Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

I guess you are right and thanks for the reply man I really appreciate it.. I sent them official email and the replied that the technical manager will call me to arrange a visit to check the car himself.. which I respect from them but let's see..

Also you are right in a ay that when I keep the gas paddle constant in low speed it doesn't hertz only when I go to the 2nd gear without pressing gas here I feel a slight jump forword...

But also I noticed the shift down is a bit rough as well I can feel it but it doesn't effect the braking process of the car...

If the trans acts a little funny the first few hundred miles while its learning that could be considered normal but after a couple thousand miles you shoulx not be having shifting issues. The 8spd in the GC that runs right is a joy to drive i like it a lot. Dont let the dealer feed you a bunch of crap about screwed up ahifting being normal for the 8spd because it is not normal. Take it back and make them fix it right. If its brand new give it several hundered miles to learn unless its really bad then take it back before that.

Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

Mine has a rough downshift from 2-1. It's annoying. And a lot of times making a brief stop it wants to start out in second, which is even more annoying. Almost like it knows it can't downshift into first smoothly so it'll save you the trouble and start in second lol

Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

Been almost a week since the update/ wipe they did, and the jeep has been running smooth so far. Took it on a ~300 mile round trip yesterday and she ran great. Crossing my fingers it stays that way, as this is round 2 on the wipe/update.


My Uconnect was also updated when all of this service was done. The "favorite artist/song" stopped displaying in the top left corner of the screen since that update, despite all the favorite artist/songs still being tagged. Gotta call and check on that Monday

Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

OK so the agency called and I'll drop the car Sunday to fix the issue as they promised and they will give me a replacment car till they finish it . But here is the funny part I asked them how long it takes they said around a day.. so if they are changing the valve body does it take a day only ? Or they will update software and that's all ..

I have mine at 38 PSI cold, which would be 2.7 kg/cm. Not sure how hot it gets where you are, but my pressure usually tops out at about 40 PSI in the heat, which would be 2.8 kg/cm
