'13 JKU in auto stick shift mode works fine downshifting. Upshifting not reliable. Sometimes it's clicks in sometimes not. Full automatic mode all is good.. Jeep dealer didn't even have a guess. Any thoughts? TIA!

I don't think it's that great to begin with in all honesty. I tried mine once and felt it was clunky at best, since it's not a true DCT transmission or anything.

I assume it's not throwing any codes or anything? Have you considered taking it to a speciality transmission shop? This will be tough to diagnose without special tools.

Actually, I enjoy using it. 9 mile windy mountainous approach to my place. I have an appt at a tranny shop on Monday. Just trying to do my homework first. Thanks for the reply

Let us know what they say. One of the real pain in the butts when it comes to these JKs it that since they are so electronic based, it makes diagnosing them really tough without the right tools.
