Blown pinion seal

We'll to start off, today I had my car on a lift to change the oil. Just hit 12k miles. My car is 100% bone stock 2013 v6 auto with 2.73 gears... Well I noticed once it was on the lift that right under my rear end the entire bottom was completely saturated. So much so that it is getting on my exhaust pipes right in front of the rear end and also drips pooling in the middle. Has anyone else noticed this problem? It's going to the dealer Friday. The seal is not quite blown but it's more than just seeping out. Just wondering if anyone has had a similar issue or not.
Thanks

Mine was replaced under warranty at 52,000 miles.
It does make a mess under the car, I still need to get under mine and finish cleaning it up.

Mine leaks, but I haven't had it replaced. I've just been making sure it doesn't get low on fluid. 55k 2013 w/stock 3:31

Yep, had that exact thing happen on the passenger side around 58,000 miles. I went ahead and got gears done but I had them rebuild the entire diff.

I did gears, new seals and bearings, carbon clutch packs, new rear axle bearings (mine was starting to whine), new diff cover and brand new fluid with friction modifier.

All that put an end to all of the issues I was having. I did it all at once because it will just save labor in the long run as they have to take all of that out to replace gears anyway. Plus my car was at the mileage those seals start to fail.
