If you have the same types of roads and potholes we have, no vehicle is immune. I think I will need to replace a front wheel bearing soon and I only have 99,000kms.
What kind of noise you getting? Like a droning noise that resonates through the whole vehicle?Well I found the source of my noise which I thought was a wheel bearing. Turns out it wasn't a wheel bearing but a bearing none the less. It's the steady bearing on the propeller ( drive ) shaft. So far I haven't found a replacement bearing and dealer wants to sell me the whole shaft. Going to bring it to A+ driveshaft next week to see if they can part source the steady bearing, if not I'll have to make a financial decision on a junkyard shaft or a new one. GM#42529901
Good to know that the original brakes can last so long. Just wonder if your 2017 Trax is a Premier or LS? My 2017 LT is from GM Mexico plant. I thought North American Trax (2017 and after) are all manufactured in Mexico, and only those Buick Encore come from their Korean plant.Here is my list of repairs so far.
1. Replace water pump (under warranty)
2. Replace throttle body
3. Replace valve cover
4. Replace upstream O2 sensor
5. Replace Purge valve
6. Replace stripped wheel stud (Head was stripped, not threads, very difficult to remove)
7. Replaced leaking AC condenser
Car is a 2017 Trax manufactured in Korea. Currently has 113K miles.
Oddly, original brakes are still good.
Also did PVC valve bypass mod.
Mine is an LS built in Korea according to the stickers. A coworker of mine also bought an LS but his was made in Mexico. Go figure.Good to know that the original brakes can last so long.
