    There is a TSB about rear differential. Dealer changed the fluid on my '06 with the new spec and all is well.

    From what I have read there is a Technical Service Bulletin for the dealer to change fluid in diff. (I didn't know it affected '08's though) From what I have read this will fix the problem....best luck

    Did you ever get this problem resolved? I have the same problem with my 2005. I can only avoid it if I reaaaaaaally baby the clutch.
