 Description of the problemMy wife & i purchased this 2012x5 2 years ago,last year the vehicle was being driven off the driveway where there was a loud snap&ban. The car didn't move. We called a tow and had it brought to jupiter bmw fl . We found out that the drive shaft snapped. Mileage was 45-48k miles. We called bmw na it was a warranty recall part and the dealer stated it was replaced. After that in the last 10 months we have experienced many strange movements in the rear and in turns. We called the dealership and spoke to a tech where they stated it was tires in the rear. We recently replaced the tires & it remained to be there where it was mild but there. During this time period we had many serious obstacles with cancer & family in pr devastated. We received a recall notice airbag, we called the dealer to replace it. While there we failed to mention it being in a rush & still only one of the two airbags still unavailable. After we left during the month we felt it more so, at that time i try to reach the service advisor & failed to reach her in several attempts. After driving this week it got seriously worse while my family little children in car, we pulled over called our local mechanic and he said bring it if possible or tow. So we did! At that time we never discussed we replaced any recall drive shaft (make note). The mechanic called us in shop said the shaft is broke and leaking grease has a lot of play in it, also do to that is directly related & cause to be a issue with transfer case!!!. We took a video of it and the mechanic & us called bmw na discussed it & they recommend to take to bmw under extended warranty. Upon arrival we provided the service tech a video of the discovery . 6 hours later they claim the shaft is fine & video & inspection was not issue, &transfer case having issues. They said our bill 9000$. There is over 300 claims exact issue #17v138000see attached pic & compl
