brought x in for service for clunking noise in awd when tires would slip in snow, had to replace the u joint on the drive shaft it was seized up, then noticed at the garage the transfer case was leaking got it repaired and went on my way, got it checked a year later, about 5000 km as its my winter vehicle, and it was gone again this time replaced it on my own, wondering if this is going to happed every year, i bought this SUV in 2008
