2011 Laredo x sloshing sound
Love our new GC but hey what is that sloshing sound? I realize the larger gas tank is about square under and accross the back half of the vehicle but why am I hearing a profound liquid in motion sound, when driving, ESP. Backing up from a clean start. Even with a full tank...anyone?

Refer to TSB 14-002-11

if you hear a sloshing sound when the fuel tank is 7/8 to 5/8 full. you should go to your local dealership and tell them about it. they usually replace the fuel tank unit.

the reason for the sound is that there are just not enough lateral and horizontal baffles to muffle the sound in the fuel tank when under hard to moderate breaking.

i had this problem, drove me nuts. for me it was about 4" of water under the driver seat. if you have rubber floormats, pull them up and see if the carpet is wet. i pulled my seat, the carpet and plastic floor board out and there is was. i pulled the drain plugs and dried it out with a towel.

sounded 100% exactly like your description
