The automatic gearbox in our Nissan Juke has failed after just 17,000 miles - is this a common problem?

I have an automatic Nissan Juke with a full Nissan service history which has covered 17000 miles. It's three months outside warranty and now has a gearbox problem. Nissan tell me it needs a new gearbox. Surely a gearbox should last longer than 17000 miles?
