Same deal in the V6, horribly sluggish power at times other times it is quite snappy and revs fast lending more than adequate power.
In my opinion and as a performance enthusiast and as a consumer in general, it is pathetic that Chrysler would let this issue leave the factory.
The throttle response issues which must be linked to the, Timing, fuel and transmission kickdown programming is pathetic, at times my jeep has zero mind range power and must be floored to kick down into a lower gear and move.
Increadible as it seems I bought the jeep to replace my V6 Sohc Ford Explorer Sport, which had the timing Chain tensioner issue. The timing was off so the mid range power had a huge bog in it. Ironically this brand new jeep does the same damn thing.
There should have been a Re-flash of the computer to fix this issue by now. This is a huge problem that Chrysler continues to ignore.
Chrsyler/Jeep suck for letting this problem continue
