Wheel bearing problems
By pvg1 on


2005 Scion xA 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


171,000 miles.
Replaced both front wheel bearings 3X. Rear bearings 1X.
Too bad because everything else is original. Out of 6 cars I have owned this one is the first I ever had to replace a wheel bearing.
I guess I made up for that with this one.
I am looking for a new small car and since I don't want another car with wheel bearing problems I am not even going to look at the 2012 toyota yaris.

so because you had to replace 60 dollar wheel bearings 4 times in 171000 miles you're not going to pick up another toyota? seems a little harsh given that its trouble free other then this one problem. good luck finding a car thats as reliable as this one.
