I was curious about this as well. Information is hard to find but it seems like the MT-88 will be engineered in Germany but manufactured at Getrag's Jiangxi facility in Nanchang, China. That said, it seems like Getrag learned from the MT-82 disaster. The MT-88 will not be based off of the MT-82 but will be a new design.

I hope they don't screw it up! I'm really looking forward to owning another 4wd manual (last one was a 2012 Wrangler).

I have yet to see a Chinese-made Transmission in any car that has lasted more than 50k miles. Again, that’s just my experience. Not too thrilled about this information tbh.

Who was it who once joked that the Made in China stickers were made in Taiwan or Korea, which is why they last longer than the products themselves?

Hopefully this is pure, authentic German.

What about all of the MT-82s that made it past 50k? What other Chinese-built transmissions have had issues?
