collector Hi all- New to this forum, but not to Toyota. My last vehicle was a '88 3.0L 4x4 pickup with 260,000KM that lost a valve spring and ruined a piston or two. She was VERY reliable up until that point. I just bought a 2003 Corolla CE (5 speed manual) that was within my price range with only 55,000KM and unfortunately,I test drove while it was raining heavily . I didn't notice the noise until after I was driving it home, and thought (hoped) it was tire noise. To make a long story short, ToyMoCo wanted $450 for the hub assembly, and I got it aftermarket for $150 and installed it in an hour-not TOO big of a deal, but I was cruising around on Autosurvey.org, and I noticed that there are a substantial amount of Corolla owners having this same sort of premature rear wheel bearing failure. Anybody else have problems like this, and if so, is there a recall program? I was a little disappointed about this, knowing firsthand Toyota's reliability record.
