FCA ZF 9HP (9-speed transmission) 2017-2021 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM

Who Is the Manufacturer of the FCA ZF 9HP?

The ZF 9HP48 (9-speed transmission) on Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM vehicles for the years 2017 to 2021 have had noted defects from the manufacturer of these vehicles. This transmission is made by ZF Friedrichshafen AG company, and manufactured in Gray Court, South Carolina. The ZF 9HP48 transmission is used for front-wheel and all-wheel drive types of vehicles.

To understand the ZF transmission, we will need to put on our mechanic’s hat for a few minutes.

ZF Automatic Transmission Defects Can Cause Safety Issues

The ZF automatic transmission is meant to offer the driver a lowered first gear, when it is necessary to have high acceleration from a stopped position. The ZF transmission is meant to work hard during off road use, and tow trailers with a widened gear ratio notation. This shows that there are plenty of gears for the ZF 9-speed transmission to offer fuel economy for the money, but the problems will increase as well.

What Are the Pros and Cons of a 9HP48 Transmission?

The 9HP48 transmission is used by many car manufacturers, such as in the Jeep Cherokee and Honda CRV vehicles. This transmission uses a drive axle and a gearbox as one system, and is essential in front-wheel-drive crossover utility vehicles which have a transversely mounted engine.

The car manufacturers using this type of transmission have to create the software that will allow these transmissions to perform seamlessly. Because different manufacturers adapt the 9HP48 transmission to their vehicles, there is a wide variance of how the transmission actually does work. In this case, it leaves room for defects, which can occur at any time in a vehicle that uses this type of transmission.

  • $2012 Hyundai and Kia $255 million settlement for affected cars for overstating fuel economy of U.S. consumer bought vehicles
