Humm the fact they have admitted the issue in US leaves them a bit open in UK.

You could claim that the goods were not of merchantable quality and go after the dealer in a small claims court using the consumer rights act of 2015 assuming no one agreed to pay.

Car would have to be less than 6 years old though. The Small Claims court is good because the legal costs cannot be claimed by the defendant from the plaintiff. If you lost you would just lose the Small Claims fee.

I am no lawyer so I may be totally wrong.
I think that as long as you bought new from a Porsche UK dealership you would be in a very strong position if your transfer box malfunctioned within 6 years. I would introduce the US extended warranty as evidence that Porsche accept that the transfer box was known to have been manufactured below normal Porsche standards.

I may have to have this conversation soon. I chose not to extend the warranty after 3 years and I have started to notice some drivetrain issues @ 38000 miles. Just planning to get the 40000 service booked in.
