Honda Jazz / Fit has won many awards for being a great car but what owners of the said car does not know is that it has issues with the wheel bearings failing. Honda has issued recalls for the Honda Civic with wheel bearing failures - http://nhthqnwws111.odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/acms/docservlet/Artemis/Public/Recalls/2007/V/RCDNN-07V399-1316.pdf . Why no recall for the Jazz / Fit?

They both had recalls for Handbrake issues (http://clubjazz.org/blog/comment/faulty-civic-handbrakes.html
&
http://www.recalls.gov.au/view_recall_detail.php?Recall_ID_Auto=15998)

The wheel bearings fail at around 40,000km intervals. Some as early as 20,000km. Some have had the bearings replaced multiple times.

The Service Bulletin # SB038T08 will stand for how long?

Below are of owners reporting problems with their bearings on different Honda forum website.

Evidence of this is from owners of said vehicle reporting the problem on jazz forum and other car review website:

We request that Honda Corporation correct the Wheel bearing issue in the Honda Jazz / Fit by:

1) Recalling the vehicle

2) Investigate and source reliable wheel bearings and make it easier to change for future failures without having to replace the whole hub.
