So the rear axle on my dad's '03 Marauder broke somehow. One of the shafts started slipping in and out of the rear end. He doesn't do crazy stuff with the car, drives it in a spirited fashion of course. We're both like "WTF!?". He was able to limp it over to the dealership and they "have" to rebuild the axle to the tune of $1200. One of the techs told my dad this has become a somewhat common occurrence in the Panther bodied cars because Ford is going cheap on the rear ends. Anyone ever heard of this or is this total BS? I call BS. There is no reason why the rear end in a stock Marauder should fail at a little over 90,000 miles. Lol, he had just finished "passing" a Mustang GT getting on the highway. Probably didn't help the situation much, considering the rear end started making noise a couple months ago. He took it to the dealership then, and they told him there was nothing wrong.
