I had my 12K oil change today. Before I handed the service manager the keys, I told him there is a small spot of oiil on the ground under the differential. He had the service tech check it out - the passenger side output shaft has a small leak. As of right now, my leak is not bad enough to cause concern, but they recomended I have it fixed at the next oil change.
The service manage mentioned in the last month they have had 5 mangums, 8 300's and 3 chargers with the EXACT same problem (same side and everthing). I would recomend everyone have theirs checked just to be safe.
I had the same problem a few weeks ago. I brought it in to the dealership and they said the rear was over filled with fluid and it caused the gasket to leak on the bottom of the differential. I wasn't buying this but as long as it was fixed I didn't care what they said caused it. I've never heard of that happening before on any car. But they changed the fluid and gasket, I've checked it a few times since it's been fixed and so far everything has been fine.

5200 Miles, and I get a spot on the garage floor. It's a very lightly colored, thick oil leaking from the differential. Did the dealer offer any explanation, other then the diff being overfilled? Build date 8/05.
