Vehicle makes grinding noise...Chrysler unable to diagnose problem. Wheel bearing replaced, driveshaft replaced, motor mount shim machined and installed...to no avail. Chrysler now believes it could be the front differential. Chrysler is basically experimenting with vehicle in hopes that noise will go away. I have requested that the vehicle be returned to Chrysler (through vehicle buy back program). Long term reliability and safety of vehicle questionable at this time. Drivetrain has been determined to be cause of problem.
