Surely Not A Bearing Failing Already

Try as I may I've not been able to get the CT to go much over 50mpg recently. Even on a 100 mile non stop run down the motorway today at 65-70mph it wouldn't go over an indicated 52mpg. On getting home I just happened to feel the tyres and the NSF is hot whilst the others are cool. Wheel bearing already? The car's done a little over 9300 miles. Time to ring the dealer.

If memory serves right, Habu, youve been through the winter with your car havent you? I would suspect a dragging brake caliper due to a build up of winter grime rather than a wheel bearing. By all means a trip to the service bay is a given necessity but I would doubt a wheel bearing issue since modern bearings are one of the most well engineered components on any car and QA on bearings is at its highest.

That would make sense. Unfortunately, my car is used each day, rain or shine, and does a big mileage to boot hence over 9000 miles since January.
