I Cant quite remember where I read it , but the general Gist was that Jeep were disappointed with the new 2.2 -6 speed set up . Although more power & torque are available , the whole system did not seem as robust as the previous 2.0 VW CRD-6 speed. Certain components in the engine / gearbox are prone to early ware/breakage.
Perhaps a lot more testing / reseach should have been done!!
Just swapped red Classic X , for, Green Auto SE " Spirit " 2.5 Petrol Limited edition X still 4x4,
