43k miles, New (reman.) transaxle assembly and rear drive shaft

Well after nine days in for service they replaced the 948TE transaxle asembly after I found it leaking and root caused the noise I had a hard time locating. After the trans. was replaced during the on-road test they actually heard the intermittent noise coming from the drive train I tried to explain, ended up being a noisey front bearing on the rear prop shaft they stated. All replaced under warranty.

I still have a hard time dealing with the fact that a two year old vehicle with 43k miles has spent so much time in for service with major defects

Runs fine so far, only about 200 miles on it at this point.

As it's slowing to a stop, does it downshift from 3rd gear to 2nd gear to 1st gear before reaching zero mph?

I'll have to pay more attention, its the wife's Jeep. I only drove it for two days to make sure everything seemed alright before she took it back.
