2006 Pontiac Torrent Q&A

2006 Pontiac Torrent Question: Wheel Bearings 65,000 just replaced our 3rd one, anyone one aware of a recall

We are very happy with the Torrent and recomended it to 2 other people, they have purchased the same 2006 Torrent. One friend after a year owning it replaced a wheel bearing at 45,000. Seems to be a common problem and expensive. -

no recalls. the dust from the brakes unfortunately gets into the bearings and there is pre mature failures. Roy -

I replaced my first wheel bearing on the front Right in September 2011. I now replaced it AGAIN and it is only July. So 10months is as long as a wheel bearing is going to last????? something is up with that. Its expensive to have these things replaced!! -
