Question 2013 Chrysler 6 cyl 8 Speed ZF

Great car and all, except the following two issues:

1. At 31.000 Miles transmission feels like kicking right before complete stop.
otherwise very smooth shifting up/down gears until stopping for example at red light, for lack of better description I feel trans. jerking? kicking ?
I searched many forums some had suggested re-learning procedure?
your input is greatly appreciated.

2. Those headlights with dimmed Halogen don't make any sense. On open country roads , I think LOW beams are way much better than this lousy mechanical HIGH beams.
Many threads on HID upgrades/retrofits with conflicting views where an upgrade may cause electrical problems, blinding others etc . to solve this safety issue, if it possible to install complete OEM headlights? Housing and bulbs same the limited editions I think.

Note:
With these features or luxury, one thinks it ought to illuminate a straight roadway sufficiently to see a human being, bicyclist or a deer up to 300 feet at minimum. No?

Hay BilB,
Regarding your transmission issues you should consider having the dealer "reflash/refresh" the software. Something is not right here.

Hi CoolbreezeNYC1,

Sorry to hear about this! If you decide to visit a certified dealership for further diagnosis I'd be happy to offer assistance if needed, just send us a PM with your VIN and let me know.
