Oil Leak

Less than 300 miles and I have a pretty bad oil leak. Anybody else see this issue?

Not that I've been aware of, and I have over 2,600 KMS on my 2015.

Where exactly is that on the engine and I'll look, but I've never seen anything on mine?

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

I've notice a spot or two in my garage only after sitting up for a while.
The bottom side on my motor is a bit greasy and I need to clean it up but that may have to wait till spring.

There is a Overfill Tube from the gas tank. Runs underneath and just behind the engine. I get a couple of drops once in awhile. Heat expansion inside the tank.

Yes I get that on the odd occasion after filling up the tank.

My dealer found that the neutral safety switch is cracked in several places. They had to order a new one.
