Brand New 2012 with Weird Noise...Help
 
Hey guys, Im new to the forum.
We just recieved our 2012 JGC Limited 4x4 3.6L that I ordered just in time for a vacation trip. We just got back from the 4 day trip and we have noticed something weird about our Jeep. It seems that it makes a moaning noise sometimes when you put it into reverse and also makes a lighter moaning noise with vibration felt through the steering wheel sometimes when you come to a stop and sit for a minute.
First I thought it was the a/c comressor, but it seems to do it without the a/c on too.
We also niticed that the Jeep tends to lug itself down a bit during acceleration. Like it skips a gear after a stop. It takes off good, shifts, and immediately shifts to a higher gear which lugs the Jeep down quite a bit.
I read all the tsbs posted in here, but they dont seem to apply to my vehicle since it was built this month.
Does anyone else have any of these issues? Any help will be MUCH appreciated!!

Thanks,
Jon

Guess no one has had this issue. Maybe its something simple then. Dealer said they have not heard of this problem and scheduled the car in for Wednesday. Ill let you guys know.

First thing I'd do is check the trans fluid level, if air gets in the lines it will carry on cranky.

I have been experiencing a violent vibration/moaning sound when the AC is on. It will occur when idling, coasting, or accelerating.

Does it sound like its the exhaust. If it is mine also does that in reverse and mine was also built this month. As far as the lug down you talk about the trans is programmed for fuel milege and does upshift quick sometimes if you don't have you foot in it. Its normal for the 3.6.

Mine was built in March of this year and I experienced similar vibration however I've only noticed it when I'm going in reverse and backing out very slowly.

There might be a TSB that fixes this issue. Have a look here: http://wk2jeeps.com/wk2_tsb.htm

Did you ever get this noise issue resolved. I have the same wierd sound when i steer when reversing. It seems steering related on start up.

I do not have this problem. Might it be related to the electric power steering in the 2012's?

I just got a 2012 Jeep 4x4 Laredo and I'm having the same issue. Has anyone come up with a solution? I'm wondering if it's the quadratrack I malfunctioning. Mine feels like it's in the brakes and it makes a loud groaning sound when I sit with my foot on the brake for a while.

I haven't been able to reproduce it all the time, but it seems like it's mostly when I'm stopped.
