Our 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited gets stuck in 3rd gea and will not shift. It has 12,000 miles and has been in the shop 4 times for the same problem. It is very dangerous because the car will not accelerate in an intersetion and cannot move out of the way of traffic on the highway. The local Chrysler service manger in san rafael has told us that he cannot solve the problem and that the Chrysler regional manager has not responed to him or to us. The folks at Chrysler's 800 numer has told us that they cannot help us and referred us to the dealer.
