How Long Does a Wheel Hub Assembly Last?

The wheels that are on a vehicle are vital in its overall level of functionality. There are a variety of things that help to make this part of a car run, namely the wheel hub assembly and the wheel bearings. The hub assembly helps to make sure that the wheels of the vehicle turn as they should without any issues. There are a number of different things that can compromise the overall functionality that the wheel assemblies have. The hub assemblies will usually have bearings in them that can wear out over time. When the car is ran, the hub assemblies will have to work to ensure that the wheels turn as they should.

The wheel hub assemblies on a car are intended to last for about 100,000 miles. While this can happen, there are usually things that will happen before this milestone hits that will compromise the assemblies and the way they function. The last thing that you want to do is to drive a car that has worn out hub assemblies due to the damage that it can cause. As soon as you start to notice that there is an issue with the hub assemblies on a car, you will need to take the time to get the right repairs done.

Attempting to do this type of repair without the right level of experience, will usually lead to even more problems with the car. The best way to get the right work done to a car is by seeking out a reputable and knowledgeable auto repair professional. These professionals will be able to find and fix the issues that a car is having in no time at all.

When there are issues with a wheel hub assembly, here are some of the things that you will notice:

  • Lot of screeching from the front wheel of the vehicle
  • The steering is very loose
  • There is uneven braking on a regular basis

The longer that you drive with damaged wheel hub assemblies, the harder you will find it to maintain the full functionality of the vehicle. Having a professional repair or replace the wheel hubs is the best way to ensure that the work is done the right way.

Dodge Journey V6-3.6L - Wheel Hub Assembly Replacement (Driver Side Front, Passenger Side Front) - Denver, Colorado
Robert was awesome. I was unable to make my appointment so I arranged with Robert to get the parts and keys from my brother. He was obviously very knowledgeable in what he was doing as the work completed was done in about half the time that was estimated. By far the best mechanic experience I have ever had. Robert kept me up to date along the way and and was more than willing to work with my brother since I could not be there. I also requested that Robert didn't fill the transmission since my car has a silicone gasket. Robert was understanding of this and went as far as to let me know how much fluid he recovered so I could fill it myself once the silicone was cured. Most shops will suck out the ATF Fluid and replace what they pulled out. Robert did the full service on the transmission including dropping the pan and replacing the filter. I verified all the work once I got home and everything looked great. I am truly impressed with the service received from Robert and Your Mechanic. I will be having more work done through them in the near future.

John was on time to the appointment, knowledgeable about my repair and other aspects of my vehicle, and completed the repair efficiently and in a timely manner. I would DEFINITELY recommend John for future repairs of my own and anyone seeking repairs on their vehicles. 110% happy with this service.
Nissan Frontier - Wheel Hub Assembly Replacement (Passenger Side Front) - League City, Texas
Actually, I am pleasantly surprised. John is personable and arrived early which I appreciate. We spoke for a few moments -- discussed the work that needed to be done and then he began the Wheel Hub Assembly service. I was able to sit by as the truck was being serviced -- and John is definitely a professional. Although we had to reschedule due to parts delay -- and I had more than ample time to think about having someone else perform the service, I am glad I waited for John to complete the service. He worked swiftly and with finesse -- a smart finesse with many years of experience--no mess or muddle. I have driven the truck and so far so good. Hoping to have John complete other services in the next few weeks.

Subaru Impreza H4-2.5L - Wheel Hub Assembly Replacement (Driver Side Front, Passenger Side Front) - Norfolk, Virginia
Nathaniels is a devoted and skilled mechanic. He changed the two front wheel hubs on my Subaru Impreza 2010. Despite one side of the wheel hub was very rusted and stucked, Nathaniels ran to get a new tool to get the rusted wheel hub out. I am very appreciative of his hardwork.

Mr. Nate was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about wheel hub assembly. He made quick work of replacing rusted wheel hubs with new wheel hubs for my 2006 Nissan Quest. I would recommend him again. Tim D.
