Is just one review, and at https://www.google.com/search?q=+2015+Jeep+Cherokee+Trailhawk+4WD+&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 -- there are a dozen more and no transmission complaints

To be honest Jeeps have a weak automatic transmission, but they can be fixed, now the trail hawk is still too new for the aftermarket guys to get involved yet, I'm sure TransGo will come out with a fix for the tranny, I know they did for my Grand Cherokee, put it in and it has been fine ever sense. Right now the best thing a guy can do for his tranny is bypass the cooler in the radiator and put on a nice big auxiliary cooler, but check with the dealer first you don't want to void your warranty with auxiliary equipment.

Yup. It’s true for me. I absolutely love my Jeep but at 48,000 km I randomly got a ‘SERVICE TRANSMISSION’ and ‘SERVICE PARK BRAKE’ error message. It’s now happened two weeks in a row. First attempt they updated a computer code. Second time they replaced the computer. I’m sos cares it’s going to keep happening
