2014 KL Body Noise

2014 Limited 2.4L with 18K miles. About 16K miles started to hear creaking/groaning noises generally when turning and/or over bumps. Wife thinks it is coming from panoramic sunroof. I think more from struts/suspension. Can't tell front vs back and when i rock each corner can't hear anything. Going to dealer today. Anyone experience same problem?

Thanks

You might be on to something. There is a TSB out on lubricating the strut mounts. This is very difficult to do because of their location. My dealer chose not to try and lubricate them and instead just replaced them under warranty. No more odd noises.

Re: 2014 KL Body Noise

Have the dealer look for a bulletin on the sunroof. Just had this done on my Cherokee this week. Dealer has to remove the headliner for the fix.

You are mixing up KL with KJ.
