    Default 2010 PT Cruiser front wheel bearings failed at 22,000 miles

    Just an FYI, Our lightly used 2010 PT Cruiser with 22,000 miles spent
    the past few days at the dealers repair shop having the failed front
    wheel bearings replaced under warranty. I was kind of surprised that
    they failed at such low mileage, but happy it was still covered under
    warranty.

    You are correct. They should not have failed after only 22,000 miles. Did they start making noise, or how did you know they had failed.

    Over a one month period I noticed an increase of the noise from the
    front end at highway speeds that almost sounded like louder than normal
    tire tread noise, the strength of the noise followed vehicle speed, not
    engine RPM, not drive train load, increased slightly when turning right
    on highway cloverleaf, and as a test the noise didn't change with tire
    rotation or swapping in my winter tires.
