2004 Saturn Vue AWD possible front wheel bearings

#1

Automatice trans, just turned 100K miles. I’m getting a whirling noise out of the front end, that gets progressively louder as speed increases, with only very little vibration felt at the pedal. Dealer price: $398 per wheel, neighborhood shop: $310, Pep Boys: $295. I haven’t pulled any of the wheels yet.

#2

If your question is, who would I have do the repair, definetely the neighborhood shop over Pep Boys.

#3

What’s wrong with my boys Manny, Moe & Jack?

#4

Manny is in a residential drug rehab program.
Moe was fired for excessive absenteeism.
Jack can’t do anything more technical than changing tires.

;-))

Seriously, however, the level of expertise at Pep Boys is almost always not very good. If the mechanics at your local Pep Boys are good, then I am glad for you, but most locations with which I am familiar are staffed only with very young guys with very little experience.
