2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
I have had my Grand Cherokee for a week.
It has been an improvement over what I had before.
The only concern I have is the transmission.
Does anyone have a hesitation when the accelerate from a stop and then it kicks in and when braking does it feel like a slip in the transmission?
Radio and ride smoothness
None so far unless there is a problem with the transmission.
We noticed that slight hesitation too, here's the tip we received: take the car out of 'eco-mode' unless you are highway driving. when in 'eco-mode' (small button at base of middle console) the car does hesitate at point of acceleration. Worked for us.
I noticed something very similar with my 2014 GC Laredo 4X4, but I wasn't sure if it was me adjusting to a totally different kind of car (I had a Nissan Juke before) or if it was an actual mechanical issue. It seems like there is a bit of puttering happening though I don't notice it happening consistently.
