During turning, squeaks can come from the strut area; the strut mount assembly should be replaced.
Noise coming from the front suspension can be caused by the front sway bar; the sway bar bushings should be replaced.
Worn seals inside the transmission may cause problems with upshifting and downshifting in automatic transmissions.

Timing cover oil and coolant leaks and front crankshaft oil seal leaks are common on high-mileage vehicles. Always replace the timing chain and cam sprocket at the same time.

If the front hanger makes contact with the spring, you may hear a squeak in the rear suspension; this is often misdiagnosed as a problem with the leaf spring.
A faulty rear automatic temperature control (ATC) may cause problems with the instrument cluster illumination; the unit should be replaced.
On vehicles equipped with "stow and go" seating, the locking hinge might not hold when opening the load floor door. The middle floor doors should be replaced.
A loosening (or loss) of the nut retaining the engine cooling module fan can cause a vibration. If not addressed promptly, the fan blade may not turn, causing the engine to overheat. A revised engine cooling module fan retaining nut kit has been released.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.  
Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.
If the seal is not properly lubricated, the moon roof (sunroof) can make noise.
AWD-equipped vehicles can show a wide range of transmission problems; usually, the wrong-sized tires are being used. Be sure that all the tires are the same and that all four are replaced at the same time. Dodge recommends tire rotation every 7,500 miles.
