The following models appear to be most afflicted by these faulty transmissions and engines: the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Renegade, Jeep Compass, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Jeep Wrangler. Are you experiencing problems with your jeep’s transmission? If you own or lease one of these car’s and have had transmission or engine difficulties, keep reading to see how Cali Lemon Lawyers may be able to assist.

Jeep Cherokee Transmission Problems

Jeep Cherokee Transmission Problems

Last year, Fiat Chrysler issued a recall for nearly 100,000 Jeep Cherokees worldwide after it was discovered that these vehicles lose power unexpectedly due to a transmission issue. According to reports, when a driver shifts the car into park, the transmission doesn’t act accordingly, which has increased the risk of the car rolling away and crashing. The Jeep Cherokees that were included in the recall included the 2014 – 2017 models.

More recently, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee has been said to have its own set of engine problems. Unfortunately, many drivers of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee have been experiencing the need for repeated service appointments, even when the cars are just brand new.

If you’ve leased or purchased a Jeep Cherokee with transmission issues,iit might be a lemon and you may be entitled to a refund, replacement, or cash settlement.

Jeep Compass Transmission Problems

Jeep Compass Transmission Problems

Transmission failure in the Jeep Compass is indicated by delays in shifting, grinding or leaping while accelerating, shaking at all speeds, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to your Jeep Compass’s transmission problems, you might notice a decrease in fuel efficiency or be unable to drive it at all.

The symptoms of a failing transmission are:

  • Warning engine light. Your Jeep Compass transmission warning light is on.
  • Transmission fluid leaks. Leaks are uncommon, but they might indicate a problem with your transmission hose.
  • Something doesn’t smell right. This may be a sign your transmission fluid is burning.
  • Odd grinding sounds. When you change gears or if you notice your gears catching when you shift them.
  • Delayed gear shifting. When your gear change is delayed after the transmission has shifted.

Jeep Wrangler Transmission Problems

Jeep Wrangler Transmission Problems

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is being touted as one of the most advanced jeep models in history. Unfortunately, many drivers are experiencing issues with its transmission when it’s just a few months old or less than 1000 miles on their odometer.

If your Jeep is experiencing delayed gear shifting or shuddering when accelerating, you’re not alone. This is typical of faulty transmissions.

If you have a 2018-2019 Jeep Wrangler and are having problems with your transmission, common reports include strange behavior that has caused vehicles to enter “limp mode”. Harsh gear changes and loss of power are among the complaints, while other owners report sloppy clutch pedals.
