OK so I went to wash the 1 week old brand new 2013 GC Trailhawk. When I backed it out of the garage there was a pinkish redish liquid. Maybe about 10 drops or so. I backed out the car and looked under. It was dripping from the bottom of the left front shock (drivers side) where it connects to the lower control arm. Also happens to be the lowest point of the car so I am not saying that is what it is coming from just where it was dripping off of.
Well I took it in. They claimed nothing was wrong. They couldn't see any of the liquid even though I showed them pictures in the garage. They said all fluids were full. They also weren't going to give my wife a rental wi only 600 miles on it. They finally did.
Maybe it's shock fluid? You can't really measure shock fluid soi don't know how you could verify it tough.
Well that is where it us coming from. They also said the brake fluid is the same color as the transmission fluid. Who knows. I take pictures of it each night. When I take it to a different dealer I am also going to scoop up some of the fluid and put in a baggy.
So I thought I would update everyone that care on this. As I stated back in June with only 1K miles on the car I took it in to Tuttle-Click Jeep (never again). The gave them pics of the leak, where it was coming from and even took in some in a baggy. They continued to tell me nothing was wrong.
Last week I was driving the car and all of a sudden it started to sound funny. Kind of like the Jeep was working really hard and especially on slow speed turns. I took it into where I bought it Huntington Beach Jeep (love them) and sure enough the power steering was fried. It was a leaky seal (that was the pink stuff) and had the idiots at TC been able to see and fix that then there would not have been anymore damage. Since they didn't there was enough fluid loss and wear and tear as I am now at 6K miles that the entire pump needed to be replaced. All is good now. Everything covered under warranty.
So beware of the pink fluid.
