2004 Chevy Aveo 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 210000 miles
I have a recurring problem with my front wheel bearings going bad. I have them replaced by 3 different places, including the dealer. They will go bad between 5,000 and 20,000 miles. I have never had a problem with the back wheel bearings and the original's are still on in the rear. I had all the suspension parts replaced in front and back on both sides at around 170,000 miles. I have replaced the front driver side with a new wheel hub and it. Doesn't seem to help with the front wheel bearing going bad. It doesn't make a difference if the bearings are replaced with GM parts or Aftermaket wheel bearings. The front rotors & brakes have been replaced as well. My tires are rotated every 6,000 miles but still seem to wear faster then they should. The tires are balanced as well every 6,000 miles. The front driver side wheel bearing has been replaced 2 times in the last 6 months. With about 9,000 miles put on in that time frame. The passenger front side has been replaced once. It has the orginal wheels of 14" and using 14" tires. Are the wheels causing this or what is cuasing this problem? Every other car I have owned goes at least 100,000 miles before replacing the wheel bearing and some go even longer.
have the same problem?
