Vibrating 08 Still Under Warranty!!
Iíve been reading threads on here for about 2 years now and finally registered so I can ask a question or two. I have an 08 commander with the ever so common vibrating issue. It has had this issue for almost three years! Thatís the reason Iíve read EVERY thread on here concerning vibrating. Things that have been done are front propeller shaft changed (twice), rear drive shaft changed, front hubs changed, front diff completely rebuild, chrome clad wheel repeatedly road forced balance with new tires of course, and likely some things Iíve forgotten about along the way. The issue started at about 37K and I now have 70K. So here is the great news and the one thing that seems to separate me from every other person on here complaining about vibrating issues. I bought my jeep brand new so I still have a lifetime powertrain warranty AND I even bought the lifetime bumper to bumper warranty!! So everything has been covered and will continue to be until itís fixed.
So my question or thought perhaps; Iím convinced that my issue is a faulty torque converter (TC) as my vibrating happens as soon as the TC locks up after changing gears at low RPMs. Iíve repeatedly told this to the dealer but they refuse to change it because they say there is no way to know for sure and canít do such a big job without a defiant know issue with the TC. So how do Iíve convince them to change it? Thanks for any input!! Dan
