I have a 2004 3.5 SE with 5A/T just hit 30,000 miles and after driving home 2.5 hrs with no problems the wife drives to the store and there is a growling noise from the driver front. Sounds like a bad wheel bearing or something. I jacked up the driver front with vehicle in N and spun the wheel only to hear a slight ticking noise from the trans. The noise does increase with vehicle speed but not with RPM. Appt with the dealer is scheduled for 9am tomorrow. Has anyone had this problem and what did they replace, I just expect to get the run around from the dealer. and yes I have the warped rotor thing and the lift gate problems.
