jeep slowing down

Question---have a 2011 JGC with 31,000 miles and auto trans. Lately it seems that when you take your foot off the accelerator it seems to be slowing down by itself pretty significantly. Its almost like having a stick and dropping it into a lower gear and slowing down that way. Any suggestions? Thanks all in advance for your help

Re: jeep slowing doen

I noticed this too. I was not sure if it was normal or not.

Re: jeep slowing doen

I'll say that when it happens for me it is not that dramatic and I just attributed it to the 5 speed transmission.

Re: jeep slowing doen

Just got it back from the dealer. The code was a p0730 - incorrect gear ratio. They did a transmission service on it and couldn't recreate the problem. All covered under warranty. They suspect the fluid was a little low.

Re: jeep slowing doen

richp, when yours slowed down was it significant or subtle? It seems that mine is doing this as well, but it is pretty subtle. I can not figure out if it is a function of the 5 speed trans or if there is a real problem. I expect if I take it into the dealer they will not find anything.

Re: jeep slowing doen

It was pretty significant, It felt like it was downshifting too many gears.

OK thanks for the info. Mine seems very minor and does not happen all the time. Mostly during stop and go traffic with the trans is being put under more stress. My guess if there was another gear in the trans it would be a little smoother, but it is something I can deal with unless it gets worse or the check engine light comes on again.

I've got a 2012 V8 with the 6-Speed transmission and I noticed this slowing sensation from day one.

It isn't as dramatic as the OP, but I do notice the difference from other vehicles I've owned or driven.

Its almost like there is an unusual amount of drag on the transmission or vehicle sometimes.
