I had my wheel bearings replaced at Honda dealer right before it warranty deadline at 35870 miles.
It went noisy, and both were replaced at 36K by a dealer under warranty.
Just wanted to express disappointment with the car at such low mile marker.
Got it done for free just a hundred miles before the end of the warranty.
I have no solution other that to go to a shop to replace them ( both in this case )
