Great looking, not so great to drive

Vehicle2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
ReviewWe leased our Grand Cherokee in June 2013, and so far have not been impressed.
Granted, the car is great looking, comfortable, and the interior is top notch.
That being said, the transmission in this car is a nightmare.
Shifting up and down through gears 1-3 is like riding in car with a 16 year old kid that is learning to drive a stick shift.
It slams and lurches in and out of gears, almost to the point of being embarrassing when we have friends or guests in the car. It never seems to know what gear it's supposed to be in while driving.
I'm glad I leased, and that in two years I'll be able to hand over the keys to the dealer instead of being forced to keep this car long term.
It's already been in twice for multiple warranty issues.
UPDATE: we ended up buying out our lease 9 months early and traded the car in for a Toyota 4Runner. Too many warranty issues, many of which we were stuck on a waiting list for parts. Couldn't be happier with the 4Runner and happy to be rid of the Grand Cherokee. We were so excited when we bought the Jeep, and it was a colossal disappointment.
UPDATE 2: So happy to have the Jeep gone and the 4Runner in my garage. Ten months of ownership into having the 4Runner and couldn't be happier.
