Seeing if anyone else has had an issue like what I've had with my Caliber.
I've been having an issue with my car that has been driving me insane.

When driving it hot weather my car jerks and hesitates constantly (sometimes pretty violently.) It almost feels like a standard automatic transmission when it slips.
No less than three different Dodge dealerships have said there is NOTHING wrong with the car's transmission. And they wont touch the transmission until it's fully broken.

It's almost certainly NOT engine related, as I had major work done on that last year, and it didn't change this problem at all.

The car is under lifetime warranty, so the cost is irrelevant. I just want to get on opinion on if this is truly a transmission problem, and if so, what magic works can I get them to fix it.

You have been to the Dodge dealer. Provided you have a written service receipt with your description of the transmission symptom and their inspection report you should be good. All they can do is check the oil level and clean the cooler fins.
CVT failures show symptoms and get noisy so you should not be stranded. The replacement CVT is $2k + labor covered by warranty.
