Vehicle is leaking severe amount of transmission fluid just at warranty mark. Dealer will not cover repair. There are a lot of complaints on internet in regard to this, it could cause a potential fire in vehicle or accident due to low levels of fluid, the control panel does not alert driver if transmission fluid level is low.
