Welcome ... don't "fear" the transmission...from my experiences,the problem is not the transmission...most likely software issues that can/will be corrected (hopefully soon) ....ZF makes a quality product (a lot of other manufacturers use them)..just have to get Chrysler engineering to figure out the issues. Enjoy the new vehicle !!

Congrats on your order and welcome to JCC!


The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Congrats on your purchase & welcome aboard. No problems with my TH & hope you have the same experience. Haven't been to "the island" since I worked in Sudbury in the 70's - it's a beautiful place.

Welcome from the mainland. Do you see any Hawthorn Eaters driving Cherokees? Or just tourists?

Welcome and congrats.
I would not worry at all about the 9 speed.
There is an adaptive learn period with the transmission.
It will smooth out during this period.

Congratulations on your purchase. We got our TH in early June (ordered late Jan) and, with 4600 miles on it now, it has been flawless both on road and on trails. I'm confident yours will be the same.
