Default Is the wheel bearing covered in the powertrain warrenty?

One dealer service agent says my wheel bearing is covered @ 43K, another says it's not. who is right? Quoted $350 if the hub is still good. I have to admit, I'm very disappointed, out of 5 cars in my family, 43K is a record. The 2 hondas, 2 toyotas, and a mazda truck are still basically trouble free dealer free after 100,000 miles.

Yes, it is. One rear bearing was replaced on our 04 OBS at right about the same mileage as yours. Check your Subaru Warranty and Maintenance Booklet for the specifics of what is covered under the 5/60.

Assuming there is no outside damage (curbing,accident etc...) it is covered under the powertrain warranty.

Look in your warranty and maintenance booklet that came with your owners manual. Under powertrain, it lists ALL the items that are covered.
