Is anyone else as upset as I am with the 2011 SRX? Drive shaft at 24,00 miles, Air dam for the roof, seat.... I have had 3 other Cad's and never had a wheel bearing problem. My wife's Escalade has 214,300 miles without a problem. SRX left front bearing at 101,110 and right rear wheel bearing at 113,200. $600 a pop for each repair. 2 down 2 to go for another $1200.0. May just take the trade in loss and get another car. (Not a Cad)

I think the problem isn't because GM put in a POS bearing from the factory but i think maybe the spindle nut is overtorqued, which results in premature bearing failure. Its a PITA to take the hub off too. I wish GM would put grease on mating surfaces, so you can take the hub off like a normal human being.

Fwd bearings don't seem to last. 2001 impala went out at 50 k miles. Ask all the police departments in America who are running impala front wheel bearings over and over again.
