Front drivers wheel bearing failed at 74,000 miles.
The contact owns a 2012 Honda Accord. While driving at speeds above 20 mph, a humming noise was present coming from the front of the vehicle. The dealer diagnosed that the front passenger side wheel bearing was faulty. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The VIN was invalid. The failure mileage was 69,000.
I noticed noise, wheel vibrations and steering problems. The Honda service department said that I had a bad wheel bearing on the left side and replaced it. After I received the car back from the shop, I noticed the car was pulling to the left, wheel vibrations, loose steering wheel and making noise. The car did not shift between gears properly and fluctuated between rpms randomly (even when at idle). I took it back to the Honda service department. This time they reset the computer in the car and performed idle relearn procedure; adjusted the toe on all four wheels. They also found that the rear rotors were out of round and "machine rear brake rotors" but reused the brake pads. I do not feel safe in this vehicle. I have scheduled another service appointment for 8/28. However, I am still having the idle rpm, shifting problems, wheel vibration issues, steering problems, noise issues as well as several other problems. This manufacture should be forced to issue a recall.
