The contact stated vehicle began to make a strange noise. He took the vehicle to a dealership, and they discovered there was a problem with the driver's side hub and wheel bearing. They were repaired by the dealer. Afterwards, the vehicle had the same problem on the passenger's side. The repairs were made again by the dealer under an extended warranty.
