Re: Thinking of just selling the Jeep and being done with the tranmission problems

I would definitely get the F150.

It is not a direct competitor to the Jeep so there is no use comparing the vehicles.. you are simply frustrated with your lemon and want to move forward. Nothing wrong with that and you will be much happier.

Good luck.

I drove both the 5.0L and the 3.5L Ecoboost. The motor is sort of new but has been around since early 2010 in the Taurus SHO, it is also available now on other platforms as well.

The 5.0L sounded really good and couldn't tell a ton of difference in pull between the two. In fact, I would have to say the 5.0L is more responsive to throttle changes. The Ecoboost though for me is perfect, it has the torque when needed but I am hoping to see a good increase in light load trips and around town.

Re: Thinking of just selling the Jeep and being done with the tranmission problems

Can't really blame you for the decision to trade it. When you buy a new vehicle and it has an issue like this and the vehicle has to be torn apart to fix it several times it is never the same. Chrysler really needs to figure out this shutter issue and get it corrected, other than hard core jeep fans people are not going to put up with it too many other choices out there. I have not had the shutter issue but I have had some other problems with my new jeep. I will never buy a first year model from any manufacture again. I really blame myself because I knew this before I ordered, but I didn't want to wait another year.

Re: Thinking of just selling the Jeep and being done with the tranmission problems

That's a big bummer man. I saw your last post a couple of days ago. You still have not gotten a satisfactory response out of Chrysler? Are they still working on this at all?

Have you told the Chrysler reps this is what you are thinking of doing? The last thing they need is unhappy people abandoning their cars that are only a few months old. Word will get around quickly. I would also tell them that there are many current and prospective Jeep owners interested in how they address and handle your situation. That's just me. I am sure they know about this web-site and they know that people are coming here before making a buy decision.

I might be interested in your roof rails. I'll send you an e-mail later today when I get home.

If you would like and to declutter this forum, could you move over to the for sale section?

Chrysler has not contacted me since February 22nd. I have left two messages, neither of which were returned.

I interpreted that to be Scott's point-- that all the Jeep bailers could pitch in on a Raptor SuperCrew and divvy up the expense.
