Well, finally had to get Chrysler involved. Took it back to the second dodge service place and test drove it the next day in the morning with tech and service manager in back. They were fight any problems and finally heard the noise. So rental car for me and they still don't know what is wrong. They are calling tech support. Good lord!

they're gonna be chasing this one...sounds really vague...bet-ya a dollar they come back and say they couldn't duplicate the problem. The best way to find something like that is have someone else drive your car and listen from outside the car. You'd be surprized how movement can redirect noise from inside the car. As soon as it warms up, does it stop?

Groho- it is not as apparent when it is warmed up. I had the tech drive it and he heard it. So we will see what happens. I think I would lose that dollar though.

Well, my challenger is back and steering good now. They said that the powersteering fluid was low. WHAT THE HELL!?!?!? Don't they check that stuff. Whatever, it fixed the problem. Wasn't leaking so guess it came low from the factory????

Well, Four months later back with the same problem. Started again about a week ago. let it go till it go bad again then called my chysler guy back and had him re open my case. Took it back to the dealer and they can't replicate it. Have to go tomorrow to test drive with the tech again. This is getting old real quick.

I'm not saying that this is your problem, but I have 2 points:

#1 My 2010 had ZERO power steering fluid when I heard it making noise. The steering was bad. It was leaking from a seal down onto the tierod

#2 My friend's jeep made the noise you described at 3000miles. On HIS, it was "bent" suspension components, which when braking or turning one direction would lower the driveshaft enough to grind on his exhaust.

I doubt this is your issue, but at least its something else to check.

You would never think it would make a "grinding sound", but evidently that is what a rough rubber tire making light contact with unsupported plastic sounds like.
This! I had to replace push pins for my passenger side fender liner where the wheel had rubbed against it while turning.

Thing is when I had my new tires installed, the tire dealer put my 255s on the front and rear passenger side and my 245s on the front and rear driver side. The result was the front passenger tire rubbing the inner fender liner.

They just called me back and Chysler is replacing the power steering pump. Hopefully this is the fix.
