Hello, I own a 2018 Crosstrek in Florida. All of my driving is done in flat nicely done asphalt.. and yesterday at 26k miles I had to replace my rear wheel bearing.
Has anyone heard of any issues with this? At this point (mileage) and with the Crosstrek?
You should have fixed under warranty a year ago.

I wondered about this when I got steel rims for my snow tires and made sure I got 48 mm offset rims. I'm at 230,000 miles now - replaced first bearing at 170,000 miles and replaced the other three and the propeller shaft at 200,000 miles. That's consistent with other vehicles I've owned - bearing start to go around 200,000 miles for me.
Sounds like evidence to me. Only other factor I can think of is weight. Changing weight would probably impact durability. Thanks.

Yep. My rear driver side bearing had to be replaced at 25K miles.

Does anyone offer a higher performance wheel hub? Or are they all OEM quality or less?
