Fluttering noise
I attempted to search but nothing came up. I'll be taking my wife's 2011 Overland V8 into the shop tomorrow to have a fluttering noise checked out. It seems to be coming from the front drivers side shock area. It does have the air suspension. It only happens over 65 mph and seems to be loudest between 72-75 mph. It sounds like wind catching a plastic bag under the vehicle or something. I've checked under the vehicle and can't find anything loose. Plus it's strange it only does it over a certain speed.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so what was the cause? I'll be at the dealership in the morning and would love to be able to tell them what to fix rather than spend all day there while they trouble shoot and come up with nothing. Thanks.

Re: Fluttering noise
Were you/the dealer able to figure this one out? Curious as to what is the cause of this issue.

Sounds like the same noise a lot of us are hearing every body describes it a little might be something different but it seems like a lot of us with the 20" rims and quadra 2 trans have a noise that comes from the front end some have had theirs fixed easy some change their under front end noise- humm anyway good luck

Re: Fluttering noise
Had a similar issue on a '12 Overland with less than 1500 miles. There was a sticker attached to the front axle shaft that looked fine when parked, but started to separate from the shaft at higher speeds as the axle rotated. This would then hit some part of the undercarriage and sound like a plastic bag was stuck under the jeep or i had a nail in the tire (although the nail didn't make sense because it couldnt be heard at low speed).
