Transmission clunks when shifting to park
 
Very loud clunk when i shift from drive to park or drive to neutral. If i slam it to park very fast tere is less noise, but if done normally it is very loud.

I have a 2012 overland with 5.7 v8 with 3000 miles. Bought december 2011. It has done this since new but seems to be getting worse.

Anyone else see this problem?

Yes, it's another "known problem, no fix" issue. Mine does it, ekaz's gf car does it, been to the dealer (same dealer) a few times and all they can do is document it. Chrysler is aware that it is a growing issue. Sucks that a 40k+ car has to sound like this.

Mine is doing this as well. I just posted a topic thread on it as well.

Any news from the dealer on this?

Me too.. It does it unless I stop, pause and then switch. No rushing and it seems to disappear. Anyone else with the same result?

I went to the dealer a day after mine started doing that and they did a free software update. Sorry I don't have more details.

This issue will be addressed via an upcoming TSB. It will cover the 2012 Grand Cherokee and Durango. Scheduled release date for the bulletin is June 4, 2012.

so does this mean that until the tsb is released there's nothing to be done to fix the clunk and jerk? great name for a bank by the way.

No fix until TSB release.

The advance info just lists the 2012 model year, it's possible that 2011 could also be listed when the bulletin is released, or maybe at a later time.

Good to hear and thanks for the heads up. Mine does it occasionally.
