Check the oil level. If that checks out, drain the fluid and check for metal shavings. If you find shavings, remove the rear cover and check the gears and bearings. It takes literally 1/2 hour to do everything.

If you find something at one of those steps, stop and take note of it. Also, double check to see that the universal joints on the drive shaft are not sloppy.

Do a little big of investigation before you make a clain against them.
