Clicking sound when braking

Asked by Aug 30, 2016 at 11:58 AM about the 2016 Jeep Cherokee Sport FWD

Question type: General

I bought a new 2016 Jeep Cherokee in Jan. and it makes a clicking sound
when I'm slowing down to a stop. It's not continuous, it's just one click-type
sound as I'm slowing down. I'm getting the run-around from my dealership,
they have replaced rotors which did nothing,  they say they don't know
what it is, and have suggested that I need to put more KMs on it to "work
out the kinks". They've also said that the transmission computer "learns
how you drive" and the click could be it trying to decide what gear to put it
into. Everything they've said sounds like complete BS but I also know
nothing about cars and this is the first new car I've ever owned. Any input
would be much appreciated!

Take it to another dealership.

I’m having the same issue with my 2015 Cherokee

I have the same single clicking noise when stopping. It's faint when starting again, too. I've noticed that the click is gone; however, when I turn off the ESC. I have an appointment with my dealership in a couple weeks for this.
