A number of Volt owners have reported this problem though I've heard more of it from the 2012 and early 13 owners. Chevy changed the bearing sometime during the 13 model year. It is hit and miss. I had a 2012 with 24k miles and never had a problem with it.
The good news is, it is extremely well documented at this point and most dealers should know what they are doing. If you have this issue, the first thing I would do is contact my Volt Advisor and let them do the heavy lifting for you. They will identify a qualified dealer, help you make the appointment and arrange for a loaner vehicle.
And yes ramgarden, it should be under warranty.
