I assume that you don't want us to vote if it is being replaced because it is leaking but has not actually failed.

Correct

Re: Angle Gear Failures by VIN (stevectsai)

I am on my third angle gear, car now has 44K miles of highway driving on it. I don't track it or drag it, so I don't think its driving style that affects it.

My .02

Can you please clue the clueless as to what exactly is the "angle gear"? Thanks

It is the gearset that drives the propshaft back to the Haldex and rear axle. No angle gear, no RWD

If your angle gear was replaced due soley to leakage/seepage (not a hard failure), select "replaced due to leakage/seepage."

I don't see this option, possibly because I already voted. Perhaps a new poll is needed if there are new options added?

Yeah . . .
Unfortunately I can't figure out how to add a poll choice, only edit or delete existing choices

It's the last 6 of your VIN.

Re: Angle Gear Failures by VIN (JimLill)

I haven't had that issue yet but I'll check. I've got almost 38K miles on it and it seems to be good. My last six on the VIN starts w/ a 3. I guess this was one of the first V70Rs.

Re: Angle Gear Failures by VIN (r_driver04)

that's bad news. 3 failures wouldn't that be under lemon law realm?

In Nevada, to qualify under our lemon law it would have to be a new car, in the shop at least 5 times in first 18 months, or in the shop more than 30 days in first 18 months.
