Any Idea What's Wrong?

When backing up slowly, I feel a vibration. It's like a grinding feeling when reversing out of a parking space or my garage. Any idea what this could be? It's not consistent but is starting to do it more often.

Second issue. Especially bad in the winter months. My front end is extremely squeaky/creaky going over dips or speed bumps.

2015 3.6 Overland 4x4

Any help is appreciated

The grinding scrapping feeling when first starting off sometimes after the car has been sitting can be small amounts of surface rust on the rotor surfaces. It ususally scrapes off the first couple times you apply the brakes. The more days a car sits with out use the more noticable it can be or it can be more noticable in humid and salty enviroments. If thats what you are hearing, its just something that can happen and nothing to be concerned about.

^I don't think that's what happens. It feels like it's coming from underneath the vehicle. Where I live (New Mexico) it's very dry so I don't think humidity is a factor. And I drive it everyday.

Re: Any Idea What's Wrong?

If it's a groaning type sound then I believe a lot of Jeeps do it. I know every Wrangler does. My GC does not though which it shouldn't for the amount we pay.

Yeah it's a very deep groaning with a slight vibration. My 2014 was problem free but this one has a ton of little issues.

Re: Any Idea What's Wrong?

I know with my Wranglers it was temperature and humidity affected.
