2011 BMW X5 Power Train Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1336038
 Internal NHTSA #10927560
 ManufacurerBMW of North America, LLC
 Model Year2011
 File date21/11/16
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemMy vehicle has 80,886 miles and just had oil changed at bmw dealership, fields bmw winter park fl. I requested a check on the vehicle as there has been a grinding/vibration noise on turning left and right at intersections or moving from a parked position. The dealership said the transfer case is failing and to replace it would be $6,666. 40. I am shocked to hear this diagnosis for a vehicle that has less than 81,000 miles on the odometer. I am really concerned about the gearbox failing while driving and this could be a high safety hazard for myself and the family. I certainly think that bmw gearbox should last longer, however the vehicle is out of warranty and the dealer said i really cannot afford to pay another ~$7000 and wondered if this is a recall issue?
