I haven't got it and I have done over 6000 km's. Maybe it doesn't affect vehicles that are right hand drive.

Mine doesn't have it either and also over the 6000km mark. I live relatively close to you richpal - maybe it's a geographic thing.

It seems so - we have many wobbleing Diesel's here on northern hemisphere.

The wobble on my 2015 Limited V6 completely vanished after disabling the Hill Start Assist. Anyone else try this approach?

Tried that, but still have the occasional wobble. It feels torque-related to me. Like, happens more when throttling hard up a hill from a stop. Or towing a trailer, so anything that's more....torque-y maneuvering if that makes sense. Like, the wobble feels like the vehicle trying to deal with excessive torque. It doesn't feel like a software thing. I have hope that the new axles are the trick. Mine also isn't enough of a wobble to actually feel like a problem...more of a quirk.

I would actually love to attend some kind of meet up where we could all try out each other's vehicles to compare driving characteristics and things like the wobble. It's so hard trying to describe it with words!

I just bought my 2015 Limited 2 days ago, and I thought something felt funny on my way home, after driving it a couple days and making a few highway trips I have noticed this wobble around second gear, and it is most noticeable right after getting of the highway and coming to a stop, the next couple times I accelerate it wobbles pretty good.

The wobble on mine is only when slowing... I am pretty sure it is just the brakes. I can "feel" that one of the brake pads or rotors is just a bit off.

I am also experiencing the wobble accelerating turning right and hesitation in shifting, slamming into gear. Jerking forward.
Brought my 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude into service on 5/1, was told there was a star case open. No fix. Drive it home, you're fine. On 5/7, with 2200 miles on it, I attempted to pull out of a parking lot and it hesitated and left me sitting in on coming traffic finally jumped into gear chirping the tires. I was almost T-Boned. My check engine light came on along with a start/stop error. My car would not go above 25mph and kept bucking & jerking. I contacted my dealership and it was towed to the service department. It was there for 16 days while I drove around their junk loaner car. They found a coolant leak, fuel injection problem, had to swap injectors and replace a gasket. They also claimed they couldn't duplicate the hesitation or wobble. BULL. I attempted to bring my car back in on 5/26 because it is still hesitating & wobbling and they refused to take my car. I contacted Chrysler and informed them of what just happened and they set me up an appointment for 6/3 and according to the service manager, they are not allowed to touch my car until the technician from Chrysler arrives. I am driving the same junk loaner and they have no idea how long it will be before I hear anything.

I have read SO many of these complaints on this forum. Everyone seriously needs to go to this website and post your complaints. The only way a recall will be done is if they get enough complaints. Lets make Chrysler do the right thing.

I'm kinda sad to keep reading more and more about others who are experiencing the same wobble trouble I am. And the rough shifting too.
I mean it's not every day I buy a new car, I had such high hopes for being a first time Jeep owner.
I'm even embarrassed to talk about it to family and friends when they ask me how it's going with the new Jeep.
I do understand that not everyone is having these troubles but it seems to me a lot of users here ARE having issues.

On my previous ride...the Nissan Xterra 4x4, I never knew I even had a transmission, everything was so smooth and powerful.
And I guess it never had to "learn" anything either.

I find it so distressing that when you take your Jeep in for service, they act like they never heard of the issues or they "play" dumb.
They claim they could not duplicate the problem...I guess they have not really taken the time to look into it enough...they are busy moving on to the next appointment or something. I had a great experience for the most part at my Nissan dealer's garage. Over the years I developed a great trusting relationship with them, and together we took the best care of my last 4x4, it was very hard for me to give it up on trade in day.

Well, I will try to think positive and hope this all gets worked out sooner or later.
