I have a late build 2017, admittedly with low miles (around 4,500). I have not experienced any rough shifting or the big jolts that been reported by others. The shifts are smooth and imperceptible for the most part and downshifts as appropriate. I find this transaxle much better than the six speed in my old 2012 Town and Country. I do miss the “Electronic Range Selector” on the 2012.
