2013 JKR 7 Days Old and in the Shop

I started getting squeaking noise, (bearing, pulley, pump), and I noticed it 5 days in. I couldn't locate the exact part it was coming from so I took it in and one of the service reps said it sounded like a water pump, like he'd been dealing with this issue a lot.

Is there a known issue with water pumps? This isn't 100% the culprit but just wondering. Waiting to hear back from the dealership.

Bummer...

I should probably turn my stereo down and listen to my engine every now and then....

I was able to hear it int he cab at idle without the stereo on but the first time I heard it was while at a light and I had a car pull up next to on the driver's side.

After driving home from work I got out and I could hear it easily.

Not what I wanted to hear but at least if it's the case I have a crappy rental to drive in on the dealership.
