Tell you a little story. I am truly not in love with this nightmare. So, I went to a couple of non Jeep dealers about a trade on a new car. Well there was a pat on the back and a smile.....then both dealers said, the word is out on Cherokee. Do not go near the car because of the TRANNY. I know the word is out....I am living it.
That's a broad statement for these "NON JEEP DEALERS" to make.
I would guess they are just shooting their line of BS on the competition and getting you ready for a low ball on a trade in.
But time will tell.
I would suggest that you get your dealer to resolve the issue.
You may have to work it through Chrysler customer care also.
If an accident was almost caused then I would also suggest you file a complaint with the NTSB and also notify them that the dealer has been unable/unwilling to resolve it, if that is the case.
My Cherokee has been perfect now that I am past the AL phase
A 12/11 build with no TSBs needed. At 4,000 miles most of the time you can not even feel the shifts.
There is absolutely NO reason
that this Dealer can not resolve your concerns and make you a happy Jeep customer.
The one thing you do want to remember is that the TSBs do not negate the need for AL in your vehicle. The TSB just helps the process along.
Good Luck in the resolution of your problem. I'll be waiting to hear that it was resolved successfully and you are a happy jeepster.
