I took my jeep in and they could not get it to throw a code and they didn't witness it happening. I asked them to check the spark plugs/ ignition coils because another forum had mentioned that being an issue with theirs. They pulled the coils and the #2 coil looked bad. They did not have any in stock so they taped it and greased it. Told me it should be fine but if not to let them know and they will order one. It lurches even harder now. So I'm getting it replaced. But just wanted to update everyone so they can check that as well if having this issue.
I'm not fixed. It's still lurching. I asked about the transmission reset and computer reset and update and was told they were done before but I can schedule again to have it retried. At $150 and not a guaranteed fix- I am leery.

I had problem, dealer didn't know what to do in 2020 for my 2017 trahawk so he changed my engine without initial approval as I have a lifetime warranty, my mileage still not same and the violent kicking is starting again (soft kicking around March, april). Not again. : (

Just bought my wife a 2017 latitude with 78k miles .. 2 days later we are getting the same bump / jerk around 30mph it feels like someone tapped us from behind. I hope I didn’t throw away 13k. I’m regretting buying an American car, never again.

So what I am being told when I call is that this is a major issue with renegades and pacificas. They dealerships are waiting on the software update to fix it. I have called Chrysler field office multiple times and they pass it back to the dealer EVERY TIME. My car didn't do this until a year or so ago. I want it fixed. I don't want to bring it in to the dealer for them to run diagnostics on it AND CHARGE ME TO DO SO when there is no fix yet. Jeep needs to fix this immediately!! At what point do we need to do a class action? There are multiple threads on this forum mentioning this issue. Some from 2018. its getting REAL OLD! I took a video the other day of the way my jeep acts going downhill too. The rpms rev erratically and the car acts very strange. My niece and nephew are getting their licenses soon. They would freak out if that happened to them. Possibly lose control of the car. We need answers and a resolution.
