The way I read it is that he has 9 Cherokees in his fleet, 6 have had this break and 3 have not. He's not extrapolating to the general population of Cherokees. The only 3 in that '3' are his 3.

(... Correct me if I'm wrong @Desoto)

If you are correct that makes much more sense.

Mine happened 3 days ago at 15680 miles and the dealership stated they are on "mega backorder" suggesting this happens A LOT!

In case you need the part number here it is (at least for the limited v6 2014 model - cant imagine its all that different from the others):

Quick Order
Part Number 5YD261X9AA
Part Name KNOB KIT SHIFTER
MSRP $98.60


Hope this helps.. just had mine replaced as it broke about two weeks ago at 15700 miles from normal use, no abuse.

Warranty replaced (as it should be).

Never happened on our '14 in 19,000 km, and since we keep our car in the garage, we back out almost every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times, plus backing out of parking slots whenever we go shopping, or to the post office, the Legion, a restaurant, etc.. - Ted

Mine is completely trashed! From trying to rip it out of the console because it won't shift into 8th at like 65 on a flat highway.

this just happened to me today. i have 17,359 miles on it and it just popped off. to make matters worse i lost my arbitration hearing in which i had hoped to win a replacement veh. found out right after it happened from a letter i got in the mail, which just infuriated me more. i hope anyone reading this never buys a Chrysler product. this has been a nightmare since day 3 when it broke down in my driveway. 14 trips in for service for various problems. jeep will be getting a very nasty message come tomorrow morning AGAIN!
