Wheel bearings

5 posts in this topic

Hi.

 

I bought my 2013 Chevy spark used.  After having the car for less than a month I had to have the front right wheel bearing replaced.  I had the dealer I bought it from pay for it to be done at a Chevy dealer since his "trusted mechanic"

said the bearings were fine even though they obviously weren't.  

 

Anyway here I am a year later and I'm having the same issue I did before, loud metal rotational sound worse when I turn the wheel to the left. 

 

The vehicle is still under warranty, but I'm wondering if Chevy has any kind of warranty on the work they do?   It's kinda crazy that they are bad AGAIN...

 

Thanks.

Once the bumper to bumper 3yr warranty is up that is not covered, the parts and labor are usually covered for 90 days. Front Hub with bearing is about $300 ...labor and parts.

Just shy of 30,000 miles, left front wheel bearing had to be replaced. Thank goodness my extended warranty was still valid for the $600 repair.  Glad I took the car in, I wasn’t sure if it was the tires or something else, just knew my little car had never been so loud. Wondering why my Onstar maintenance check didn’t indicate an issue? The chassis seems really squeaky, started hearing that at approximately 24,000 miles.

How would Onstar know that the bearing was bad? The bearing is mechanical. When Onstar performs the diagnostics its only on the electrical parts the computer monitors.
