    ok so here is the story. i have 27000 miles on her. i have a had a rubbing sound in front end last 5k miles very minor. latley it got much worse so i took it in. the y called and said it was coming from front diff and they ordered me a new one. so it came in i took it back. they call me later in the day and said it was installed but the 4x4 is not working right so they ordered me a new transfer case. i have not got it back yet. part of me is worried it needs all this. prt of me is glad it will all be new parts idk what do u guys make of it?

    If it were multiple engine issues or something like that I would be worried. But your problems aren't something I would be worried about a lemon for. Unfortunate and annoying, yes; catastrophic, no.
