New to forum. Just took my 2016 Macan S (11,500 miles) to dealer this morning. Needs a new transfer case. SA says he should have the work completed this afternoon. My daughter is the everyday drive and had not noticed the problem but when I drove the car it was pretty obvious. Same symptoms as reported above. I described it as a "hammering" on accelerating from a stop. SA's diagnosis took one drive around the parking lot. Came home to look up transfer case online and found this forum. Enjoyed the 2016 I bought for my daughter so much I bought a 2017 GTS. So far no problems with the 2017.
Hmmm, another one. Not that this seems to be a widespread issue, but it seems to be more than isolated. After being active on the forum for a couple of years, i'm wondering if this is the most common serious repair.
Again, it seems like only a very small % of transfer cases have failed, but the fact that the average Macan is still very young might seem to suggest that we should watch this closely.
