wheel hub bearing bad....already?

My bad luck with my 2012 Overland continues. Had a clicking noise when I turned right. Took to dealer and encountered a storm on the way. About a mile from the dealer a tree falls on my Jeep and smashes the hood and grill. Got some funny looks as I pulled into the service bay because I had a rather large tree branch sticking out of my grill. Then the news of a bad wheel hub bearing at 40k miles is a bit tough to take. I also had a TPMS sensor go bad and they are a bit pricey. The good news is the skid plates saved my underside from damage when I went over the tree. I'm afraid to see whats next with my Jeep adventure.

Re: wheel hub bearing bad....already?

Sorry to hear about the run in with the tree. You proved that skid plates aren't just for off roading.

My 14 needed a front wheel bearing with a couple of thousand miles on it. Although I was still able to drive the Jeep, it did take a week for the dealer to get the bearing. I couldn't believe they didn't keep them in stock. Chrysler seems to have a very inefficient parts distribution system.

Once the part came in the dealer had me in and out in no time.

Loud noise while going downhill and making right hand turns. Took to dealer yesterday. Today they called said it was the bearing and they replaced it. It didn't sound like bad wheel bearings I have heard on other cars, but I am not a mechanic.
