Humming/vibration/weird sound

Last night on my 90 mile trip back home I heard a weird noise coming from I think the left side of my v6 4x4 limited... Sunroof was open.. Slowed down rolled window down to listen and turned radio off.. Still heard this humming vibration or rubbing sound.. So I pull off.. Get out take a look, don't see anything... Decide to keep going. Left te radio off to listen for the next 15 miles. Don't hear anything. So I continue on my remaining 60 miles of my trip without hearing the strange noise again...

Any ideas what could of caused this or why it would just go away after stopping, putting it in park and looking around the vehicle? It has 3200 miles on it...

Re: Humming/vibration/weird sound

Well, keep an ear out for a bad wheel bearing. If you swerve back and forth in a parking lot or on a deserted road, the sound from a failing bearing might come and go.

It was a winding road... So I was kinda "swerving". Thanks for the input.. If it is a wheel bearing this early, jeep will be sold...

You're kidding, right? I had one go bad at about 12,500 miles. Sometimes, you get a bad one. It happens. Both front wheel bearings were replaced under warranty. It wasn't a big deal.

Kidding no not at all... If I had to replace something like that so early what happens at 50k? I am a "Chrysler doesn't have a very good reliability" type of guy that was skeptical on purchasing one... I have 2 other vehicles that NEVER needed a thing replaced in their 60+k and 115k miles... Nothing... Yes I would sell my jeep if it needs a wheel bearing with 3200 miles on it.. Guaranteed

Re: Humming/vibration/weird sound

Don't feel too bad. I noticed the vibrating and thumping noise at 60 miles on my 2012 Grand Cherokee. The problem is getting worse. After hearing about so many bearing problems with other people, I think that this is a manufacturing defect in the Jeeps.

Re: Humming/vibration/weird sound

This thread makes me think I have a similar problem...when accelerating to freeway speeds around 55-65 there is a slight vibration/road noise. I always attributed it to tire harmonization but my jeep also has developed a clicking noise when turning at full lock. That I thought could be an issue with the suspension but now it makes sense that that could be the bearing as well. Guess its time to schedule an appointment.

Re: Humming/vibration/weird sound

THe noise or vibration or rubbing I described in the OP is NOT the 60mph vibration from the other threads.. I started one of those ones too...this sound was NOT the same as the 60mph 2k rpm one. I get that one ALL the time and chalked it up to being normal..even know it shouldn't be... The sound I describe in this thread is more of a rubbing sound and it was happening at any speed then just went away after I stopped to look around the vehicle ..

Re: Humming/vibration/weird sound

Ok everyone. Crazy thing happened today. Inlaws made trip to our house on the same road I experienced this sound.. Turns out they stopped in the same exact spot as I did looking for a reason for the sound in their highlander... So I would say we are safe tO say it is the road causing the sound and not the jeep... Weird since I have traveled that road MANY times and there has been no new road construction or change in the roadway for yrs.. But we both on 2 seperate occasions experienced the same sound... Glad to know it was not the jeep..
