Drivetrain hesitation and bucking

Good evening, I have a 2014 Jeep Patriot with approx 60k miles on it. Recently the vehicle started to hesitate and buck when accelerating, when coasting and reapplying the gas and especially on hills. I took it to the dealer where it has been for the past month with no resolution. They can duplicate the problem and have done a driveability upgrade and replaced the transmission valve body. They also lubed and adjusted the transmission shift cable. The bucking incidents happen very frequently and feel like several quick studder between shifting. Long story short I'm frustrated without having no vehicle for a month, the investment of several hundred dollars in repairs and no resolution. Has anyone experienced something similar or what might be a cause of this? There are no stored codes or mil on.
