My personal vehicle is a 2008 Ford Explorer that has been diagnosed with multiple wheel bearing failure.I work for a Ford dealership and we have had multiple model wheel bearing failure...mostly on SUV I.e. Explorer, edge, Mountaineer, mkx...have worked here for 20 years and have never seen this amount of wheel bearing failure, most of these failures are on vehicle that are less then five years old and not high mileage...when left go and not repaired, these wheel bearings which start out as being noisey, can quickly lead to failure which could result in wheel seperation from axle......I feel this should be investigated before any fatalities are involved....
