Recently in another thread regarding 5 speed transmission whine I posted the service history and repair costs for the 5 speed manual transmission in my 2012 Limited 4X4.

My first rebuild was done at 117,000 km (73,000 miles) and this week I just had a second rebuild completed at 127,000 km (79,000 miles).

The transmission had not been serviced or had fluid changed prior to the first rebuild at 117,000 km, but the transmission shop did not believe this was the cause of any issues.

Without any obvious mechanical failures or indicators of what originally caused the problems, the shop’s diagnosis was low quality parts from Chrysler.

I would be interested to hear from anyone else who has had their 5 speed transmission rebuilt, what your mileage was at the time it was done, and if you have had any issues since.

I would very much like to continue driving this vehicle, but have lost confidence in the transmission, and I’m really not interested in making any more repairs to the drivetrain.

Any experiences or insight regarding the Patriot’s 5 speed would be much appreciated.
