I had the front driver's wheel bearing go bad on me. It was a gradual degradation that I thought was simply our noisy Michelin LX's. Near the end, it sounded like a Mack truck coming down the road. I have a 2006 EX with 39,000 miles.
I replaced the tires with Mastercraft touring LSR's(rebadged Cooper CS4's). Same noise. Off to the dealer. They identified the problem and said 397 to fix.
I called Honda and opened up a case. I am happy to report that Honda picked up half the cost. I was happy with that. I wish I would have brought it in before 36K. I'm sure it was there, but I blamed it on the tires.
In the end, I'm glad that Honda agreed that a wheel bearing should not be shot at 39k.
