Have had to install new fuel pump,catylytic converter,brakes,heater core and wheel bearings. All happened at around 68,000 miles. I currently have 70,400 miles on vehicle and it is running fine except for a whinning from alternator which dealer can't find cause.Today I noticed a smell of rubber burning which seems to be coming from rear wheel.
