Driving on the highway I heard funny high pitched whine and stopped at a rest stop to check. I noticed red fluid that I think is transmission fluid splashed on firewall, under wheel well and pooled slightly on engine. Transmission fluid checked and is still marking full. My friend said maybe it was a hose. Car is not slipping in any gears. I am 200 miles from home and he advised drive carefully till he can check it out. Dealer wanted 100 diagnostic fee:(

    Just because the dealer sells the car doesn't mean they are the only ones that can fix or diagnose the problem. Use this website to find another option to have it checked out. I would do it as soon as possible.
