Tears up the tires. Hops and jumps sliding the tires when turning. I am a non traditional student, I can't just buy a new car.

So I'm sure you've seen the TSB about the clutchpack for the rear diff. Mine suffered a catastrophic failure with little to no warning before fully locking my rear axle solid, ie. left and right wheels have to turn at the same speed - turning is very difficult. The dealer recommended a rebuild, I chose to fully replace the diff - the cost difference was very small... then the axle seals started leaking on the new diff. Replaced twice, still leak... there's 2 complaints about those too!
