Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Is this a 4wd?

Has the mechanic checked the run out on the rotors? do you get any vibrations the the steering wheel? when you brake at 70 mph does the car shake? does the steering wheel shake?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Claim they did. Only slight vibration at breaking during 60-80mph. No steering wheel shake
Jeep Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

it sound like they are throwing parts at something and not doing any real diagnosing, this all should be free as well, I would think the 2015 would also be covered under warranty?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
56,000 miles so powertrain warranty only.
The howling noise only became present one week ago.
Jeep Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 9 months ago

I would suspect the rotors or brakes, sounds like they have checked everything else
