That is a typical warranty on repairs at a dealership. The problem will need to be diagnosed and see why it is leaking, then you may have a case, but after 2 years/20,000 miles it may be very difficult to find any fault with their repairs.

I just had the same thing happen and $651.00 dollars later it is fixed, but I was told by the mechanic that the 3400 model engine does that because the dex-cool eats the seal. Is that not a recall?
