AUBURN HILLS (WKZO) -- Chrysler has delayed the shipping of more than twelve-thousand 2014 Jeep Cherokees.

According to officials, the automaker is holding off on sending the vehicles to dealers until it can resolve a problem with the programming of the Jeep’s new nine-speed transmission.  Chrysler is reportedly still trying to get the transmission to shift smoothly, more than three months after the vehicle went into production.

Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has called the new Jeep a make-or-break vehicle for the automaker.
