There was dried oil in the close up but it was pouring out further back nearer to the wheel, or it looks like it to me. That's not so good.

Pic taken during oil change. Would probably get a "normal operation" from dealer though.

Unfortunately, you're probably right.

I have the same leak on mine, noticed it at 4K miles when I was doing the first oil change. Took it to the dealership and they said it was assembly lube seeping out. At the time, simply said okay and that I would keep an eye on the oil level to make sure its not oil. While I have not noticed any major loss of oil, it is still seeping out and I have almost 30K miles on my car in about a year. Thinking maybe its time to have them revisit this issue and fix it before 36K miles. =)

The dealership ended up replacing the rear seal on mine. In the paperwork, it said they performed a die test to confirm it was indeed an oil leak. It took them a week to get the part in, but at least they fixed it. I have not yet had time to get underneath the car and verify the repair, but am hoping to sometime in the near future.
