I JUST FOUND OUT THAT I HAVE TO REPLACE BOTH THE RIGHT AND LEFT FRONT HUB BEARINGS ON MY 2003 PT CRUISER. THE DEALERSHIP IS CHARGING ME $600 TO DO THE JOB. I HAVE 69K MILES ON THE CAR AND CHRYSLER SAYS IT IS NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR AND IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE 7/70K WARRANTY....SO I SEARCHED THE INTERNET AND TO MY SURPRISE I FOUND OUT I AM NOT THE ONLY PT CRUISER OWNER WITH THIS PROBLEM....I SEARCHED FOR FRONT HUB BEARINGS FOR A PT CRUISER AND FOUND MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE DEFECTIVE BEARINGS....THE BEARINGS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A SEALED BEARING AND NEVER REQUIRE MAINTENANCE....THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY CHRYSLER BY ISSUING A RECALL AND PAY TO FIXED THE PROBLEM...AND REPAY THE CUSTOMERS WHO HAD TO HAVE THE BEARINGS REPLACED.... THE DEALERSHIP EVEN STATED TO ME THAT IT WAS A SAFETY HAZARD AND THE BEARINGS NEEDED REPLACEMENT....WITH ONLY 69K MILES ON THE CAR AND OTHERS WITH FEWER MILES THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN ON A NEW CAR...MYSELF AND MY FAMILY WAS NOT INJURED BY AN ACCIDENT , BUT I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN INJURED FROM THIS DEFECT???....ANY HELP WOULD GREATLY BE APPRECIATED....THANK YOU MICHAEL G KELLY
