2008 GT Oil Leak

Newbie here.
I have a 2008 G6 GT with 9,000 miles on it. I noticed a spot of oil in my driveway. I looked under the car only to see pan caked with oil and dirt. I took it to a local mechanic and he said it was a rear seal oil leak. I'm taking it to the dealer next week. Good thing for a warranty. Anyone else heard of this or think it's a big issue? I will keep everyone updated on the issue.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Tom

No, if you have the rear seal replaced you should be good to go for a long time.

Oil leak

Got the G6 GT back from the dealership. They found that the rear main seal and the front oil seal were leaking..... Crazy stuff I thought. They also replaced the front crankcase cover. Thank goodness for a warranty. I would have been a lot more sour about this situation if the money came out of my own pocket. Hope this isin't a start of bad things to come because I really like this car.
Thanks for any input.
Tom

You shouldn't have any more problems if they did it right. Glad to hear that the warranty took care of it for you.
