      Well, I got my Aveo back today and she runs like a striped a$$ed ape. We replaced both sensors and the Catalytic Converter, which was destroyed. There was quite a bit of the CC guts that made it down to the secondary cat. It was a good feeling to drive her again, especially without the trepidation of thinking it's going to strand me. The car ran and shifted beautifully.

      Zcarmaniac, my estimate from a local shop was $660+/-. When it's convenient, would give me the brand and part # of the "upgraded" front wheel bearings that you used? The install $ is the same whether it be a cheapo or high quality bearing and I don't see an end to my ownership when the Aveo goes to other family members. Your feedback is much appreciated.

      Very similar to my observatioin, no play in unloaded wheel, but plenty of rotational noise which increases in loudness as I slow down going forward. I've owned alot of cars/trucks, but this is the first wheel bearing to fail at <74K miles.

      Sounds vey similar to my situation. No play or rotational noise when wheel is unloaded, but plenty loud when going forward with loudness increasing as I slow down.
