Our 2008 Charger is in the shop today to change a leaking axle seal for a total of $352.00. When I looked online it show that the axle seal is only around $26.00. Quite a markup or considerable amount of labor.

ABS light came on, took it to the dealer, diagnosed right rear speed sensor. Replaced, but still a problem with the ABS light. Back to the dealer and now it was the axle shaft speed sensor reluctor ring. Replaced the assembly and now the axle seal leaks. Wish I would have replaced the $25 seal while I was in there. 2
Upon AAA inspection to prep car for winter they found right rear axle oil leak. Will be contacting dealer as I have a warranty and see if this is covered or if it's out of pocket.
