I have a couple of questions about it though? It looks like it has 2 catalytic converters, 1 muffler and a resonator or two. Is this right and what for?

Also, I noticed it was in for front wheel bearings at 32,000 miles. Is this abnormal?
Thanks in advance!

2 cats, yup thats cali emisions on the car, but the wheel bearings at 32k is not normal, I'm still on my original bearings after 62k on my 99, and I'm REAL evil to my car. Welcome to HP btw :)

Interesting, California emissions even though it was delivered to Upstate New York.

It's possible the wheel bearings were just checked or adjusted under warranty. Since I am the second owner how would I know if they are bad (Noise, vibration, looseness, ???)?

Thanks in advance.

No not right now but I'll keep an ear for the squealing. Didn't know if it was a vibration and/or noise to watch out for.
Thanks
