AUBURN HILLS (WKZO) -- After months of delays, Chrysler has begun shipping the new Jeep Cherokee to dealers.  The distribution of the SUV's has been put off due to problems discovered with the vehicle's new nine-speed automatic transmission.

Chrysler officials say trucks of the new Jeep were rolling out of the Toledo factory Tuesday morning.  The company said no vehicles would be sent to dealers until they were sure the vehicle met customer expectations for performance, refinement and quality.

Chrysler began building the vehicles in the summer and was holding approximately twelve-thousand models at the factory and other locations in Ohio and Michigan.
