Anyone experienced oil leak near the belt area? Is this common? 2018 Base with 22k miles.

It would be a "good idea" to clean up the oil residue present and determine where the seepage originates. That
would require checking back periodically after short time periods. With air being forced over the area, it makes
it difficult to understand the root source of any leak.


Good luck!

If it's still under warranty, take it in as is to show your service advisor. I wouldn't say rear main seal leaks on the 2.0 are common but are known to happen.

When I pick the car, odometer has added 24 miles. But on paperwork, it has added 2 miles. This is a mismatch. Is it normal to consume 24 miles to diagnose oil leak problem?

They want the oil to get hot to see where it may be leaking from.

What is 24 miles in the overall scheme of things?

Are you looking for the dealership to reimburse you for fuel used? Diminished value?


I would be glad to know they'd found the source of the seep...
