This car has had 6 wheel bearing replacements in 130,000 miles. Spoke of record with an engineer at bearing supplier. Said the bearings are not adequate for parts of North American market. Inner wheels fill with mud and harden creating vibration when driving. I don't recommend this car if you live or travel on dirt roads.
Wife loves it. Repair shop owner loves it too. Very expensive to repair.
Upgrade wheel bearing system. Redesign wheel mud splash and drainage.
