I am SOOOO disappointed in Chrysler with this problem. This shuttering occurs at exactly 17 MPH in my 2011 GC Limited. They have rebuilt the entire valve body in the transmission, replaced the drive train control module and updated the software as well and I also have lost about 3 MPG!
I have spoken with Chrysler customer service a couple of times and they have told me that they have left my file open on this problem (supposedly that means that they are working on a fix), but nothing yet. The dealer said that they have this with all the Limited models and offered me to drive others (I really don't care if the trucks in their lot shake, rattle and roll --- I just want mine fixed) to feel it for myself and they told me that the cause is that the torque converter is engaging at that speed and this is the cause -- If this is the cause it can be fixed and I think I am being told a load of crap so that they don't have to have a recall and replace all the transmissions in this model (which is something that they have done with overseas models)
As an aside, if you change the drive control between the seats to SPORT vs AUTO, this will cause the shift pattern to change a little and it won't be as noticeable, but that damn vibration is still there ...
LET'S GO CHRYSLER, these are $35 - $50,000 vehicles that you make a ton of money on --- If you cannot afford to get this done right, have FIAT give you the money to fix this problem correctly NOW!

Make sure there are no fluid leaks. It affects the pressure. Pay special attention to transmission cooler lines. They should be bone dry.
Next, check all electrical connections between engine and transmisssion. Make sure no wiring or connectors are contaminated with oil. Sometimes the engine leaks oil and it blows back over the transmission.
If you don't find anything, then I think you have an electrical-mechanical component like a solenoid inside the transmission with an intermittent fault. Unless somebody can diagnose the problem, you will have to do a rebuild.
If your transmission has a computer, check with the dealer about any Tech Service Bulletins or firmware upgrades.
Transmission problems are the worst.
Once you fix the problem, please update the post

Try Dr. Tranny's Shudder Fixx. It is awesome. I buy it inexpensively off eBay and put it in all my vehicles. I have a 2003 Ford Windstar company van - that model of which is known for transmission torque converter issues. Dr. Tranny's has stopped the issues with my Ford and both my Jeep GC and Commander rough shifting. The company responds quickly and thoroughly to any question you have about their extensive and unique product line. Dr. Tranny is perhaps the best kept automotive secret. I learned about it from a transmission expert.

#921 of 1101 99 jgc Laredo 2wd 4.0 137k miles trans not shifting properly
Feb 08, 2012 (8:45 pm)
shifts fine from 1 to 2. as it goes into 3rd it either revs engine as if in neutral or holds gear and tachs out. after a sec either way it shifts into 3rd. it does not always do this. sometime it shifts normal. changed tps, input and output sensor. are there anymore sensors besides the tcm that might cause this? or is it the tcm? any suggestions? if it is the fluid is it alright to change filter and fluid. always heard that would tear up trans if you have not changed it at specified intervals.

I recently purchased a 2011 JGC Limited, in 2 months have put about 7K miles on it. I have been noticing what feels like a studder or shudder when slowly accellerating - like the transmission is slipping or something. I've cancelled a couple of appointments with the dealer - I'm sure these folks won't be able to "notice" it or feel it like I do. It seems to happen when the vehicle is slowly speeding up, or trying to maintain speed at any speed. For example, cruise control at 55, going up a gentle slope - it feels like it's misfiring. I also feel it slip when pulling away from a stop - almost feels like something sliding to the back of a pickup truck bed and hitting the tailgate. If anyone has a solution, or have had success diagnosing this - please post. At this point, I'm just waiting for the tranny to quit - then they can fix it....!
