Did you have a similar problem? Is it a big deal to get fixed?

I don't have my WK2 yet, just suggesting what I think the issue is based on some readings. (quotes taken from www.wk2jeeps.com)

Quote:
Anti-lock Brake System with rough-road detection: Anti-lock brake system is capable of detecting if the vehicle is driving on a rough road by the oscillations in the wheel speed signals. Rough road is detected on off-road surfaces or trails, and ABS enters a different pressure control where it will hold the brake pressure for longer pulses
Quote:
Brake Traction Control System (BTCS): Helps to keep driving wheels from spinning during acceleration from a stop or during slow speeds by applying individual brakes to the slipping wheel(s)
Quote:
Electronic Stability Control (ESC): Enhances driver control and helps maintain directional stability under all conditions. Provides the benefit in critical driving situations such as turns, and is valuable when driving on mixed surface conditions including snow, ice or gravel. If there is a discernible difference between driver input through the steering wheel and the vehicle’s path, ESC applies selective braking and throttle input to guide the vehicle back on to the driver’s intended path
Quote:
Rain Brake Support: Uses the ESC pump to occasionally push brake pads lightly against brake rotors in rainy conditions in order to keep rotors dry
Quote:
Ready Alert Braking: Anticipates situations when the driver may initiate an emergency brake stop and uses the ESC pump to set brake pads against rotors in order to decrease the time required for full brake application
As you can see, there's a whole lot going on in the system and this may simply be expected behavior (meaning there's nothing to fix).

Re: Horrible front end noise

Very happy to report that this was a pretty minor problem. The drive shaft was not tight and it was contacting the heat shield. Took them about 5 minutes to fix and have not had any other problems with it.

Re: Horrible front end noise

My Jeep jus started making a similar noise, It sounds like i am dragging a line of tin cans behind the Jeep. I read the post, and i am hoping that it is rock stuck up somewhere, However, It comes and goes, pretty upset that i have had the Jeep for 3 Months and it has been to the dealership 5 times, now about to be 6

Re: Horrible front end noise

Sounds like you have a heat shield hitting the drive shaft. There have been a few with that problem. Should be an easy fix.

Thanks man, that sounds like a possibility. The noise did stop without me doing anything! if it comes back i will check out the heat shield.

Re: Horrible front end noise

I'm hoping it's the same issue you guys are facing sucks that the sound is present in any driving under 25mph is it similar to this:
