Hi, my 2013 LE apparently has a rear main seal leak at 101K miles. I'm mostly curious how long this normally takes to replace. The dealer says it'll be $2300 and they'll have to keep it for 2-3 days. Does that sound right? I know they have to remove the transmission and everything, but that still seems like a lot.
Forgot to add it's automatic, AWD.

I myself would roll the dice and go out and buy 5 qrts of Mobil 1 High Mileage oil or what I used was full synthetic Pennzoil High Mileage, to expand the oil seals a bit. My daughters 97,000 Civic was leaking oil at quite a rate, my driveway did not like. I changed the oil and left the filter alone. 4 days later I bought some engine cleaner sprayed the engine down, and sprayed the driveway down with Simple Green and there is no oil dripping on my driveway but 1 drop. After 4-5 months. The motor looks for the most part oil free.
