Transmission Shifter Issue
 
Has anyone else noticed that the shifter can be moved from Drive, to neutral, to reverse without hitting the brake or being in a complete stop? All my other vehicles never had this and I am wondering if it's just a design flaw for the 2011 Grand Cherokee.

It will not actually engage reverse.. it shifts the jeep to neutral, but will not shift into reverse while moving forward (at least at a substantial speed). My dog has knocked my jeep into reverse while going around 35-40 mph. It just stayed in neutral.

Pretty normal to shift into neutral without depressing the brake. I'm not sure about reverse, but since it doesnt actually shift to reverse, I don't think it's a design flaw at all.

How did you teach the dog to drive 35 - 40 mph?;)
