Transmission clunks when shifting to park

Very loud clunk when i shift from drive to park or drive to neutral. If i slam it to park very fast tere is less noise, but if done normally it is very loud.

I have a 2012 overland with 5.7 v8 with 3000 miles. Bought december 2011. It has done this since new but seems to be getting worse.

Anyone else see this problem?

Re: Transmission clunks when shifting to park

Yes, it's another "known problem, no fix" issue. Mine does it, ekaz's gf car does it, been to the dealer (same dealer) a few times and all they can do is document it. Chrysler is aware that it is a growing issue. Sucks that a 40k+ car has to sound like this.

Mine is doing this as well. I just posted a topic thread on it as well.

Any news from the dealer on this?

Re: Transmission clunks when shifting to park

Me too.. It does it unless I stop, pause and then switch. No rushing and it seems to disappear. Anyone else with the same result?

I went to the dealer a day after mine started doing that and they did a free software update. Sorry I don't have more details.

Re: Transmission clunks when shifting to park

so does this mean that until the tsb is released there's nothing to be done to fix the clunk and jerk? great name for a bank by the way.

The advance info just lists the 2012 model year, it's possible that 2011 could also be listed when the bulletin is released, or maybe at a later time.
