Nissan X-Trail 2002: Wheel bearing replacements at 40,000km

Asked by Keith Brooke

I took my 2002 Nissan X-Trail to a mechanic to have a front wheel bearing fixed. While that was being done the mechanic told me both front wheel bearings and the hubs needed to be replaced, at a cost of $789. My car has only done 41,000 km and I have found that that other owners have had front wheel bearing problems, some as low as 10,000 km. As the damage to the hubs is directly related to the bearing failure do you think I have a case to take to Nissan for some compensation or reduction on the price of the hub assemblies? If so can you advise whom at Nissan I should contact?

I reckon you would have good reason to ask Nissan to supply new hub assemblies free of charge, leaving you to pay for the labour. The best place to start is with your dealer, and you should show him the failed parts and a report from your mechanic.
