Yes the 2010 does have a different transaxle, but are you saying the 2010 doesn't have a chain? Not sure if you mean that a 2008 doesn't.
The 6F35 was used starting in 2009 and does have a chain. The infamous "hoot" sound leaving from a dead stop came with the 2009MY. First heard on the 4WD blamed on programming which didn't fix the problem. They then said it was normal, heard on FWD/4WD but later blamed the drive chain. If the chain was replaced the sound returned shortly. Later a chain snubber was added but I never heard of anyone having that installed.
