problem #3

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,500 miles


While in cruise control at 60 mph and traveling uphill the automatic transmission suddenly down shifted from over drive into 2nd gear causing a violent lunge forward (approx 2000 RPM to 5000 RPM). This RPM change was so violent that lost of vehicle control happened momentarily.

While engaged in cruise control and driving up a steep grade. The vehicle jumped from 2000 rpms to 6000 rpms. The vehicle dropped two or three gears and would speed up uncontrollably. This caused problems with the steering and the vehicle has tried to drive off of the road in one case.
