Angry Reservoir Seal Leaking on 2008 GL450 - Need Advise

My 2008 GL450 has only 38,000 miles in it and dealer has indicated that the reservoir seal is leaking and given me an estimate of $125 for the repair.
I have read somewhere that this is a know issue and should have been recalled; should I go ahead and pay for the repair?

There was not a recall on the seal for your model.

You can double check at the NHSTA website.

it is a know issue. if it is leaking you dont want to let it leak too low. you will lose power steering and possibly cause further damage to more expensive components. if you are up for a state inspection soon it wont pass. power steering is the only fluid that cannot be leaking on a state inspection.
