Bad Differential - Warranty Replaced

I have a 5.7 4x4 Overland with 10,000 miles on it. I have been complaining of a shutter/noise from the vehicle since I purchased it. After 2 dealerships looking at it, one today finally told me my differential is bad and has to be replaced. Has anyone else had this issue? What are my options? I sold my '02 Overland because of the same issue. Can I get my money back on this vehicle - it is 6 months old!

Re: Bad Differential - Warranty Replaced

Your options? I know it sounds crazy, but have you considered taking the new differential?

Which differential?

Re: Bad Differential - Warranty Replaced

For the love of gawd, please don't tell my wife that my rear end could be replaced for free.

She would march my fat arse in for a new one in a heart beat.

It is going to be very difficult to get your money back.... At least you haven't gone through what this
guy has gone through:

It's Official, I Regret My Purchase
