08 WK rolling backwards

Hey everyone quick question for you all. My 2008 WK always seems to roll back after I let my foot off the brake even when on only slight inclines, it rolls back almost like it is a manual transmission. Is this normal or could something be wrong with my transmission? The reason I ask is because my WJ never did this so it seems odd to me. Thanks in advance for the help.

Re: 08 WK rolling backwards

mine does the same thing .. itll roll back maybe 2-5 inches

i always put it in neutral and put the ebrake up and then put it in park .. just to keep the stress off the tranny

Same here. When I bought mine new I complained and had the dealer check it out. Was told that it's "acceptable".

Re: 08 WK rolling backwards

Just recently purchased an '08 and have noticed the same problem.. It's my one and only complaint (and considering how much I love everything else about the vehicle, it's a small complaint). My boyfriend says he thinks it may have been done by the manufacturer for purpose of the jeep having better gas mileage (my interpretation of what he said at least). I'm sure it is just something I need to get used to, and once I do, it will just become second nature.

It's not a problem. You're Jeep is fine.
