Yeah she had a 99 cherokee classic. (which she loved) And obviously felt the same way you do about the new Liberty. To answer your question I was told it was total miles on the vehicle. She now has a little over 4,000 on it and it corrected itself before the 4500 mark. I was told the flash needs a little bit to see how you drive the vehicle to know how to correct it properly. YOU MUST HAVE THE FLASH UPDATE INSTALLED FOR THAT 4500 MILE MARK TO BE VALID! The Chrysler rep had explained the vibration to us to have something to do with the gear box or ratios or something that has to do with the vehicle trying to save you gas. I would tell them now that you have found all sorts of stuff about this flash update and that you want the description of what it is for. They can provide that for you. It is an exact description of your problem. They may not know about it. And if it was a vibration in your exhaust they should be able to fix it no problem! Good Luck and keep me posted!

Doneill I am sorry I can't help you but.....I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM with my 04 Liberty......new tires and brakes and rotors all around and it is occuring more often now. Did you ever find what the problem was?

Hi Kate32, Does your car challenge sound exactly like the one I described? If so, it's a long shot but I found out what the problem was last week! It was my rims. Apparently the owner of the car before me hit something hard enough to damage the rims. While replacing the back two tires last week, once my mechanic took the tires off of the rims, he told me the rims were damaged as if I hit something really hard. It did not make sense to him though, as my two front rims were in perfect condition. There is a crack in one of my back rims, where the tire and rim are connected, which could not be seen until the tires were taken off.
As I drove my car slower, the weight of the vehicle more noticeably shifted around the rim, creating a pulsating creaking/grinding noise.
The bad news... $200+ a rim. Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply but....my tires were rotated all over and even had the spare on At first I was told it was a bad tire. I got new tires and I still have the problem it hasn't done it for two days now. I got new brakes and rotors and nothing is loose.I really think it is a caliper hanging up. I am working 7 days a week and it is my only vehicle so it is hard to get it back in the garage. I guess I will have to just keep replacing parts until I find the problem. No one else ever hears the noise so I feel as though I am being blown off at times by these mechanics. I won't take it to the dealer since I've done that with other vehicles and know all to well the price tag.

#78 of 93 2003 Jeep Liberty 3.7L whining & slipping
Oct 20, 2009 (3:20 pm)
I have a 2003 Liberty which I bought new. I have had so many problems with this vehicle. 2 motors, 3 transmissions (the 1st was replaced at 4000 miles) bearings, air conditioning problems nonstop......etc.
A couple of weeks ago I noticed a growling noise with matching vibration, during acceleration. We checked bearings and differential then changed the fluid in the transfer case because we saw that it was a dark brown color. Growling noise didn't go away. A few days after that, a medium pitched whining noise that sounds like it's coming from the tranny or transfer case area. Few days later, the transmission is slipping.
Any suggestions are very much appreciated.

Have similair sounds from my 05 CRD that I am trying to diagnose. What was outc ome of your problem back in 08? At idle mine is quiet but it screems at higher rpms and seems to come from the rt fwd (looking fwd) area of compartment but no sound when the belt is removed and all the pulleys etc spin free and quiet by hand. Idlers were quoted at $81.00 ea so I'm trying to be cautious. Comments anyone?
#80 of 93 Front end Noise while braking
Jun 26, 2010 (4:11 pm)
I own a 2002 Liberty and recently I have noticed a noise coming from the front while braking. I had my rotors checked and they are fine.
The noise is odd, not metal on metal, kind of a pulsating whine maybe, it is hard to describe.
If you stop hard you don't hear it as much but if you brake slowly the noise starts.
Any thoughts on what this could be would be greatly appreciated.
#81 of 93 Grinding sound 2005 Liberty Renegade
Jan 14, 2011 (11:14 am)
I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade Edition. It has been very well cared for and just went over 100k. We had a major snow storm here in MA on Wednesday. I put it in 4 wheel drive to get through the snow and it seemed to be fine. I never use the 2 low or the 4 wheel drive. After the storm I put it back in the normal gear and now it is having a hard time reversing. I put it in reverse and sounds like it is in neutral and when I turn at very slow speeds (i.e. parking there is a grinding sound). This sound cannot be heard at any other speed. Both issues only occur occasionally and I have no clue what it could be.
At first I thought it could be stuck snow but it is not. Since I do not use the other 2 low or 4 wheel drive could this be a factor? Does anyone have any clue what is going on with it?
Thanks for any help!
