    So, I'd have to buy that unit entirely ... ? More $$$, I feel like I'm owning a boat already :LOL:. The good part is that I see nifty 3rd party replacements - this might be a nice worthy upgrade.

    Time to pimp some ...

    head unit is where you insert CD and adjust radio station, I replace it with aftermarket head unit to get rid of the static + high pitch noise. You can even get a double din head unit with GPS + backup camera + Android OS for a few hundred bucks, fits and looks just like the stock JBL unit !!!

    Simply an extremely irritating whine for people with sensitive ears. My car didn’t do this when I first bought it (2013) now its constant.

    No, what recall? And I brought it to the dealer for the sound and they couldn’t really hear it. They said they had their specialists look at it and they said the sound was normal. I feel like they would have told me if there was a recall that I could apply.

    You really mean constant? There can be a whine when you’re decelerating, more so if you’re braking too. But that’s not constant, just during the described conditions.
