Whining/humming sound at 45 mph up to about 65 mph when gas pedal is pressed. When coasting, the sound goes away. Having the pinion gear in the differential replaced, which supposedly will fix the problem, or so the Chrysler dealer tells me...glad it's under warranty.
78,000 miles and whining noise started about a year ago. One dealer said it was inherent in the vehicle. Now a second dealer is also telling me the problem is inherent after replacing the drive shaft (which was under warranty) and the noise is still there.
Above 60mph a varying whiny noise can be heard ... not at lower speeds. The tone varies slightly depending on summer or winter tires. Dealer has suggested a rear differential rebuild.
