    This is the first time contacting Jeep Cares, so if I'm not going about it correctly, I would appreciate it if someone would let me know.

    How can I find out if my Cherokee has the C-clutch issue or not? Also, if I do have this problem and if there isn't any actual failure, then what happens if there is a mechanical issue after my warranty runs out?

    I have a several month old 2016 TH, no significant mechanical issues. I do have 2 concerns at present. It seems it is impossible to use the engine/transmission for downhill braking. I manually downshift and the vehicle will slow some, then accelerate. RPM's will go up to 5,000 but the vehicle is not slowing unless I use the brakes. Not very good for mountain driving. Secondly, especially after a recent trip into the mountains in California, with night driving, I feel the standard headlights border on dangerous. I have never driven a vehicle with such poor and dangerous illumination. I can't imagine they would pass DOT requirements and plan on filing a complaint with NHTSA. Jeep really dropped the ball on this. phil

    Hi Kori, thanks again for all your help on our Cherokee you really are the Best! Our family also recently purchased a used 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT ($52000) and we are having the delaminated carbon fiber bezel issue. It was replaced by our dealer under warranty in January of this year and it has already failed. We called SRT customer service and they told us because we crossed the 36,000 mile mark we are out of luck and said that it happens when you park or drive in the sun?!?. Anyways do you know of another contact person we should be corresponding with for this SRT problem? Thank you

    Hi! I came across you on this forum and made a new username just to contact you. I have a 2008 Jeep Patriot, I am the second owner, and living in NY. Previous owner also lived in NY. The front subframe is completely rusted out. The car was built in December 2007. Do you know if this is eligible to be replaced by Chrysler? Do you need the VIN? Any help/clarity would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi JeepCares.
    Is there any way to put in a feature request for UConnect? I often put entire albums and remixes on my drives and I would love for UConnect to be able to play them in order. I currently have to go on my computer and re-tag the Track-Title IDv3 tags of every song in a contiguous album to include the track number in front of the track-title. I would love it if UConnect would play in order of either file-name in the folder or via the Track# tag.
    Thanks.

    Continued from prior message due to length:

    Can you help? Everyone on this forum who responded to my issue says that only new transmissions solve all the problems. They cite many cases where replacing the tranny with a rebuilt one resulted in recurring and serious problems. I've owned 8 Grand Cherokees or Cherokees in my life, and I've never had something like this occur. I'd like to keep loving Jeeps.

    The vehicle is not presently at the dealer: we are waiting for the arrival of the parts. Here's some info I think you will need:

    Name: Patterson S. Weaver Jr. (aka "Pete")
    VIN #: 1C4PJMBS9EW239651 Build Date: 4-14 Mileage: 8,578
    Dealer Name and Address: South Hills Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 3344 Washington Rd, McMurray, PA 15317
    Service Advisor Name and Number: Geno Brown, 724-941-4300

    My contact info:
    412-831-5352 (land line, try first)
    412-522-4985 (cell, try second)

    Hello sir:

    Others on the Jeep Cherokee Club board recommended I bring my issue to your attention. My 2014 Cherokee Trailhawk V6 with 8,578 miles (build date 4-14) has recently been throwing its Check Engine light on frequently, often steadily. All of its recalls and flash upgrades had already been done. Yesterday at my Dealership, they determined that the Check Engine code is U0402 "implausible data received from TCM." They tell me they "opened up a case at STAR and were advised to replace the transmission."

    I've asked about this on the Cherokee Club board, and several experienced members, including a couple master moderators, said I probably do need a new transmission, but that I should be sure it is replaced with a NEW one, not a rebuilt one. I just called my dealer and was advised that they expect the part(s) to be refurbished used parts, and they said they have not control over what Chrysler sends them. Do to text length limits, I will send rest in followup message.

    Just a heads up a new post "Transmission lag from a stop?" was put up today and others are chiming in on the issue. Same as mine. I am not posting on it as we are working on it and I don't want to cause any confusion in case it is different than mine.

    Thank You
