My Honda 2010 Insight - vehicle rolls back after releasing brake going up hill. This intermittently happened since buying vehicle last year around 2/30/2015. Last year around the month of June - a roll-back caused vehicle to roll-back on a curb on right side and rear tire hit curb pretty hard. I confirmed later the bearing had a noisy sound after that (the vehicle always had a slight much lighter noise while driving). We heard a slight louder rubbing sound after that roll back on a curb incident. Dealership told me hybrids has slight noise due to battery electric sound. Months later after the roll-back bearing damage, I asked about issue with a mechanic shop, they told me issue sounded like bad bearings, and I was told to get shocks checked too. I was unemployed - and they told me most people can drive with bad bearings for a while. Here is more detail on the roll back - it happens, while moving foot from brakes to gas paddle. When the roll back happens - it's after I release brakes on a slop. I had to quickly hit gas or move quick to breaks again- due to sometimes I in stopped in traffic on a hill, and I can't hold the gas due to forward motion in stopped traffic, so while hold brake with right - I move my left foot to brakes and then right foot over gas - when able - move forward (and I release my left foot from brakes). My daughter drive more than me, and told me not to hit brakes to quickly or quick multi-tap & release brakes before I stop, she is right this issue happens less now that I slowly move foot from gas to brakes going up hill). That was when I learned to coordinate footing on a hill. I found it's sort of expensive to fix tire bearings at the Honda dealership, and my vehicle was over 70,000 miles at that time last year - from Honda. I am ready to get roll-back, and hopefully bearings fixed by Honda too.

Vehicle purchased 07/12/2010 with 520mi on odometer on 3 different occasions a wheel sensor for the TPMS has failed. The first two were replaced under vehicle warranty, no questions asked. Took the vehicle to hendrick Honda of bradenton Florida ( the only shop to do any work on this vehicle!) on 09/04/2014 I took it in for an oil change and the TPMS error that I'm so getting used to...the service adviser stated it would cost over $200 dollar to replace (not in the budget this week). He would not tell me which wheel had the bad sensor ( I just wanted to know if it was a new fail or an old one) shop would not give me that information!!!! I asked for the TPMS system to be disabled and was told that it cannot be....it is federally mandated system...now one would think the wheel sensors are part of the mandated system right" no, they are not said the service adviser...a federally mandated system would by description be equal to the sum of all of it's parts correct??" no even this being the third failure in 4 years they would not replace a major part of the vehicles safety system with a pattern of failing. So now they cross rotated the tires, and I have no idea which is the bad wheel....safety first.
