    It started a few months ago and is getting much worse. From a stop, if
    I make a u-turn the whole car shakes, and it makes a funny noise, like
    the tires aren't slipping or something. I have to make such turns very
    slowly and carefully, because it sounds so bad.

    I assume it's a differential/CV/axle issue.

    I've never done anything to the car, and it's got a bit over 100k
    miles now. Is this most likely a shaft assembly, or could it just be
    oil? Any ideas on cost?

    I'm don't suppose by some miracle there's 120k mile drive train
    warranty, right? Ha ... wishful thinking! :)

    It is your AWD system malfunctioning. Is it an automatic transmission?

    Could be CV joints.
