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....!

Is this 2011 GC a v8 Hemi with the shudder?

Hi, I had the same problem with my 95 Grand Cherokee and went through
hell and back before I found the problem.
First thing to do is cycle the key three times and then look at the overdrive
light and obeserve if it flashes or not. If it does it is indicating trouble codes:
eg: 2flashe pause 5 flashes would be code 25.
Try that and let me know what you get.

with high voltage. But will try the key thing now.

Ok replaced TPS, everything is working again.
All it took was a little water in it to short it out.
