Wheel bearings/hub had to be replaced after nearly complete failure (complete failure would have been the tire locking into place). It started with a grinding sound coming from a wheel - best heard at low speeds and while turning.

This was the first time the hub assembly was put on the driver and passenger side. Just a few months later, we had to replace both sides again!

I heard a grinding/rumble noise when going through a parking garage. Took it in and I needed new brakes not a suprise, but the right front wheel bearing was also bad.
