Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

How is your Jeep doing? I'm taking mine in Tuesday for the new TSB flash issued 8-15-15. That will be its second flash since I got the car.

Re: Grand cherokee2015 gear issue

But what's troubling is that when they replace these valve bodies, they aren't replacing them with newer, defect-free units. They...

Let me clarify what I wrote:

The service manager said that the transmission has "too many gears and it gets confused" depending on certain driving conditions.

Re: Harsh Shifting

Valve body replacement did nothing. Five delayed shift events in the last 30 minutes. Getting "hung up" from 1-2 or 2-3. Just called dealership. They'll get back to me.

My wife had exact same car. She got hers two weeks after mine. Hers drives like its gliding on ice. Must be a car by car basis with the transmission programming.
