Not even 1500 miles, and already broke

I am new to this site, so if i placed this in the wrong place please dont "flame" me.Anyways, I have had my '13 SS for just about a month, not even 1500 miles on it, and its already in the shop. From what i could visually see, busted the rear passenger cv boot. The dealership (without getting it on the lift yesterday evening) said it sounded as if it were coming from the rear diff. hopefully they get it up today, they said it was pretty much first in line.

I've heard this happen on the V6's first I've heard on the SS. That sucks.

I wasnt even driving rough, I was already in gear, so no clutch dump, I just pressed the gas a little more to go around th guy in front of me... but heres my thing... I am completely bone stock. There are people pushing 5-600 on the same axles. my hardest run couldnt compare to some of the abuse ive read about people giving them.

Should be fixed tomorrow broke rear axle. Dont know if axle broke then broke this "nut" service shop decribed, or broke this said nut, in turn breaking the axle. Either way dealer says I should be on the road tomorrow. Really impressed with this dealership so far.

I'm right at 500 to the rear wheels and haven't had any issue including track days. Might just of been bad from day one and it just broke.
