Report: Rear Differential/Axle Seals are Prone to Leaks
Dodge Charger Problem
Drive Trains Affected: 2WD, RWD
Average Mileage: 60,945 mi (38,000 mi - 102,235 mi)
Rear differential and axle seals are prone to repeated leaks.
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.

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