2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Jeep's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Jeep Grand Cherokee? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Grand Cherokee’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Grand Cherokee transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2011 Grand Cherokee’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Jeep. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
