    Another Update for the Nine-Speed In the Jeep Cherokee and Chrysler 200

      The Nine-Speed Automatic Goes Back For Another Update

    Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has been working hard on trying to fix the nagging issues with the nine-speed automatic in the Jeep Cherokee and certain Chrysler 200s with constant updates. But those updates aren't making a dent in those issues as a number of complaints of hard shifts, lunging, and unexpected disengagement of the transmission litter the 2014 Jeep Cherokee page on SaferCar.gov.

    Automotive News has learned that Chrysler will be issuing a new update to 2014 and 2015 model year Jeep Cherokees and certain 2015 Chrysler 200s for the nine-speed transmission. This update only applies for models equipped with the 2.4L four-cylinder. A spokeswoman from FCA says the update is "intended to keep the vehicle performing as intended, and to prevent durability issues from occurring in the future."

    I wonder if they will use software to downgrade the programming on the transmission so you have less torque, HP and the way it locks up will have the transmission last longer but at a penalty. 


    My gut tells me that FCA does not really have a fix for this transmission and it will take a complete new build from scratch to fix the issue or they will drop the 9 and go backwards to a stronger more durable unit.
