Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I have a '14 and I could have sworn I heard the dreaded sloushing sounds but actually thought it was my imagination because the truck is so new. Now I really need to check this out based on this thread. Geez. If this is in fact the case, I will be livid.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I am very concerned that the '14 has the same issues. That will really piss me off, specifically because Jeep has been aware of it for at least 3 years.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

If your radio is on or someone is talking with you, you might not notice it. Make everything quiet, get in the driveway or other smooth surface. Drive forward 10 feet or so and step on the brake. The speed doesn't have to be fast -- just enough to force the water back on mild acceleration and then back the other way upon braking. The sound is pretty much unmistakeable.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I am absolutely going to do this tonight. Man, if I do hear the sloushing sound, I am going to go ballistic. Especially since I got out of a perfectly good Toyota Sequoia to get into the '14 GC.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

My car sounds like i'm in a bath tub. It had about 2 gallons of rain water underneath passanger side. Pulled the plug and it all came out. However the driver side has a more difficult plug so I will take it to dealer.

Design defect rain water getting in.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

FXAFELIX called it!. The service guy at the dealership diagnosed the water collection as the result of a failed sunroof drainage system and planned to have to remove the emergency brake to access the correct panel as well as the seat and carpet. When I took my GC to get the work done, I carried a copy of FXAFELIX's pics and some of this thread describing what other owners had experienced. When I picked up my GC, the service guy said that the problem was, in fact, the ac condensate drain. Problem solved! I hope!

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

Unfortunately, my car does not have a sun roof, so I don't know where the rain is getting in. It is also full of ants, must have been parked under a tree or something for a while. Any suggestions?

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I thought I was going nuts until I felt like I was in a bathtub. I am very upset, I hope tomorrow they have some answers!

If you do have water just pull the little plug and you will be amazed at how much water is in there.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

2014 GC Summit, built in March. Heard the sloshing sound for the first time today. We've been having a crazy amount of rain over the past week. Going to pull the plugs as soon as it stops raining and will have the a/c and sunroof drains checked out as well.

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

Went to the dealer, they said the a/c hose gets kinked and clogged they have had it happen before. I will take it back Wednesday and they are providing me with a rental.

Thank you for the A/c tip!
