my front differential went out. Completely fried from what the dealership is saying. Noticed differential oil all over my front left tire then a grinding noise followed the day after the oil came spewing out. It's been at the dealership for 3 weeks, absolutely ridiculous. They have no idea why it happened on such a fairly new vehicle. Does anyone know why this would happen? Thank you.
