Noise coming from the front while driving. My mechanic told me not to worry about wheel bearing as my car was relatively new(~20,000 miles). This problem started irritating me and hence took to a different mechanic and found out that front driver side wheel bearing was shot and had to be replaced. I am glad I did not get any kind of safety problems until then.

2007 Honda CRV. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle wheels installed without TPMS sensors causing tire pressure monitoring system inoperable and request an investigation. The consumer believed the retailer knowingly and willingly made the TPMS inoperative, by installing wheels without TPMS even after the company had been advised that such action would violate the make inoperative prohibition of 49 usc 30122.

The back passenger's side wheel had a "hot" smell coming from it. Honda service determined I had a brake pad that had gotten stuck. Brake pad was replaced, as well as fixing the rotor. The smell continued. Took the car back in and they cannot find one thing "rubbing" that would cause this "hot" smell. They are stumped. I am afraid to drive the car due to the strong smell, wondering if something is going to wear out or catch on fire. Many internet blogs have shown many, many Honda owners to be experiencing the same thing. No other tires/wheel wells smell hot - some owners believe it is due to the exhaust system next to the tire.
