WK2 JGC Limited, '14 with 35k miles, V6, tow package.
I am the second owner and recently puchased the vehicle.
Within a day of driving off the lot, I noticed that the rear shocks made a horrible clunking noise when driving over bumps at low speeds. These forums helped identify the problem as a defect in the design of the load-leveling rear shocks that came on models with the tow package. Printed the TSB, dealer installed the "new" designed shocks under warranty and sound is gone.
Now when I drive the same speed (below 30mph) over bumps, around turns and uphill, there is a noticeable click or knocking after every bump/crack/rough pavement. It seems to be emanating from the driver's side of the vehicle, from the suspension near the pedals, but I can't pinpoint it.
Took back to dealer, they said the front sway bar needed replacement. Performed the replacement but the sound is still there and getting more frequent.
I don't feel any vibration in the steering column, nor from the dashboard, and I checked and don't think my model has the rattling fastner problem ala TSB 19-001-13
One other clue is that it doesn't seem to make the noise when it rains and the car is wet. Odd.
I've included some audio here for you to listen. I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem? The other videos of strange noises don't seem to match my sound it's pretty distinct.
Any ideas at all would be helpful. I'm just out of warranty and this is ruining the experience of owning a "luxury" SUV.
