2011 2 door. Almost a year old. Has 3,500 miles. Can't disengage overdrive with the button. Jeep is at the local dealer waiting to be fixed... Kinda sucks, but I am glad I am having my issue while it is still stock....
Update. Got the heep back today. Not fixed. They said the switch is bad and of course, it had to be ordered and they said they have never seen this before.

I believe this poll was created in response to another board. Quite a few of the members there are having serious TC issues. One guy had no issues at all, but out of nowhere , a seal in his tranny wore out, blew his tranny and now the dealer nor Chrysler will warranty his Jeep. The reason being "it does not smell or look like ATF+4." The guy proved it was and it made no difference.
Either you have not heard the full story, or he hasn't pushed for his rights. Legally they cannot do that, they cannot cancel the warranty unless they can clearly demonstrate the problem was due to customer abuse.
He should contact the state consumer protection board.
Took my 2007 to the dealership two weeks ago for a transmission problem I've had almost since purchasing it last year. Transmission would occasionally slip when accelerating, and sometimes when rounding corners the transmission would lock into its current gear and not shift. A few months ago it began overheating if in 4H for more than 10 minutes.
Shop had it for 4 days, transmission fluid and filter were changed and they told me they couldnt find any issues with the transmission, but flashed the PCM because of a transmission related recall. Service guy told me they could add a cooler for ~$600, but the overheating was a known problem with the auto.
Leaving the lot the tranny slipped again, so I did a loop and pulled back in, and pretty much blew a gasket on the service guy.
Canceled my warranty, and filed a complaint with Chrysler. The very next day got a call from a Chrysler special investigator, who was VERY interested in the transmission issues....as it seems my symptoms are pretty much spot on for the serious transmission failure with the 2007-2010 Automatic....lets see where this goes.
07 JK Rubi Unlimited Auto (~12,000 miles) - I voted for "constant problem" because I have any issue with torque converter shuddering when encountering any resistance in reverse (such as a speed bump or any incline). I've taken it to the dealer a few times and gotten a variety of responses and reflashes done, but nothing that's cured the problem. That said, I have no issues with the transmission under normal driving conditions (other than reverse).
Weird. I noticed the same thing. My dad told me to put it in the different gears and put the e break on. If it does it when in all gears it's tranny. Mine only does that in reverse as well. I tried all the other gears and couldn't mimic the shutter

I also have the shuttering in reverse when backing up my steep driveway with the boat hooked up. other than that it shifts and works great.dealer told me that it was common and said that the reverse gear really wasn't designed to tow any amount of weight. understandable i suppose, its a jeep not a pickup. i commend him for the honesty, and believe he'd take care of it if it ever became a real problem, and im tired of people complaining about how under powered their jk's are. under powered compared to what? a pickup? of course, its a jeep. when i compare it to my old tj, its a big improvement. just my 2 cents.
Occasionally tranny will slip while accelerating.....after doing this it will lock in that current gear and wont shift until I pull over and turn off the engine.
Has been to the stealership twice (for two days both times) and they say they cannot find any issues or recreate the problem.
Your problem sounds like mine. It was still happening when I got to the dealer, I'll update my post when I get their diagnosis.
I had to have the transmission torn down and the solenoid packs rebuilt. This was before 36k miles, and thankfully, Chrysler covered it under warranty. I don't trust it though, and honestly expect the thing to detonate someday.
