There was a slight humming noise for a few months and then a few days ago it sounded like someone was under the hood knocking on the vehicle when I was driving. It was the right front wheel bearing. I heard Honda extended the warranty on these to 60K because of issues....I have only had the van 4 months and it was 56K when I bought it.
