2009 AWD Journey-Power Transfer Unit

Recommended Posts

The Power Transfer Unit on my AWD Journey seized up from a seal failure and I had to have the Journey flatbedded to my dealer shop on May 26th because it was undriveable. Bought an "Added Care Plus " contract when I purchaed the vehicle. The dealer quoted me a $2600 price including labor if I did not have the contract, This is one case when buying those service contracts pays off in the long run. Had additional maintenance work done while the vehicle was there. Driving the vehicle home was like driving a new car. Mileage on the vehicle 61,000.

The transfer case failure also caused that strange odor that was entering the vehicle through the ventiltion system. See my post a few weeks ago.

Ed11729,

Thanks for sharing the experience.

Extended warranties are always worth looking into, it's impossible to predict what may or may not happen.

Modern vehicles are just jammed packed with expensive electronics these days.

The 09 lifetime warranty also only applies to the original owner. I have an 09 and still purchased a lifetime extended warranty just because of all the electronics......

Should be in the supplemental warranty book with the owners manual.

What about the supplement Warranty? I wanna know more about it. Does it give the second owner additional coverage?

By supplemental, I mean it's a separate book in the glove box. It describes the warranty and how it works.
