2012 CRV rear bearings shot at 70K miles. Anyone else pissed??

How long do you think wheel bearing should last? Am considering a complaint to Honda factory, this CRV never carried excessive loads or off-road, just normal freeway.

any shared experience of typical failure rate appreciated

Gen2 rear wheel bearings are known to fail. I had bad front bearings on our 99 Acura TL, too.

Excessive loads are not always the failure mode. Our '06 carried more than 600 LBs in its cargo area for 150K miles without a wheel bearing failure. Side-loading from curves can be a factor, especially if you drive on bumpy or poorly maintained roads.

Very nicely explained!
