Oil Leakage

Has anyone ever experienced a brownish very sticky substance leaking from mid-under belly of car? Upon reversing have noticed it in middle of garage floor on 3 occasions. On board info states oil level good. Nothing grossly visualized upon looking at underbelly.

I only experienced something like this on another of my cars which is several years old and was told by my mechanic that it was normal as gaskets shrink and lose their sealing abilities. Depending on where the leakage may be, replacing the gaskets may be an expensive and time-comsuming endeavor, however, my mechanic fixed it by pouring some sort of oil additive to reinvigorate gaskets. I'm sure your car is still under warranty and you should ask your service center to have a look. Have you had an oil change lately? If so, it could be that your oil filter was not properly closed. So it is best to have your service center do the check -- just my 2 cents.

Could it be some of the anti corosion gunk they spray underneath the car? That stuff is pretty sticky.
