Hi Adicxxl,I have a 2017 w the same problem.To be more exact , at around 25mph when it shifts firm 2nd to 3rd gear, sometimes is jerks/kicks back violently.how often, well I think too often and quite frankly I’m not happy about it, the problem is I tried to explain it to the service adviser at my local dealer many times and I can’t replicate it when I’m there. It only does it whenever it wants, I couldn’t detect a pattern.
I saw an older post about this, but kinda lost track of it and then couldn’t find it any longer.
A good example of when the car would do this kick back/transmission jerking is for example you stop at a stop sign, then accelerate straight and realise there’s another stop sign coming up so about 25 miles an hour you ease off the gas pedal because you need to stop again, I think that’s when the Jeep does it. I really don’t know how to recreate a situation for this to happen but it’s very annoying
Hello BumblebeeJeep,Yes, I just posted on another thread, but my new-to-me 2016 Renegade Trailhawk does the same thing. First and worst for me is the shift around 14-17mph but also around 25, 35, 45 so with each shift. It's making me regret my purchase and worry it's only going to get worse.
Has you transmission issue been resolved? I have the same jerk at 25-30 miles and hour, I think that’s the 3-4 shift point. The first dealer said it was low oil causing the issue (never had a new car use so much oil before) doesn’t show any codes. I’m scheduled to have it looked at again on the 14th.
Hi John and Carlos,Same problem here. 2017 Latitude 4x4. 2nd to 3rd it jams the shift whenever it wants and sometimes even makes it to 6k rpm before shifting. It's SO dumb. I HATE this thing's tranny.
Absolutely! It the one thing that might keep me from upgrading next year. I am going to contact the dealer and see if they can do something.
Hello DKingJr48170,Recently purchased a 2017 Jeep Renegade 4x4 and I'm experiencing the same issue. Drives fine a lot of the time but randomly around 25 when changing gears it shifts hard and jerks the vehicle. I have an appointment with at my dealership on Saturday of next week. Hopefully the information from this forum will help them resolve it as I do not feel it is a safe vehicle for my daughter.
Amazing how many customers seem to be having the same problem. Dealers don't seem to have a clue other than "we'll restore it to factory settings so it can relearn your driving style" which isn't a fix. Doesn't make it any easier either that there is no definitive list of Jeep TSB's with descriptions more than just "Transmission fix".I’m at the dealership now with the same issue. This is the fourth time I’ve been in to get this issue dealt with. Apparently this is very common with this vehicle. Previously they reset the computer with no change. Now the are putting transmission back to factory settings since I bought it used and it learns the drivers style of driving. Hopefully this works but I doubt it will...sounds to me like Jeep is just crap. I would have never bought this car if I knew this was an issue. Only had the car three months and I’ve been to the service department 4 times for a certified used vehicle. Next car will be back to a Honda. The extra cost is worth the quality.
Yes, I have a 2017 Jeep Renegade Limited doing their same thing. Just had the transmission fluid changed at 60k miles. Thought that would solve the problem but it did not. Dreading taking it to the dealer and finding out it’s a serious and expensive fix ?
