Looks like your CV axle might be done. Feel around the boot see if it is cracked anywhere. Are you getting any clicking. Noises when you turn?

The leak (black smudge) may be coming from the CV.

Not many other things to spit grease in there than the CV, but how the hell did that shaft get so rusty in 1k miles lol. Regardless should be covered under warranty unless it was changed behind Kmart by the nice little spanish guy and his three amigos.
