RT REAR WHEEL BEARING 6TH AND COUNTING
By RIchard Kane on
2001 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
First right rear bearing went bad 2,000 miles after I purchased the car two years old used. Since then, it has been replaced four more times and now needs another one replaced. Worst part is that the bad wheel bearing causes that tire to wear much more quickly. With AWD all four tires must match. That's a lot of tires. $$$
Subaru ought to solve the wheel bearing issue and recall all Foresters to solve the problem.
