Rattle Trap

My 2015 JGC Overland is driving me crazy with all of the rattle noises. I've scheduled an appointment at the dealership to have them look into it, but I was just curious if I'm the only one.
  • Driver side A pillar/dash: Only happens around mid acceleration. Sounds like a guitar string vibrating.
  • Console: Squeak comes and goes for no apparent reason. Almost sounds like it is rubbing against a seat, but doesn't go away except when opening the lid.
  • Liftgate: This only started after removing the panel to remove the tail lights. It is just a constant rattle unless driving on very smooth roads.

Re: Rattle Trap

Just hit 50k miles on our Jeep. The only time it rattles is when we take it out of a cool garage and drive it/park it in the summer sun for a while. The heat makes everything pop randomly (especially the panoramic sun roof) as it all expands.

Re: Rattle Trap

That's strange that yours would be making so much noise. My 2014 is dead silent.

Rattle Trap

2014 Summit with 36k miles and quiet as a church. If yours is as bad as you say it is, I'd park it at the dealers until they fix it. The indicator that it was someone's science project is your statement that the tailgate started rattling after disassembly. Sure sounds like yours was taken apart and not put back together correctly.

Re: Rattle Trap

Damn, mine is super quiet and I am going to have to remove the rear tailgate panel to switch my reverse lights to LED soon. Fingers crossed!

Re: Rattle Trap

Have a 2011, 19K miles, terrible rattles from something underneath. Dealer claims they can't hear and it is out of warranty when it started.

I'm 90% positive I have found the culprit(s), but don't know how to fix. All those damn small heat shields with no rubber isolation. Bend them around and the noise changes or goes away for a couple days. Temperature of the exhaust/vehicle changes how much it rattles . I see why the dealer claims they don't hear, probably no way to actually fix. Screws are located where they get high heat, so not sure I can find a rubber to put in between that won't burn up. Like a bunch of tuning forks tacked on all over the place. Seems like bad design and I have not seen on other cars I have owned before.

Can only hear with the windows down, so I guess Jeep can enjoy the bad advertising as it rattles like a rust bucket down the street but is still the current body style being made.
