CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2019 Cherokee is racking up engine complaints for suddenly shutting down while driving. But the problem could possibly be related to the increasingly defective 9-speed transmission which suffers from hard shifts, lurching problems, and a wiring harness defect that can cause sudden shutdowns or an unexpected shift into neutral.

problem #2

Apr 242019

Cherokee Latitude 2.4L Multi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,500 miles


Had vehicle in dealership about a month ago because vehicle had about a 5 to 10 second delay when trying to accelerate from a roll of about 40 miles an hour. Vehicle started having the same issue again yesterday. Was told when I took the car in last month that they had to re-sync the transmission and engine. That did seem to help with the shifting issue but now it's started again the acceleration delay again. This is the second ongoing problem that hasn't been fixed. I will be filing under the state lemon law on the transmission and oil consumption because dealership has failed to fix either one.

Horrible transmission. Had doubts about purchasing Cherokee because of reviews that mentioned transmission problem but thought they were resolved. Test drove couple Cherokees and they were ok, but the 2019 exhibits the transmission issues mentioned for the previous year models.
