Re: 9 speed transmission?

Now that I have over 1000 miles on it I'll give the engine braking a try.

Thanks much for your advice... planning trip in a few weeks... MA to TX. I hope it's cooled off enough down there by then :).

Re: Flat towing behind an RV

On that long trip, did you have any overnights where you didn't disconnect the Jeep? Did you feel it necessary to run the Jeep in the AM to warm it up or charge the battery?

Re: 9 speed transmission?

Good article... I was puzzled at the lack of engine braking on downshifts; now it all makes sense.

Re: 2015 Cherokee

There could be a simple way to change the default so StopStart stays off when you start the engine. Maybe someone has discovered it.

Re: 2015 jeep cherokee start and stop system.

Hil assist works at an upward angle of 7 degrees or greater. When the angle is less that that slight rollback occurs.

Re: 2015 jeep cherokee start and stop system.

When on a slight upward incline, there's a little rollback just when the trans shifts into gear after taking your foot off the brake. Not sure if that's particularly good thing for trans clutches.
