'13 Transmission pulsation?

Hi Everybody,
Purchased a loaded, low mileage (18K) ’13 Laredo from a dealer in October. Coming from a fully utilitarian SUV to this was like night and day. The ride is fantastic, the V6 is a smooth as silk and I really like the interior. Here’s my question, never owning a Jeep before, I have this very slight pulsation from, I believe, the transmission when I accelerate from a stop to about 20-25 mph. The tech at the dealer drove it and said its normal front and rear “clutch pack” engagement. Has anyone ever heard of this? I guess I could find another “13 to test drive to see if it has this same sensation. Thanks for any insite.

The transmission is a bit sloppier than other makes, may take getting used to. My 13 was much improved with the latest flash.

Re: '13 Transmission pulsation?

Well, I drove a 2012 today that was smooth like it should be. I think this may be why the previous owner of my 2013 traded it in after 18K and it sat on the lot for a year. Maybe the extended warranty is in order. Thanks.
