Re: Trans shifts hard from D to R to P

Noticed the same problem right after taking delivery. Interestingly enough it's not all the time but most of it. Was thinking of convertor- felt similar hard engagement on rebuilt transmissions before. Technically should've taken it to a dealer but forsee "they all do it, more or less" response. Will keep watching it for now- it does shift nicely.

Yea my 2011 jeep grand cherokee does the same thing. The dealership says that the transmission shift hard due to the drivers driving habits.
DON'T MAKE SENSE TO ME EITHER!!!!

Mine has the same problem. 5.7 overland..just got it today and noticed it right away ! The dealer said that it's normal on 5.7 engines and it won't cause any issues..so no worries.

Re: Trans shifts hard from D to R to P

I THINK I remember seeing an update for a harsh engagement into drive just like 2 weeks ago when I had a wk2 hooked up to the witech. Ill look around and try to find some more info.

Re: Trans shifts hard from D to R to P

My 05's been doing it for years. Seems to like when I take my time putting it in gear. If you look hard enough, you'll find posts on this subject on 99-04 jeeps...

Re: Trans shifts hard from D to R to P

My 2012 Overland WK2 is only two weeks old and it does it too. I did not notice it during the test drive, or during the first few days. However, it does 90% of the time now.

I feel like I'm driving a clunker as it makes a very loud CLUNK when I shift into park.

I have had many automatics in my life, all bought new (two Nissan Maximas, one Honda Civic, one Ford Mustang, one Mazda MPV, one Toyota Highlander, and one Toyota Sienna), and this is the first where I have seen this problem.

5.7L engine, if that matters...but it shouldn't.

Sad.

Re: Trans shifts hard from D to R to P

Mine has all but gone away (14k miles).

I've found that bringing the vehicle to a complete stop, and letting it idle for 15ish seconds makes a ton of difference. If you shift from D to P even the slightest bit abruptly causes this clunk.
