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.

Because of the leaks that were not noticed at the time. Going 60mph on the freeway the rear differential broke and car locked up.
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.
