The V6 8 sp transmission...yes it is. One only has to count the number of TSBs that Chrysler has issued for it.

You might want to check for the recall on your sarcasm detector's batteries.
They seem low...

Hey, when they are running they are SUV of the Year. When they are broke down or sitting in the shop for a recall they are a POS.

I've got 2 of them and never had a problem other than the dash going blank on the '14. Love driving them. And they get so many TSBs and recalls that I am never late for an oil change.

I'm going to have to stop with the TSBs on the '11. I'm out of warranty now and the dealer charged me for 2 TSBs week before last. $20 for one and $30 for another. I don't even know what they were. I just told him to check it for TSBs when I took it in for the brake booster and sunvisor recall. No more TSBs unless they come out with one that I am REALLY having the associated problem.

I skip TSB's unless I have a problem. Most TSB's are for customer complaint only problems. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it's a serious problem, they issue a recall.

This is 100% correct. When it works I absolutely love it and they demonstrate why they are a good value even at the top end $50-60k pricetag. But when they break you will wish you didn't drop large sums of cash on a Chrysler product because not only do they have issues, but dealing with dealerships service departments is just awful.

^^^That post sounds like we are talking range rovers here doesn't it. I still think jeep is the ticket when price is a factor. But, like the other posts, it's a bummer when it's at the dealership.

So far though, my 14 has been close to perfect. My early build 11 was a different story....

I saw a 2014 (or '15) on a flat bed being towed today.

Love mine though (2012, it's been towed twice to the dealer though).
