Chevrolet Complaint - Bad wheel bearings - 2005 Chevrolet Sierra 1500/front wheel bearings
I bought this Chevy truck new after driving chevys for 45 years. At 52K miles, the left front wheel bearing was loose enough to cause a vibration. I was amazed to find that the bearings are not servicable but have to be replaced as a unit at at the cost of $550. The dealer covered this repair under extended warranty. Now at 94K miles, the right front bearing failed. The cost at this time is $757, not covered by warranty. For the first 100 years of automobile manufacturing, wheel bearings could be serviced and adjusted for a nominal fee. To change this assembly to something that can only be replaced for an exorbitant price is outrageous. The next vehicle I purchase wiil be a Honda.
