Following my other post about a second failed transfer box, I thought it would be interesting to take a survey of current owners and the ratio of failed units.

Could you please take the time to reply with model, mileage and whether the transfer box has been replaced or not. In the spirit of a balanced view, please also comment if yours hasn't failed.

I am considering contacting Porsche GB with the results.

I'll start....

Macan Diesel S
Registered June 2016
1st replacement circa 14K miles (July 2017)
2nd replacement at 31K miles (Dec 2018)

Many thanks
