Got a new 2015 Jeep GC WK2 about 2 months ago. 2,700 miles.

While accelerating in a right turn, there is intermittent buzzing / vibration. It's almost like a tire rubbing on a fender, but at a higher frequency. (Nothing rubbing that I can tell). It seems to be coming from the front left of the car / behind the steering wheel.

Its related to wheel speed, not engine speed (can't do it in park).

Only on right turns. It also only happens if you're accelerating - coasting through a turn is no problem. You can even stop, turn the wheel, and step on the gas and it will do it.

Thanks for any ideas!

Yeah, I checked PS fluid (It was fine). Its not really a whining noise though. I know the GC has a weird PS system - no mechanical connection to hydraulics or something like that.

If you can replicate it take it back to dealer

This, unless it's a V8. Is it a V8 OP? I'm assuming it's a V8 as you said you checked the fluid. The V6 has an electric unit and no fluid to check.
