If I did a stop and go it would start out in 3rd gear and after about 2 seconds it would start out in 2nd gear. I have 24,000 on the 15 and its been great so far.
Yep!! My 14 is like your 15 now. I have a 2016 tranny in mine which I'll bet is what they started putting into the newbies. My does exactly as described. My old 14 tranny never went into 2nd, as you described too! So far so good. I'll be in a massive traffic situation on Friday...the best test.
Also I don't have that slip and jerk issue anymore. The 14 tranny would slip and then jerk when coming to an almost complete stop and then quickly accelerating as when one is in a traffic situation.
I'm loving my Jeep - so far - Again!!!
