There isn't much on this subject so some more good input for the forum.

I have been having a consistantly present sound that has been getting worse. At first I thought that it might be a tire defect or a balance issue but after rotating and balancing the sound never changed or rotated to a new location. Finally I gave up and waited to see if it would get worse and it slowly it did over the last 10,000 miles to the point where I figured out that it was the wheel bearing. So today I took it in to the Dealership and they confirmed that my right/front hub bearing was shot. I am glad that I am still covered under the power train warranty and was surprised that at 62K it went out.
So what did I hear? Everyone has heard those huge mud tires on big trucks or jeeps driving on the highway or going down the road. That's what is sounded like. There was no grinding or ear splitting squeak like you would normally here with a bearing going out. After the replacement I could hear that the left one is starting to go out as well so that will be another trip to the dealer later on.

:cheers:

That's great that your older model still covered the wheel bearings under the powertrain warranty. Our 2010 Traverse deleted the wheel bearings from the powertrain warranty, yet the Acadia and Enclave still had them covered. I haven't looked lately to see what is covered by the 2012 warranties.

Lost my left front wheel hub bearing at 29K; bought the '08 XR FWD certified w/25K.

It's been downhill since; power steering rack, power steering pump, sway bar links, timing chain cover, master cylinder (the famous brake pedal squeak). It goes back in tomorrow as the brake pedal still makes noise.

All under the certified warranty or power train (had to fight about the sway bar links) ... $0 out of pocket but what a pain.

mchenpa: have them change out the brake fluid per the TSB about the pedal squeak. Sorry, don't have the number.
Good advice and I took that advice earlier this year thanks to this forum. Unfortunatly, it did not work and we ended up taking it back and replacing mast cyl. It is actually in the dealer today and they replaced the PB booster :banghead:.

To your point though, I guess they could have used the wrong fluid when they replaced the mast cyl. so I will double check.

Thanks,

From what I have read, the brake fluid to use is NOT GM Goodwrench brand/ACDelco but aftermarket. Who knows, maybe they reformulated it since that TSB....
