My daughter's 97 Accord EX 4Dr 4Cyl, has 107K miles on it. There was a loud grinding noise that sounded like it was coming from the front drivers side. The faster you went, the louder it got. She brought it to a Firestone dealership, down the road, and was told that both of the front wheel bearings are bad. They told her it would cost $400 a side. I have a few questions, 1) Is it normal for a wheel bearing to go bad at only 100K miles (My 99 accord has 240K, bearing are original)? 2) If this is normal, what are the chances that both sides go bad at the same time? 3) $400 per side seems quite high, any opinions? Thanks for any advice.
