Center diff failure - again?

That was why I did trade my old car ('05 model) - before it did get too bad. And that was a 2.0i. I was quoted something in the vicinity of $1000 for fixing that.

So is this maybe an issue that is frequent on the '05 model for the 5MT? I have seen other threads around here on that issue. And the shop where I brought my car for diagnostic did have another gearbox with the same issue.

Anyway - it would be good to know what exactly was wrong, since this starts to look like a general issue if many are suffering from the same trouble.
