    The transmissions, PTU and location of the PTU with exposure to high heat and quick break down of the gear oil are all the same.

I hear about the water pump with both the cx-9 and the explorer but only the mazda cx-9 has the failed transfer case/ trans problem. Please remember that the parts of this vehicle were built by ford but designed by mazda.
    I disagree - and agree with puma: All PTUs shared by many Ford vehicles and the CX-9 suffer same failure rate. I do believe most can be avoided with frequent PTU gear oil changes - but Mazda and Ford until recently recommended no PTU gear oil changes. And, to be fair, it is not an easy job.

    At the same point now. I have had the transfer case replaced 3 times (under extended warranty) and now the 4th one has just failed. Back to Front wheel drive car only. I have exhaust leaks and a CEL for code P0016 (camshaft position sensor). I think its just a bad sensor though.

    Has anyone found a source for re-manufactured transfer cases? I would put a few hundred $$ into replacement if it gets me through another winter.

    Lkq.online (they also sell on ebay).. the dealer will always rape on parts, typically because they only buy new. Independent shop.
