I have had my Jeep at the dealers 3 times regarding an insanely loud "feedback" that comes from my stereo and speakers with no warning. The radio has been replaced twice and it still happens. The dealership seems dumbfounded. It will happen with no warning and is incredibly startling. It about caused me to wreck the first time it happened. It is sparatic but once it happens it will continue to happen ffor an undetermined amount of time after that. Once the radio is turned off, you may then come back an hour later an it may be fine for a few days, but then all of a sudden it happens again. May be a ground electrical problem but dealership can't find it! still happening...someone help!!!!! also corrosion on my wheels. Only has 20K miles. Not good...other than these problems...I truly enjoy the vehicle.
