2007 patriot rear diff explosion at 53k
Yeah, I know...the wife has put on 53k already but dang...wasnt expecting this. I was coming to a stop and heard a grinding sound, followed by some jerks and loud clunks. Almost thought I ran over something, but didnt remember seeing anything in the road and it was daylight out. Backed up then forward and same thing. Finally put it in reverse and backed into parking lot on side of road...and there it was laying in a pool of gear oil....the back half of the case of the Rear Diff. I missed out on lifetime powertrain by a few months, but I did get the 75k warranty thank god.
