My service tech who is nice asked me where I get these things (referring to the half-shaft axle replacement thing I told him about last year too).....but there was no service bulletin that would pop up for mine....which makes no sense since it should include mine. I even had a printed out copy. Double argh!

Well....I have to take it in for a hopefully miner lift gate closer latch sensor thingy which for that I need an appointment (earliest is two weeks out) so will insist on the Service Bulletin 21-003-15 be performed at that time. It does say that wiTECH software level must be 15.02 or higher so perhaps they are behind. Dunno.

Who all has had the Service Bulletin 21-003-15 performed on a 2014 4x4 V8 GC? Did you have to specifically ask for it???
Took mine in last week for different issues and simply asked them to perform this bulletin. The service tech wrote it down, looked it up and had the tech. perform the update. Shifting much better with ECO mode on.

So you got the update performed?

Does your eco mode button light up after shutting engine and back on?

Thanks....I'll try again. My service tech is good but the whole service department seems a tad disorganized. Will bring the print out of it in again.

The ECO off default not holding is only for MY15. This got off track early in the thread when someone misinterpreted the Aug of 14 cut date for builds to mean that "any" rig built before that qualified when only MY15's built before then do. Sorry dude, I am as bummed as you, I friggin hate ECO's lame a$$ early shifting but a simple extra slap back of the shifter makes me happy

You mentioned misreading the TSB, but all it says is:

SUBJECT:
Flash: 8HP70 Transmission Shift Enhancements

OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves reprogramming the Transmission Control Module (TCM) with the latest available software.

MODELS:
2014 (WK) Jeep Grand Cherokee 2014 (WD) Dodge Durango
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a 5.7L engine (Sales Codes EZH) and an 8HP70 automatic transmission (sales code DFD).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
A small number of customers may indicate that the transmission shift quality may not meet their expectations under the following conditions. These concerns are separated by vehicle.
This bulletin is supplied as technical information only and is not an authorization for repair. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted, in any form or by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, or otherwise, without written permission of Chrysler Group LLC.

WK Vehicles
• **ECO mode will not retain settings. If ECO mode is turned off, it will turn back on after the ignition is cycled.**
• Less than desired upshift quality in normal drive mode under light/medium acceleration.
• Less than desired Power-on downshift quality (i.e. passing).
• Less than desired powertrain performance while driving at higher altitudes, on steep
