Default Re: Bad wheel bearings

WELCOME to the forum.

Yes it is early. Sometimes the bearings last a lifetime. What probably happened is that Carmax took your car in from someone else as a trade. They inspected it, and tightened down the axle nuts above spec and put too much pressure on the bearings, burning them out. Just a guess, and you'll never be able to prove it. It could have been the previous owner also.
