Starting hearing a noise vibrating from the back as if my car had oversized tires on it, then a visible vibration occurred from 25-35mph and was consistent over 50mph. After driving to my mechanics house and he was shifting gears, you could hear the gears almost metal crunching and the differential jumping. The car would not put the gears into place properly and even in park the car rolled. Then shortly after testing the car, the gear shot through the aluminum housing and ruptured the unit causing pieces to fall off the side and oil to leak everywhere. Has this happened to anyone before? Car has 133K miles on it, but has been in great shape otherwise with normal maintenance. Please help!
