Next oil change try a high mileage oil which has additives that may help swell the seal. In any case I would just live with the problem.

Rear seals used to be a common problem many, many years ago. It's been forever since I've heard anyone with that problem, although it's certainly possible. I'd say a second opinion is in order here.

It's a family car I don't beat on it .... It does see a lot of use.... My drive to and from work is 31 miles one way ..... It just started leaking ...
