Front Wheel Bearing Issues

Anyone else having front wheel bearings wear out in 55,000 km ? I've got 110,000 km on my full time 4x4 drive and I'm on the third set of front bearings.

No issues here and I am at 50,000 miles. I have the same version you do (V6 4x4 EX). Thanks for the heads up on a potential future issue.

@ capal1 - It started as a very low pitched droning sound. At that point the dealer checked them and said nothing was wrong. After 500-1000 km I could feel a gritty feel trough my steering wheel, that's when they showed signs of failure.

I've got a '13 Optima LX with an increasingly louder noise from the left front. I first thought it to be tire noise, but it's getting louder. Recently proved that it's not tire noise.
I'll soon find out how much resistance Kia has to warranty issues!

I have had the left front bearing go out on my Kia sorrento 2007 right at 106.000 miles now at 133.000 I have the right bearing blew. I have been driving for 50 years and have never had to replace front bearings on any of my old cars. What is up with this. Does anyone know what causes this?
