Default Power Take Off Unit for AWD


First time poster here. I recently noticed a grinding sound when driving my 2011 Taurus. It has 89K miles and until recently I had no problems with it other than routine maintenance, tires, brakes, etc.

I brought it to the dealer and was told it was the "power take off unit" for the AWD. $1000 for the part, $500 for labor to repair. I was just wondering if this is a common or recurrent problem for cars with AWD.

Now that the problem is repaired, is this something I will have to worry about in the future. Just looking to see if anybody else has had this problem and if it was resolved with the repair.

Also thinking, that the car is due for 100,000 maintenance soon: tune up, new transmission fluid, coolant flush and replace, and probably tires for the winter.

So I am considering trading it in and buying a new car rather that pumping money into it.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and comments.
