Thing that gets me in this is it's the shop I bought it from, and in their negotiations gave me the internal build list of what they all did before putting it on the lot. Hurried in the list a bit is a quart of 75W90, which after looking a bunch the last two days is the diff fluid. So they filled it up, which means they saw what they should have seen was a leak or evidence of one, but didn't do anything about it, diagnostically or otherwise. And now, first time I have it in after my "warranty" is out they tell me I need to change it. Yep.
