Loud buzzing in rear end of 2013

So, all of a sudden I begin hearing a loud buzzing sound coming from the rear of the GC. Almost sounds as if someone installed a fan in the back which would get louder as speed increased.

During another free oil change/lube at the dealership, I ask them to take a look at it. Turns out that one of the rear wheel/hub bearings is shot already and they had to order a new one.
The part hasnt arrived yet, but looking forward to the repair because the noise is getting very annoying.

Anyway, has anyone else had the same problem?

I guess I should expect these as the Jeep is about 1.5 years old and almost 25k miles on it.

Re: Loud buzzing in rear end of 2013

when you take your foot off the gas does it go away or remain when there is no load being applied? (load being applied meaning accelerate)
so if you accelerate to 50mph and then remove your foot and coast does the noise go away?>

yes, it remains until the vehicle is stopped. It gets louder and softer as the speed changes. If I let my foot off the gas, it will stay there but will get softer as the speed decreases. Dealer says it is a bad bearing and ordered a new one for me. Should have it fixed this week. Hopefully that is the issue.
