My new 2020 Rubi (2300 miles) has been leaving stains on the garage floor. Went and looked, and it’s leaking pink fluid. Also on several other seals (where I don’t see a leak), there’s a weird gunk that honestly looks like pizza sauce.

Any other 2020s have this issue? Going to the dealer Monday.

I believe the pink fluid in the photos is dried coolant. There may be leaks where the fluid buildup is visually apparent, or somewhere above where the fluid is building up (ie: its dripping down).

Be sure to point out each spot to the service writer. Dealership should be able to fix the issue fairly easy.

My '18 had a similar issue - small leak fixed at the dealer in one visit.

Ugh I was hoping it wasn't -- it has a water-like consistency, and doesn't smell like anything (and was under the impression coolant smells...not great).

Sorry looks like drive thru carwash soap.

Coolant, let dealer check out and take care of. Probably bad or improperly tightened clamp

Sorry to hear but easy fix. Mine with 250 miles is at the dealer since Thursday with transmission pan gasket leak. Parts not in until Monday- said I probably won't get it back until this coming Friday. Ridiculous how little parts inventory they keep for these simple repairs.
