I have 1,200 miles on her and already a problem. I was cruising at 45 and noticed the rpm's moving all over the place (quickly changing about 100-200). I let off the gas and it slows down about 10 mph in about 1-2 seconds. It felt like the brake was on. I check ebrake and 4X4 and nothing is on. It eventually quits and I proceed. Then tonight on the way home....... Same thing. Any thoughts.
PS - I got her with 4 miles on her and she has been driven correctly.

Warranty should solve it. Could be just a computer hiccup.

Definately agree with getting it back to the dealer to solve the problem. Don't waste your time waiting for someone on JF to chime in with a fix. That is exactly what your warranty is for.

Good luck.

In days of old many people would simply go out and disconnect the battery then turn on the headlights for about 20 minutes to fully drain all electrical power from the CPU (onboard computer). The reattach the cables and see if the glitch didn't correct itself and relearn your driving habits.

Downside is that it maynot correct itself and may erase any trouble codes from the computer memory. Another thought is you could run past your local auto parts store and see it they won't bring their scanner out and look for any trouble codes already stored on the memory.

Bottom line is, that while it is a PITA to take the Jeep in, the warranty will take care of the issue....unless it turns out to be bad gas.
