car   Axle Hubs problem of GMC Yukon

The vehicle involved was a 2005 GMC Yukon denali. Crash was involved with this problem. On 23 March 2005 at 6:30am, I was driving my 2005 Yukon denali in a 15mph school zone on a military post when my driver's side rear tire came off. When I skidded to the side of the road and got out, I noticed that one of the lugs was broken off. This was the cause of my wheel coming off. I was only driving between 10-15mph. I was the only one in the vehicle and there were no injuries. When the tire came off the vehicle, 2 cars in oncoming traffic had to swirve to miss it. When I called the dealership (cutter Dodge/GMC in waipahu, hi) the finance manager told me to call the service department. I purchased my vehicle on 05 March 2005 as a demo. I haven't had the vehicle for even 3 weeks. When I talked with my insurance company on the phone, they told me to check with the service department to see if it was covered under warranty since it was a new vehicle. When I towed the vehicle to the service department, they told me it would take like an hour to do an assessment on everything to see how the problem occurred. If I was on the highway going 55mph, I could have lost my life!!! the service manager after 2 hours said that I would be granted a rental car for the day, and they would have to do an investigation. Today, 24 March 2005 when I went to the service station, they told me that they would take care of all the damages that were caused to the rotor/body/axel or shaft. They extended my rental until Monday. At this moment, I do not feel safe in this vehicle. I paid over $53,000 for this vehicle. I want another vehicle. They can have this vehicle back and get me another one just like it!!!! I will do whatever it takes to get another vehicle. Either I will go to the better business bureau, GMC, or the local news. Just like I said, I do not feel safe driving in this vehicle!!!!!!!. This axle hubs problem happened on Mar. 23, 2005.

car   Axle Hubs problem of Hyundai Santa Fe

The vehicle involved was a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe. The VIN of this vehicle is 5NMSKDAG9A_. This is a low-mileage Hyundai awd Santa Fe limited with 19" allow rims. At about 11,500 miles I noticed grease on the inside of the front-left wheel. It was thick and green in color, the grease used to lubricate the axle joint. The centrifugal force from the axle sprayed the grease along the inside of the wheel. I checked the cv boot and axle and it appeared the grease was leaking from the seal between the boot and the axle hub. There was a very slight leakage coming from the right wheel axle as well. This should not happen with a vehicle only a year old. I took it to the Hyundai dealership and they confirmed the leakage on both wheels and ordered two axle seal kits, which will include replacement of the joint. There was no charge for the inspection and there will be no charge for the repair. If this went unnoticed it could cause an axle to overheat and fail. At high speeds this could cause an accident. This axle hubs issue occurred Sunday, July 10, 2011.

car   Axle Hubs problem of Mercury Mountaineer

2003 Mercury Mountaineer awd 4. 0l. We purchased our Mountaineer in June of 2004, with 22,000 miles on the odometer. Approximately 300 miles into our ownership, we experienced a front bearing wine. Dealership covered defect under 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty. Other defects covered. . . Replacement of the rear speed sensor at 23,454 miles. A 2nd abs problem required a new actuator speed control switch assembly at 28,419 miles. Transmission shift solenoid replaced at 32,075 miles. Driver side passenger window motor replaced at 33,443 miles. Recall on rear glass hatch lift struts at 27,379 miles. January 23, 2006 our Mountaineer now has 42,777 miles on the odometer. We noticed a low pitch noise starting at 25-30 mph and becoming higher in pitch at higher speeds. Our local Lincoln / Mercury dealership service advisor determined we had a faulty rear axle ring & pinion gear set. They rebuilt our rear axle using the VIN # to determine actual bill of sales date, which was June of 2003. This gave us a warranty until June of 2006 thus nearing the end of our 36 months warranty. We regretfully admit paying a $200. 00 deductible the dealership asked for. We drove off with our newly rebuilt axle in our Mountaineer. Our noisy axle never went away. The dealership blamed this due to worn and noisy tires. We replaced these tires at 47,500 miles or 4,500 miles after the original axle noise complaint with no real apparent change to our noisy problem. Our Mercury Mountaineer went back into the shop at 48,300 miles with a noise still distinctive from the rear. Again our local Mercury dealership took a look at the SUV with the service manager riding in the vehicle. His comment. . . Sounds like an on-going rear axle issue. He would check with his district manager about replacing the entire axle assembly this time around. They contacted us by phone the next day. They didn't believe it was the axle, but one of the rear outer hub wheel bearing assemblies. It would cost us $270. 00. This issue happened on Jul. 21, 2006.

car   Axle Hubs problem of Mitsubishi Montero

The car involved is a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero. I have 2 complaints. First: I have had the car checked several times by the dealer to locate a very loud noise coming from the front of the car. It has to be in something that has to do with the steering or I guess suspension. I have had the right front hub assembly replaced, new tires and a brake job that I wasn't supposed to have done on the truck and I still have the noise that has been confirmed by the dealership technician. When driving straight, the car has loud hum. When I steer to the right and the weight of the truck shifts to the left, the noise goes away. When I steer to the left and the weight of the truck shifts to the right, the noise gets louder. I haven't noticed anything yet with the steering that might seem dangerous, but I feel very uneasy about the car. I feel like one day I am going to be driving and something will just snap. The main thing is I don't have the money to keep taking the truck to dealerships to investigate what is going on and finding nothing. Second, I was wondering if there is a standard for the placement of the brake and gas pedals with respect to the placement of the seat. When I purchased the truck I realized that the seating was kind of wierd but I didn't think anything of it. Now, after having been seen by several dealers. Because of extreme pain in my back, but primarily my hips to the point of considering surgery. They ask if I have been in an accident or fallen or had any trauma and I haven't. Then I realized the pain did not begin until I got this truck and I primarily feel poorly when I am driving and right after I drive. So I really started paying attention to the position my body is in when I am driving and my legs are in a very awkward position in order to reach the pedals. Thus my question: do these types of standards for pedal placement exist and where might I take my truck to have it measured or tested for compliance. This problem occurred on Friday, Jan. 10, 2003.

car   Axle Hubs problem of Mitsubishi Eclipse

The vehicle was a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse. Both rear hub & bearing assemblys were causing vibrations in the car. Car is 3 years old and the mechanic claimed he never had to replace both rear hub assemblys on such a new vehicle. The assembly left no room to lubricate the bearings which caused them to keep in moisture and rust prematurely. Mechanic said the parts were filled with rust fragments to the point he was surprised the tires stayed attached to the axle. Mitsubishi parts supplier said this wasn't a common problem with that model year but said there was a lot of replacement parts being sold. It was May. 23, 2003 when this axle hubs issue occurred.

car   Axle Hubs problem of Toyota Tundra

The vehicle was a 2002 Toyota Tundra. The rear transaxle hub does not have a bolt on cover, but is welded solid to the axle casting. I noticed oil on the ground and investigation reveals the hub cover has rusted thru, allowing oil to run out. If all of the oil had drained out and the vehicle driven,the axle could have seized up,causing a serious vehicle crash and personal injury or death. Toyota was notified via local dealership, and they denied any coverage. Between the environmental impact and the safety issue,and the fact it is not repairable, makes me want to complain. The leak was temporarily plugged with epoxy, but has recently failed again. November 23,2013 . Checking various internet web pages, this apparently is a common problem across all Toyota trucks and most year models, not just Tundra. With the frame rust thru and cross member rust thru recall,all of these recall areas are within inches of my rust thru / perforation of even thinner sheet metal in a critical location. Please review . This issue happened on Nov. 8, 2008.

car   Axle Hubs problem of Toyota Avalon

2004 Toyota Avalon. Consumer requests reimbursement for power steering and wheel hub repairs. The consumer stated she experienced steering failure, two years prior to the recall. The consumer went to a local mechanic, because the Toyota dealership was too far to drive to for the repair. Upon submitting all the required proof, Toyota refused reimbursement stating the repair she paid for was not the reason for the recall. Therefore, the consumer took the vehicle to the dealer for the correct repair, which she felt had already been done. Last fall, the consumer started to hear a whirring noise while driving on the highway. The dealer was unable to diagnose the problem then, the noise became louder and again, she went back to the dealer. At that time, the noise was diagnosed as a wheel hub that needed to be replace at a cost of $ 750 per wheel plus tax totaling over $3,000. The lead mechanic diagnosed the problem as being one replacement of the right rear hub, not all four. This axle hubs problem happened on Tue., Jan. 1, 2013.

car   Axle Hubs problem of Cadillac SRX

I recently had a problem with my Cadillac Srx because the left wheel assembly failed and my tire literally fell off the axle while I was driving. I thought I would bring this potentially serious problem to your attention because it appears to be a combination of design flaw and/or dealership repair issue. Either way this problem potentially may impact other people. I originally had my car serviced at tustin Cadillac in California in June 2007 for a ?traction engaged? light problem. The traction light was always coming on when I accelerated my car from the stop position. This problem was fixed at this time and I had no problem until around July 19, 2007. On the same car side and tire the month earlier I experienced problems, there a serious problem because as I was told, a nut had come off the rear wheel axle assembly. I was originally told and assured by the service advisor that the two events of June and July were not related to each other. Later the service manager expressed and told me the two were most likely associated. The service manager treated me very well and I appreciated his honesty and concern for my welfare. It was Thursday, July 19, 2007 when this axle hubs issue happened.
