Hi there, bought my first jeep last November 2018 and have put in a lot of miles on it since (about 20k) not super hard miles just around town with a couple trips up the snow early in the year.
currently I am experiencing an issue when exceeding 37 mph and approaching a stop light or sign I press the breaks and as I go through the range of 25-18 mph my car lunges forward as it slows down. Almost feels like it accelerates slightly as I’m slowing down. That is the best way I can describe it. Looked around and haven’t seen a whole lot on what I’m experiencing, any input would be greatly appreciated.

Hi meuni011,
Are you considering having your dealer take a closer look? If you decide to go this route and would like additional assistance throughout your dealer visit, please send us a PM. We'd be happy to connect you with a Case Specialist.

Does engine RPM jump up as it lunges forward?

Try slipping into neutral as you slow down. See if it still lunges forward or if the engine revs up as you hit the same point during slowing down....

sounds like an issue i had as well. look and see what gear it is in and shifting to when it happens. Mine always did it when it would shift from 5th to 4th.

I have the same "issue" MY15 Summit 5.7. Its almost as if the electronic assist on the Brakes readjusts and you're forced to use more pressure. Which makes for a not so smooth stop. Im curious what your dealer says if you bring it in.
