Confirmed: Cherokee fix found

Jeep Cherokees

A firmware fix has been found to work around 2014 Jeep Cherokee transmission-axle interaction issues, and Cherokees are being systematically “flashed” (upgraded with new firmware), tested around a 2-3 mile course, and approved for delivery, according to “The Mad Duck.” The Duck did a fly-by over Manheim Auto’s old lot in Flat Rock, which has been up for sale for some years; the 101-acre paved lot has room for around 3,000 cars, he said. While there, he saw that employees of a logistics company were taking out groups of Cherokees for their test runs after upgrading the firmware. The work seemed to be progressing steadily, but there is a tremendous backlog.

One contributor wrote that all the Cherokees in “shipped to storage” status would be delivered to dealerships next week; depending on how long that takes, dealerships should start seeing full supplies of Cherokees in time to sell a few before November 1.

New Cherokees coming from the Toledo plant are presumably going directly to shipping yards for transport to dealerships across the continent.

For overviews of the Manheim lot, see yesterday’s announcement.
