    G6's and wheel bearing hub problem

    Anyone here have problems with their bearing hubs going out?

    I have read some reports online that the G6 has this problem. Apparently the bearing in encapsulated and cannot be lubricated and goes out and the entire hub assembly needs to be replaced.

    yup thats right. becoming the norm on just about all vehicles now from our G6 to a honda civic to a toyota corolla

    havent seen too many issues with them but there have been a few that went out.

    Remember if "the" and "and" are spelled right its not a genuine Ahuhn post

    Same here. I hope it can wait until next summer though, but... with the mileage I'm racking up and my luck, it will be the dead of winter and -20F when I need to do them, and I won't take it to a shop when I can do it myself.

    Happened to me over the summer. Not a cheap fix either. I could hear it when I drove and it sounded like metal rubbing on metal.
