Since having it done the throttle is more responsive, transmission shifts smoother up and down and the ESC kicks in much quicker. I'm telling you its like driving a different vehicle. It will work on your V6 to...there another thread on it somewhere one here. One person said, that their V6 was like the Hemi in throttle response.
Wow! Am I pumped!
Had the ESC and V6 transmission TSBs done today at my dealer (apparently a first for at least the second one for them, since they were very reluctant, even though I gave them the printed TSBs, my vehicle fit the applicable build dates and I had been experiencing the problems.) They said they called Chrysler Engineering to discuss and get approval to apply them (actually the equivalent RRT flashes). As background, I'm at three months of ownership and 9,000 kms (5,400 miles).
In the past few weeks I had noticed the V6 had become more responsive. Put it down to possible throttle 'training' or the end of ESC system training (first 50 starts).
But after the TSBs this is a whole new vehicle, driven now for about 100 miles since they were applied. Almost like an old cable operated throttle. End of the throttle delay and and crisper shifts in all modes, even Auto.
To top it off the EVIC is showing better fuel economy too. I don't fully trust that, but I'll be checking my future tankfuls.
And it was free! It doesn't get much better than that. So good, I called the dealer back to report my good experience. I bet they don't get too many calls like that. Hopefully they will not be so hesitant to apply the TSBs for future customers.
If you have V6 throttle delay you should look into this!
