My buddy and his wife just picked up a 2014 GC with the Pentastar and 8-speed automatic. Has probably less than 1,000 miles on it. Maybe not even 500 not sure. But they've had it about 3 weeks.

It's currently in the shop with no ETA whatsoever waiting on green light for a full transmission replacement.

I didn't know this until today, but apparently Chrysler is using two different 8-speeds depending upon vehicle. I guess the GC gets the crappy version.

'92 YJ - heavily modded
'96 ZJ - heavily modded
'05 KJ CRD Limited - 370 lb./ft. from a 4-cylinder and trail ready. Pure awesomeness.
'11 Mango Tango JKU Sport - Mods
'12 Dozer JKU Sport S - 6-speed - ACE rock rails - Max Tow package - Daystar spacers - 33x12.50 Duratracs

The two different trannys have to do with the V8 or V6 application.

I talked my buddy into picking up 2013 JGC Altitude(V6) for his wife.
She loves it, won't even let him drive it.

No issues.
