2013, Fluid leak 39** miles

Not sure where it's coming from???? Just a few drops on the bottom of the trans right where it meets the engine. Surely not the rear main!?!?!?!?!
Have an appt on Monday with the dealer. Not even 4,000 miles, no off-roading, just my wife driving to work.

Looks to be a possible rear main leak, unless something is dripping down from higher up. That sucks to have that on a brand new vehicle but it seems to happen. My brother bought a 2010 rubicon and on the drive home the transfer case rear seal popped out and shot fluid everywhere in the gas station parking lot. We were adjusting the mirrors and doing a walk around litterally left the dealership 20 mins earlier. The jeep had under 20 miles on it, and had to be towed back to the dealer. And they replaced it and it popped out again, finally fixed after the second visit but they also scratched the **** out of the hood had to have it buffed.

And the verdict is................. Rear main seal.
They ordered it today and should have it fixed tomorrow.

It happens. At least they know its happened, they have it on the computer and if you have any problems in the future with it, there is a record of it.
