2015 Outback with 62,000 miles and the left rear wheel bearing went bad. Initially sounded like a flat spotted tire. Then at slow speeds when warm but mostly when cold, there was a popping and a crackling coming from the left rear. When jacked up and the wheel spun there was the "tinkling" like sound of something "spindly". Dealer wanted $490 but call to Subaru and replaced by same dealer at no cost. Just a heads up for people! :surprise:

Can you please expand on this? What exactly happened between dealer, Subaru and you? Assume you were out of warranty?

Same mileage same boat... thing is I heard this a long time ago and always assumed it was their crappy tires, got new tires and then noticed it was still there...
