I have a 2014 GC SRT in melbourne, Australia and while I love the car it has the dreaded deceleration whine that I have read about before on these forums. Basically once the car is warmed up if you are coasting off the throttle you can hear a loud whistle/whine type noise that disappears the instant you apply any throttle or when the car slows to very low speed.
It had the problem from new and after the car had done around 1500km I took it in to the dealer. A technician went out with me for a drive and noted the noise. I left the car with the dealer and they called me back to say they couldn't reproduce the noise on the dyno. They said they were going to contact Chrysler in America and would get back to me.
They never did. After about 5 calls to the dealer I gave up. Meanwhile the noise seemed to be reducing in volume so I thought hey lets just give it some time.
Now the car has 8500km and the noise is worse than ever. I just find it infuriating and it is ruining my enjoyment. I'm locked into a finance agreement but I don't think I would ever buy a jeep again if they can't fix this.
I read on this forum that some owners in America had front prop shafts changed and this fixed it but it seems this was last year and I can't find any updates. Can anyone confirm this for me? I am planning to go back to the dealer but I want to be armed with knowledge about the problem first.
Many thanks to anyone who can help
