or made me say "what the @*#&!?" lol. Not like my 2011 which on occasion would shift so loud and hard that my wife would ask what the hell i just did and dont mess around! lol

am i lucky? or is this really limited to a smaller group.?

520 miles on it
