    Jeep Cherokees Still Waiting On Fix For Transmission

    It has been a few weeks since we reported on the Jeep Cherokee and its transmission woes and the news hasn't gotten better. The Detroit News is reporting that Cherokees are still parked at the Toledo factory where they are built. There is some good news though. Chrysler appears to be in final stages of testing a new powertrain calibration that should help the transmission and get vehicles onto dealer lots.

    “Chrysler Group is in the final stages of validating the updated powertrain calibrations,” said Gualberto Ranieri, vice president of communications for Chrysler.

    “Once the latest powertrain calibration is validated, the company will be able to quickly update the powertrain software on Cherokees already built and ship vehicles to dealerships around the country in quantity.”

    This should be good news to buyers who have been waiting quite awhile to get their hands on their vehicles.

    Its unfortunate that its been delayed because of this, but at the same time its better they figure it out now before the vehicle goes on sale rather than after and having to do recall it like Ford had to with the Focus.

    After seeing the Jeep in person last night, I have changed from not liking it to liking it.

    It actually looks way better in person than in the pictures. Very nice auto.

    While some will hate the CUV UniBody, I suspect it will not affect them having gone from BOF to Uni. Fit and Finish is great on the one at Seattle International Auto Show.
