Leaking Fluids

About to hit the trail for my first night drive and as I pulled out of my buddies garage he noticed some oil on the concrete. When we got under there we found oil leaking from the rear engine main seal and the right side differential inner tube seal was leaking. He told me his brother's 2013 Sport did the same thing. When I took it to dealer this morning the service manager was not surprised at all. The parts will take 5-7 days to get here and then it will be in the shop for a day. Really disappointed with the lack of quality on my Jeep, this is the 4th and 5th separate issue, it's all been fixed under warranty, but I haven't driven this thing for more than 3 months at a time before having to take it into the shop. It's my first Jeep and I'm hooked, but I'm not sure I'll be able to afford it after the warranty runs out.

I assume yours is a 2014? I am wondering just how widespread this issue is. I can't imagine Chrysler is very happy about this issue, since the 3.6 is used is almost every vehicle they make. They'll be bleeding money if this is a common problem.

I just noticed a puddle of oil under my 2014 6-speed manual yesterday, and it looks to me like it is the rear main seal, also.

Just curious, is yours a 6-speed manual?

15+ K miles on our 2013 JKU, it's a daily driver plus, weekend trail rider, and beach runner. We have had no leaks of any kind and I spend a good bit of time under it and always look for that sort of thing ( I run 0-20W pure synthetic which will leak if seal is bad). It stinks having those kinds of issues, they did change from the type originally installed according to some Mopar sites that I looked at. The fix should be a better seal than the original. Good luck.

We have about 25k on our 2013 and Mike hasn't hand any leaks either...
