Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

Truckie,
My radio was replaced last month. I'm in Texas. Supposedly there is a recall coming in November for all JGC and Dodge Ram Trucks to fix crashing dashboards. My dealer didn't know about it today but we might have fixed my rattle. The cowling under the hood had come lose from the metal frame. He popped it back in and insulated it so hopefully it won't pop back out.

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

Hi "guys",

Just spent the day at the dealer. I have to say they seemed to give it a shot... but failed. In fact, I thought it was better during the last of the 3 test drives, but rattling again this morning.

Stuff they checked/adjusted included - all the obvious insulated cables, the engine cover (found a corner area marked by vibration added a rubber pad), all the cables under the cover, etc.

Truckie - any luck?

Thanks again - this forum has been helpful.

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

My truck goes back in the week of the 27th.
It is the earliest the engineer tech person can make it...

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

So the engineer dude came out to check out my truck.
I was told that it is the normal sound of the JGC Limited. A rattle.
I am so disappointed with Chrysler. 41K and that's that!
They really released a truck that has a rattle? Really?
It's bullshit.
No I have another decision to make...

Wow, I was hoping for a better outcome from him. That sucks. Did he say what is was. Perhaps any of the fixes we all had tried?

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

I am going back to dealer tomorrow to drive a couple of JGC Limiteds to see if they have the same noise. I was so upset when they told me over the phone that this was the end of the line to ask, "so where is the noise actually coming from?" I will be asking that one tomorrow for sure.
Yes, it does suck.

I think you had reported that you drove a new one a few months ago and it was pretty quiet...bummer. You will prob have the same results tomorrow. Mine started @ day 1. But others have reported that it was after a few hundred miles. Do you have 4x4? Mine is 4x4 built in late March.

Yes, I did drive a new one a couple of months back and no noise.
I guess I'm going back for my own head.
I'll have a list of what they tried to fix the issue too.

I feel your pain, I experienced the same thing that you did with jeep and I'm extremely dissatisfied... make sure that you give them the lowest ratings on all their surveys, don't just dismiss them. It's the only way they are going to learn.

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

I have a question...does this noise also happen on the 8 cylinder limited too?
I have been told that it is the exhaust...I'm not so sure about that.....

Re: 2014 V6 Rattle?

My my14 CRD Overland also had a rattle, which sounded like a tractor, after a week and a half at the dealership, they fixed the issue by doing a tcm update for the fuel mapping, not before they stated it was a normal diesel rattle, tested injectors, reset gearbox mapping, oh and scratched the steering wheel, 8k to replace, still waiting on the replacement though. After threatening to tweet my experience with the brand new Jeep, they were much more compliant and willing to investigate the matter.
