Transmission - Rear main seal leak
I recently took my '06 Mazda 6 in for an oil change, and was informed that I have a "rear main seal leak". I bought my car new, it now has 52k (2k more than the warranty of course). It's my understanding that this problem shouldn't be occurring until much later. Dealer says it's a $30 part but $1100 in labor.
Any suggestions? Has anyone else run into this problem? Nobody wants to shell out $1100 for repairs when they're still paying on their car.
