Just Purchased 2014 Grand Cherokee Ltd V6

Hi All - Just purchased a new 2014 Grand Cherokee Ltd. As I have had it only three days I am not sure if this is typical or not of all Cherokees so just thought I would ask. Does the transmission appear a bit awkward when accelerating from 0 -20 MPH ( between speeds of 1-3 ). There are no strange noises or anything like that just doesn't seem as smooth as I would have expected. Hope I am providing enough of a description.

Thanks very much.

Re: Just Purchased 2014 Grand Cherokee Ltd V6

While the ZF 8-speed is very smooth, I noticed in my wife's JGC (same model/engine) that when shifting upward through third gear and accelerating harder, there is a bit of a "feel" to it... nothing bad, but not as smooth as when accelerating more slowly. Otherwise, I have to look at the tach and/or gear indicator to see what gear it is actually in.

Still getting used to all the new stuff in it (when she lets me drive it ).

Thanks, that is how I would explain it there is a "feel" or almost "jerky" movement to it. Just unclear if that is normal or something I should have checked out. Just a bit of more information, there is a difference as well if I ave the vehicle in "Eco" mode versus non ECO mode. Hope this helps a bit further to explain things. Appreciate the input and feedback
