brake problem?

im on my 350mile now. (approaching a stop light) the problem is when i'm starting to step on the brakes and slowly putting in pressure, the jeep slows down (obviously) then suddenly you'll feel like the break slips then again the brakes engage then you further slow down and stop.
the brake slip (as I call it) is about spit second long when your still stepping on the breaks.
happened to me 3x now since I got my limited on the Dec 20th

I have similar issues sometimes, when braking. I think in my case, its the adaptive learn botching the downshift. In my case, it feels like rather than downshifting from 3-2-1, it gets confused and and goes from 3-2-3-2-1 - or something like that. I'm certainly no expert. It feels like the transmission downshifting is assisting in the slowing of the car, then it stops briefly, and resumes again. I don't feel anything in the brake pedal.

Not sure if this is relevant to you or not, just thought I'd share. And of course I can't get it to do it when the dealer test drives it. They think I'm a lunatic.
