05 Grand Cherokee Whining Noise - Pls Help !!

Hi - 1st Jeep I have owned - Grand Cherokee with Hemi. The car is great, generally. I live in New England and it's a fantastic snow car. One problem: there has been a whining since day one that gets louder as you go faster (only when accelerator is on - not coasting so nothing to do with tires). Have had it in 3 times to dealer - tried several things including some trans problem, supposedly. Nothing has worked. Whine is pretty bad - dealer doesn't dispute it but hasn't been able to fix it. Wife wants to dump it. Any one had similar problems and ESPECIALLY if you have found a solution? If I don't find something soon I will be a former Jeep owner. Thanks in advance for any help / advice.

Welcome to the forum
Check www.wkjeeps.com under the TSB section there are couple of TSBs for whining noises. The big one is for the power steering system. Mine does the same thing I just haven't brought it in for it - too lazy I guess.
