Re: Overland question

My two cents, itís that MDS that makes it feel like crap in a lot of situations. I got the superchip just to get rid of it and itís made a world of difference. It shifts and drives a whole lot better and I donít think the gas mileage has really suffered. I know the Ď06 is completely different from the í11 model but Iím guessing they still suffer from some of the same issues. That doesnít excuse the issue but Iíve learned to live with its quirks, and really enjoy my Jeep.

Re: Overland question

Anything on this? Do the 12's with the 5.7 still do it?

Re: Overland question

I have the 12' Overland w/hemi and 6-speed and mine does the same thing. I have noticed that this truck is a bit geary. It doesn't coast. It seems to have a lower gear engaged and it slows when going downhill. I have chalked it up to the "personality" of this truck. I do enjoy it though. Its fun and comfortable to drive.

My 2011 Overland 5.7 has feeling of misfire/shudder whenever accelerating up slight inclines or even into headwinds, and I think it is disgraceful especially since it did not do this when new. This is not just a single event when going up inclines, it will surge/misfire/shudder all the way up unless I force downshift to overun it. Have had it to dealer and been in touch with customer service MANY TIMES, and they basically say "too bad". If I wouldn't be taking such a bath on it, it would be gone. Worst part is, I purchased this vehicle after SEVERAL test drives and love the looks, comfort, features and power of it. For those to just accept this, I find that unbelievable. Without consumer pressure, they will never fix this issue. This IMO, has nothing to do with off road capabilities making this vehicle "tough" so that we have to put up with trans/torque convertor ISSUES and/or fuel system calibration issues. I would gladly lose a bit of mileage if they needed to fatten up mixture a bit in portions of their mapping, in order to get this 5.7 to run smoothly. I also agree that Chrysler very misleading to all since it seems these issue to not come to light till a 1,000 or 2,000 on them. Sorry bout the rant but I find this issue a slap to our faces as we could have bought a dam 10,000 %^%#%*& import that runs perfectly.
Also have the feeling of something "slipping then engaging" when taking off from a stop at times but have just accepted this one as run issue P's me off a 100 times worse.

Sorry to hear that. I don't have this problem with the 2012 Hemi WK2.

I was contemplating trading for a 2012 however the dealership informed me nothing changed that would prevent this from occuring and would not say I wouldnt get same issue occuring.

There "claim" is all of the 2011 and 2012's do this however my belief is some do it much worse than others as in my case.

Glad to hear yours doesnt do it. Wishin I was as lucky!!!!

Re: Overland question

In mine it is very slight but I know what your talking about it feels like a slight miss under load. I wouldn't even memtion it the dealer though because I know its normal mds operation. Maybe some are worse than others or maybe its just more noticeable to some people? My question in this thread was the slight bump or slip that seems to be felt when taking off from a stop every once in a while.

Re: Overland question

I wonder if it is the qudra drive 2 system? I have a 2012 Overland with the ORA2 package with 1200 mi. and the shudder is annoying. The worst part is it seems to be mostly cruising on the highway say 55 mph and above. Full acceleration is smoothe the transmission does seem to get caught in the lower gears and wind to red line. 3/4 acceleration through 3rd gear then full throttle seems to keep it shifting better. Manumatic is also smoother and I haven't tried driving it around in tow/haul mode. I was thinking of upgrading to the Bwoody sway bar links and see what that does.
