Dealer Trans Flash DON'T DO IT!!!

Guys I have a 2014 Jeep SRT with 27,000 miles on it. I brought it in for the transmission recall where they program it so you canít get outta the car in gear. After I dropped it off I was driving and when to use my paddle shifters and on the down shift the auto blip where the motor will rev up 500 RPMís and then down shift for a smoother shift is now GONE! In any mode it will not auto blip the gas! Itís been back to the dealer 2 times now and they say there is nothing wrong with it and there is nothing they can do! This is total BS. I loved this fetcher and now I have nothing. Iíve launched a case with Jeep and itís been 8 weeks with no answers or any feedback. Iíve talked to the area rep for Jeep and he could give a shit less about me or my car. Have you guys heard anything about this? They are saying Iím the only guy with this problem and that the car is not supposed to auto blip and it shows nothing in the car manual about it. At this point I hate the Jeep because of the BS. Have you guys heard anything on this???

Crazy..... I am in a situation that if i don't allow them to do my update they will not work on my truck for warranty work. I am fighting it though and refuse any updates. Keep us posted

Yeah don't let them do it. If I can't get mine right I'm going to trade it in. It's just not as much fun as she used to be.

I just had mine updated, the recall and TSB 21-029-16 for TRANSMISSION SHIFT AND DRIVABILITY ENHANCEMENTS (SRT) and my rev-matching still works fine. Not sure why some it doesn't.
