Hey All,
I just had both rear bearings replaced and I know this is a common problem(from reading the forums), but I haven't seen anything stating that the replacement bearings will hold. Luckily I have low Kms on the car, so it was covered, but It would have cost me 674.00 if it wasn't.


Actually, The same Identical car as mine was in this morning, i heard he had 80,000 km on the car(mine is at 45,000). The owner was trying to describe the humming noise and I mentioned it was the bearings as well. So there were two instances of bearing failure in at the same time, which is why i brought up the fact that I've read about this on-line.

I was just told that there is a known issue with them from the person at the dealer and I plan on asking when I pick up the car if it is a permanent fix or not. I'm not sure what the answer will be so I figured I would post here.

Is the issue with the original bearings?
or is it a design error that will continue to wear them out over time?

Cheers.
