Have had to replace front wheel bearings multiple times under 60K miles. The replacement bearings have even had to be replaced under warranty. I have been told the oem wheel bearings for this vehicle have a 60% failure rate. The solution is to upgrade to a higher quality bearing beyond the oem one. Such as skf brand with a 100K mile warranty.

My daughter was driving at night and started to fish tale and spin out, she said that she had no control of the steering wheel and it lockup the driver side front tire. This caused the vehicle to do a 270 spin then go backwards hitting the curb, flipping the vehicle onto the driver side, causing it to roll. Because the shoulder was an embankment, the vehicle rolled onto the top then rolled back down onto it's wheels. The vehicle came to rest facing the wrong way on the highway. The cost of fixing the damage exceed value of the vehicle. Similar incident occur earlier just as a spin out (Oct. 2010 ?), steering lockup after turning left at an intersection had some oil on the road from a previous accident (not related to us); however, she recover from the spin and just turn off the engine and restart the vehicle unlocking the steering wheel. It was assume that the spin and lockup was from the oil on the road.
