Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

I have not used the emergency brake once on this car since I bought it 3 years ago. on an extreme hill or incline I would. I don't see the point with automatics on level ground. of course with everyone having trouble getting these cars into park it surely would not hurt I guess.

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

It is interesting to note that some folks call it a "parking brake" and others in this discussion call it an "emergency brake". When we drove stick shifts you had to have a brake on when parking with the tranny in neutral. But once automatic transmissions arrived they had a position on them called "Park" (and neutral) implying that took the place of the brake. Why else did they put "park" on the gear selector? That brake lever that was still there became an "emergency brake".

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

Why are the 14/15' JGC equipped with the 5.7L or the 3.0L Diesel not included in this discussion or the recent investigation. I know the V-6 has the 845RE (8HP45) transmission and the 5.7L HEMI and 3.0L Diesel has the 8HP70 transmission, could it be that the sheer number V-6's or that the 8HP70 was not revised by FCA. I bring this point up because I just test drove a MY15 V-6 and noticed the characteristics that have been discuss in this thread. I'm in the market for a leftover or low mileage used MY15 and trying to decide on a 6 or 8.

Exactly ... well said... Maybe it should be renamed "unusual attitude brake" (for those that fly will know).

You all will get a kick out of this flamewar thread: Holy smacks! My JGC just moved itself out of the driveway

There's apparently an ongoing NHTSA investigation for this matter as well.

I don't have any complaints about the 2014-2015 shifter. I use the parking brake since that is what it's there for.

My Lincoln with the push button shifter also puts itself into 'P' if I shut down the engine and forget to put it in park.

Same here, I'd never rely on a transmission alone to keep the heavy vehicle from rolling away, I automatically apply the park brake when turning off the engine, so easy especially with that foot pedal....
