Cherokee Shutter on initial acceleration

I have a 2014 Limited Cherokee built in March 2014 with the 3.2 and I notice a shutter when I take off from a traffic light. The shutter is subtle and it goes away quickly but doesn't seem right. Is this something to do with the transmission. This happens as the car starts to move forward on slow/moderate acceleration. Thoughts?

Could be misaligned drive shafts or universals depending on your vehicle or whatever mode you are in. Front wheels run directly from your lateral engine. Simple solution is to have your dealer check it out to be sure.

If this is occurring in 2nd gear, it is something happening on the majority of Cherokees. A few had bad axels; however, it appears to be trans related. Turning off Hill Start Assist may lessen the feeling; however, there is no permanent solution as of now.

Don't do anything, but drive it to the dealer. It will get worse with use. By 10,000 miles I had to get a new transmission. It started cutting out at highway speeds. I got a new transmission and it drives like a champ.

Re: Cherokee Shutter on initial acceleration

Our Latitude 4X4, 3.2, active drive I with tow package does the same thing, 600 miles on it now, noticed at around 100 miles. From a stop accelerating slowly at about 16-18mph, shudder/shimmy. The vehicle was ordered 3/17 and delivered 5/19, picked it up right off the truck. Took it to dealer yesterday and with service advisor was able to replicate the wobble multiple times. He contacted Chrysler and got a Star advisor/manager on it, they recommended and ordered new drive axles which I was told are on national backorder if that tells you anything. I hope that solves the problem, love the vehicle, just can't live with the wobble/shudder/shimmy. Turning hill start assist off did not do a thing. They also road force balanced the tires just to rule them out and they were fine.

Re: Cherokee Shutter on initial acceleration

wifes new Cherokee has same problem 1600 mi 4x4 latitude v-6 going to the dealer next week. I have looked all around the internet and it seems a lot of Cherokees are experiencing this. dealer said they have replaced axles on one jeep so far and customer is coming back cause they stated the new axles did not fix. my wife is pissed that she bought this thing. other than this problem we love the vehicle anyone have any updates or anything on a fix to this problem? I feel there is only going to be more KL with this problem as time goes on. dammit I knew better than to buy first year model. thanx

Re: Cherokee Shutter on initial acceleration

Went into the shop this morning to have both front axles replaced, they had been on national backorder. Nevertheless, I am cautiously optimistic that this will fix the wobble but not totally confident that it will, too many other people have had axles replaced multiple times without solving the problem. I too am very disappointed with this issue. We love the vehicle otherwise. We will not let this go on long without seeking a resolution which will involve a buy back. No where in the literature and or sales information did it address the fact that you'll love this vehicle if you don't mind the wobble in the front end. I was expecting to purchase a new vehicle with a smooth ride and fault free, but then again I am a long time Toyota loyalist. Current mileage 950.0

Re: Cherokee Shutter on initial acceleration

landlp it is funny you mention yota cause that's what the wife traded in 09 corolla with 80,000 trouble free miles, my mom has always driven yotas until they rust out (not because of mechanical failure). but I bought a ram 2 yrs ago and have not had any problems so we figured what the hey. I think this is gonna be a big black eye for the new kl if they do not get it resolved quickly for anyone thinking of buying a new kl I would think twice until they get this problem resolved. anyone else with this problem please chime in thanx

Re: Cherokee Shutter on initial acceleration

Well, mine didn't have the vibration issue, rather it decided to cook itself. The tech at the dealership plugged in his diagnostic laptop and said the clutches were all over the place on his investigative drive. I'm now waiting for a transmission replacement. This got me to thinking that the shudder issue many people are reporting could very well be related to the solenoids/clutches not operating as designed and causing a conflict in certain gears, ie. second, where most are experiencing the problem. It seems that this tranny isn't yet fully baked.

It must be that new SST, Start-Shudder Technology.

Re: Cherokee Shutter on initial acceleration

Ours has had TSB 21-018-14 with adaptive learn procedure completed, both front axles replaced, wobble still there, took a couple hundred miles of driving to come back though, now more apparent in right turns and seems to occur more at transmission operating temperature, 150-165 degrees. Took it back in this morning, service manager is contacting engineers again. V6, tow, Latitude, active I, build 3/14, 1200 miles.

Did the Dealer come up with a fix to your problem?
