    it's really hard to tell where that is still under the car... looks close to the steering rack, maybe power steering fluid, or maybe you spilled some oil?

    Clean it off, spray brake cleener on it, drive a while, see if it comes back

    Well.........is it engine oil? Or transmission oil? Or antifreeze? That would be the first question is what fluid is it. That would make it easier to then rule out other components. It should be pretty easier to find the leak on a new car. Buy a mechanics mirror.
