Q: The right front bearing went bad at 48,000 miles, is this normal & why? on 2011 Honda CR-V

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
a humming noise from the front right side of the car, rotated the tires - no change.

5 Yr./60K on drivetrain. Sad but it only takes a small pothole to trash some bearings. Get it replaced at a dealer (should be warranty) and go on and enjoy the ride. IF there are any doubts , as far as the cause of the noise , get to test drive WITH the tech who will be working on it!
No, this isn't normal. Part failures can occur at any time regardless of age or mileage. You should expect the other side to last longer though.
