Rear bearing and front axle make noise - should I fix ASAP, or wait?
The rear started sound like louder tire/road noise a few weeks ago. It's pretty subtle, but I asked about it at my recent oil change. They said it was the rear bearing assembly.
For a few months, there is a clicking sound when I turn very sharp to the right going uphill. They said that was a little looseness in the axle.
For both, they said they aren't emergencies - that they will gradually get worse and I can wait until the sounds are louder.
I have a 800-mile road trip coming up the first of August, a 500-mile trip the second week, and a 1,100-mile trip the last week of the month.
Should I wait to see if the sounds get worse before then? Or should I go ahead and get the bearing and/or axle fixed?
My 2013 XV has 75k. I'm a little disappointed to have these issues at this point (my Pontiac Vibe made it significantly farther before any major issues).
