Jeep still seems to be ironing out a few kinks in that nine-speed automatic transmission featured in the new Cherokee.
The company is encouraging the owners of 10,000 Cherokees built before May 5 to bring their vehicles into dealerships to get the computers in the transmissions reset for better shifting.
Apparently, the reflashing process was prompted by consumer feedback and Jeep’s desire to improve the overall performance of the new nine-speed automatic transmission, which delayed the initial launch of the Cherokee by two months.
Resetting the transmission’s computer should take roughly five minutes; however, some Cherokees bought in for the free service might also require a 100-minute test drive as well.
