2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited: Updated Transmission Software
February 20, 2015
It hasn't been an issue for us, but other 2014 Jeep Cherokee owners have been experiencing some problems with the shift quality from the standard nine-speed automatic transmission. According to Jeep, there's nothing physically wrong with the transmission, it simply has a few software glitches that occasionally result in abnormal operation.
Not everybody around here loves the way the transmission feels, but there have been no complaints about anything feeling abnormal. We may wait and see if anything crops up before we take it in to have the new software installed, or maybe we'll ask them to do it when we have the Bluetooth issue addressed. No one will have to turn a wrench, but the guys with the laptops will be plenty busy.
