2003 Galaxy gear box..

Just pulled away in my Galaxy 2003 and the gear box 'banged' and then failed. I have been advised that a new box is needed. This is covered by
the manufactures warranty but I'm wondering if this is a common problem or if I have just been unlucky. Anyone else had a similar problem?
