Deceleration Anyone?

I love my '14 SRT. I traded in a '12 for it.


Has anyone noticed when you let off the gas, the car starts decelerating quite quickly? Enough to the point that traveling down a hill, the vehicle will lose speed rather than gain it when letting off the gas pedal. Is this normal? I don't remember my '12 being that noticeable.

I notice this on my 14' Overland "5.7". I

Think it has something to do with a combination of a few things, mostly the transmission "engine braking" for you..

Oh, my suggestion, keep a very light pressure on the pedal, 1-5%, see if that helps.

Re: Deceleration Anyone?

From what i noticed as soon as i touch the brake pedal it will downshift to 4th then a few seconds to 3 until i give it more gas and then it will upshift to next gear. Now if i just let off the gas it will in time do its normal downshifting 4 to 3 to 2nd and most of the time it wont go into 1st until you stop.

Re: Deceleration Anyone?

Its probably more exaggerated since the Jeep is having to go through 8 gears instead of 5 and is downshifting to ensure that it is in the proper gear for when you decide to hit the gas again.

Or you can simply upshift via paddle. That would solve the problem altogether.

Re: Deceleration Anyone?

This is more noticeable in Track/Sport but, from what I can tell, normal for the vehicles. I actually like the fact that I'm saving my brakes...they will cost a few dollars when they need replacing .
