Some 2014-2018 Mazda3 vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission may exhibit a squeak noise from the right front driveshaft at the transaxle. The concern is likely to occur when driving at speeds between 37-50 mph with the ATF at normal operating temperature.
This bulletin applies to 2011-2013 Jeep Compass and Patriot vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine and either the Continuously Variable Transaxle or the Continuously Variable Transaxle with Off-Road Crawl Ratio. Customers may say they hear a clatter or rattle noise coming from the engine on initial start after a long cold soak. The MIL may also be on, and DTC P050B (cold start ignition timing performance) may be set.
