    Hello Everyone!
    My daughter has a 2019 Cherokee Limited. She says it "hops" or "grabs" when she makes low speed tight turns ( like when pulling into a parking space ). It almost feels like it is in 4 wheel drive.
    Is this "normal" for how a Cherokee should behave?
    She has an automatic tranny with a 6 cyl.
    Thanks for the help !

    Sounds like the AWD system is activated. On Wranglers the part-time 4WD systems tend to “crab” on while turning on dry pavement. Are all 4 tires the same size or low on air? Does the Cherokee have the optional rear lock? Being a 2019 the warranty should cover the AWD system or at least the diagnostics.
