Power Steering Whistle / Whine - Latest?

Has anyone had any luck with this whistle/whine? It's essentially the same "tuning fork" or popeye whistle that I've seen posts about in the past. If you hold your head against the steering wheel you can hear it clearly coming up the column. We've already been down the new pump route. That worked for a little while and then it returned. Pretty much a constant whistle. Can't hear it at speed, but around town/home it is very present.

Jeep is now saying that it is "normal" and that they don't know how to fix it. I'm about ready to just take a bath on this car and get rid of it. I can't stand to drive it at low speeds anymore...

Re: Power Steering Whistle / Whine - Latest?

I have my 2014 Altitude booked into the dealer next Tuesday to address this issue. I checked several other 2015 models on their lot and could not hear the sound or if I did it was so faint it was almost undetectable. In my vehicle it's driving me crazy because it is always there at idle and low speed.

I'll let you know if they come up with anything other than changing the pump.

I've only had this new vehicle a week and the other issue I have is a suspension that sits 3/4" lower on the drivers side, both front and back. That's annoying as well because my vehicle looks quite crooked if your looking at it from the front or back.
