Only 200 miles and it's already been in for service

Pinion seal on the transfer case was bad, leaking tranny fluid. Hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

Won't keep me from loving my Blackberry limited though.

Do you have the V6 or V8? i noticed tranny fluid on the bottom of my engine oil pan at 200 miles. The dealer claims it was overflow from the power steering pump when it was filled. I haven't noticed any puddles or even drips so hope that is really the case.

It's a V8.

One thing to note about that pinion seal. The location of it is above the fluid line so only so much will leak out before it stops and apparently will not damage the transfer case. Smart engineering
