I'd say it's a deficiency for it to wear out by 70K miles. That was my experience unfortunately.
Some people experience wheel bearing failures at early mileage... name your part--it probably happens. Safe to call it a deficiency? Not so sure.

Some people may have certain driving habits or conditions which may speed up failure. Not sure?
