I just had my front right bearing replaced on our 2009 SEL. It was in bad shape.
About 6 months ago I had noticed a small grinding/sound that reminded me of past wheel bearing trouble. My Wife brought it in to the dealer to check on the bearings and they brushed off the grind/sound as a "bad tire" on the back of the van. I happened to drive it months later and it was definitely roaring and grinding. They didn't have any problem figuring out the problem when I brought it in at that point.
I wish that the Routan didn't have some of these common issues like brakes, but we do love it all the same. My Wife is still very happy with the van, and it is the perfect road trip vehicle with kids.
