Re: If your 8spd trans is rough, put your hand up

That's exactly my main complaint. I leave mine in Economy mode as this is the default. Not sure if this behaviour is is the same in sports mode.

Re: Looking to purchase a 2015 GC Altitude in NY

To be honest with you, I'd buy another brand vehicle.
Buy Fiat/Chrysler if your pain tolerance is very high. Do your homework.
Transmission: Unacceptable and by itself a reason to pass the GC even...

Re: And yet another JEEP recall announced today

I don't mind as long as it gets acknowledged and fixed. I do mind when I have to pay outside of the warranty period for things that never ever seem to break on Japanese vehicles.

Re: V-6 or V-8, regrets?

Totally regret not having a Hemi, the GC is too heavy for the V6, that engine would be fine in a sedan but not in such a heavy SUV.
Turbo Diesel with same displacement is fine with lots of torque.
