check this outAfter 4.5 years and 45K miles, the transfer case in my 2015 Macan has gone bad. The dealer has agreed to replace it under Porsche Goodwill. Original quote was $3200. Don't have a final quote yet.
My bad transfer case had slipping, vibrating jerking during acceleration. If yours is bad you can definitely feel it.Hi Catapult, Can you describe the symptoms that you observed that led to the conclusion that the transfer case was failing? Noise? Jerking when turning?
Back in August, the first indication of a problem was a slight shutter when backing up and turning left. At the time I suspected something with the engine and not the transfer case, maybe a slight stumble. It only happened when everything was at normal operating temperatures and was not noticeable when cold.
Last month it became noticeable when accelerating in the lower gears. Like something was slipping in the drive-line. Once again only when temperatures were normal. It got progressively worst after that to the point when accelerating produced a banging noise. Then I was sure it was the transfer case. The symptoms are well defined in the many threads about transfer case and its issues.
