The rear axle pinion seal may leak causing fluid loss and possible internal rear end damage. Replacing the faulty seal will commonly correct this concern. Some 2005-2007 models have been recalled for this issue.

    The rear is leaking and I looked it up and it is recalled so I call them about it and they told me it is vin spesific and my vin didnt match. It doesnt make any sense that all these people would have the same probalem. Im sure its the same seal even though they say its different. If you held the two seals next to each other im sure they are the same. Its a crock. GM just doesnt want to fes up to it. We need to make a statement and get it taking care of before someone's brakes and it takes someone's life in a accident.
