Re: Jeep's resoponse to my shudder/fishbite problem

Love it. EXACT same thing they did to me on my '14 rough shifting in the morning. Gotta love how once they talk to corporate, WE become ridiculous ones.

Re: Is buying a 2014 worth it?

My experience, in 5.5 months and 14,000mi:

-Clunky/Rough transmission. Chrys made 2 attempts so far to fix it and it is still clunky. Not as bad as before, but still certainly by no means...

Re: 2014 oil life

Same here. Later the same day I got the oil changed, someone commented on this as well-stating it happened after the last transmission update that came out on 9/11/13. Did you have this done?

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Hey Will,

Well, my transmission has bad habits from poor software and I am trying to work around them at this point--I mean for months I've dealt with this harsh cold shifting and drove as I...

Re: 2014 Shifting

It just changes the shift pattern. Think of it as:

Eco = Conservative
Eco Off = Normal/Moderate
Sport = Aggressive

I prefer eco off for most driving and sport when I'm about to pass on a...

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)

Alright, phew! Glad to hear it. I'll report back about the shift quality in a hundred miles or so...I find it takes a week or so to get the full effect of the updates with this trans.

Thanks!

Re: FLASH: TRANSMISSION SHIFT ENHANCEMENTS (vehicles with 3.6L engine)
