Hi - I have mazda 2 bought from a mazda dealer with 5,000 miles

Customer Question

Hi - I have mazda 2 bought from a mazda dealer with 5,000 miles on the clock (former demonstration vehicle). The vehicle now has 16,000 miles and in that time (two and a half years) I have had two wheel bearing failures and today I've been told that a front hub needs replacing (all this done under warranty). Is there some underlying cause for these part failures (eg bent axle) How would I go about finding out. I have lost confidence in this particular car - but have owned a mazda 3 and a mazda 2 previously with no problems whatsoever.

Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
Normally when this happens this often there is a underlined issue with the vehicles suspension, normally what causes this is something on the suspension is bent or the vehicle has been in a accident at some point.
What I would suggest is to have the suspension checked at a shop that specializes in suspension work.
