I have a issue it seems w/ my Cruze, today I was rolling down the road & then I smell this awful smell like something is dead under my car mixed like something was burning. After inspecting the coolant its full, checked the oil its full, checked the brake fluid its full. Then I turn my wheel all the way to the left & got a couple pictures of some type of fluid, my initial thought was axle grease. However its really wet not really greasy at all really. Please see attached images.

Leaking shock?

Broken CV joint boot spewing lubricant?

Leaking shock maybe, but wouldn't you hear some sort of sound that would indicate the issue?, & see streams of leak that would show? Broken CV joint boot spewing lubricant, possible, but its not all over the inner finder plastic piece. just down on the brake hose a bit as shown in the picture & on that arm only.
A couple of ideas strike me like leaking windshield washer fluid, clutch oil (if you have a manual), ATF. Really just wild ask guesses at this point.

But if i were you id bring it in first thing tomorrow morning.
