It's was an honest comment and I stand by it.
Sorry if it was too harsh for your thin skin.
First off you are not sorry, you just being patronizing. No thin skin here, just tired of the kick a person while he is down comments. There is no reason for it and it is not productive. My objective is always to help another to the best of my ability, which includes you. We are all only a breath or one mistake away from being in a similar or worst situation. I standby that.

Trust me when I tell you I'd never look to you for for help.
Tell me..what are you actually going to offer the OP that will be of tangible value here? What are you going to put in practice to lessen the gravity of his situation? Your soft words?
Take your drama some place else. Geez

Why in the world would you accept a vehicle with an active, known leak and then proceed to drive it a long ass distance.
I hate to sound harsh, but from all accounts you earned it.
Irrefutable truths in life:
1. Everything is better with bacon.
2. Angry grills are for douchebags.
3. This.

He may or may not take my advice. That is up to him. As for me, I like this forum. I think I will stay around.

Should have never taken delivery with a known leak........let alone driving it the distance you did.....
So to clarify, I didn’t know it was leaking oil until after I got it to San Diego. I stopped by a family members house on my way home and I saw liquid coming out from underneath and assumed it was just Air Conditioner condensation, as it was well over 100 degrees… after I dropped my Jeep off at the dealer, my family member informs me that there is oil spots on her driveway… so I agree, if I knew it was leaking oil, I never would have made that drive or accepted the vehicle.

Just ask @cosine he knows!

Well that makes a good majority of the previous posts unwarranted, but somewhat entertaining :)
Good luck w/ the repair, and it should be a pretty straightforward R&R.

Now that color changes things.
Best of luck.

In re-reading your post #1...your post above only seems like you’re back-peddling now.

I think the only thing we agree on is the fact that the A8 is TOAST.

My Transmission also went out pretty early, 20,000 miles started getting stuck in 8th gear then shifting super rough. Read the codes it was flashing saw it was transmission started freaking out then I remembered about my warranty and got an $8,000 repair for free!!! I got a brand new transmission now, but I'm starting to hear a slight knock in my back left wheel well when slowing down, becoming more consistent now. So not much luck here with maintenance.

Welcome to the forum.

That’s sucks. These transmissions are tough and durable.

You will need to involve @JeepCares . They will help you deal with your dealer, and open up a case with FCA.

Good luck.
Or as I like to call them @JeepDoesn'tCare

One positive to know, (once a dealership sorts out your problem) is that the ZF-8 transmission design is one of the finest automatics ever built.
Had one in a Ram 1500 Hemi,
Currently have one in a '22 BMW X5,
And have one my '22 Willys.

Is there a way to tell which Trans we have?
