Leaking Struts

Tried search. Have a 3 year old 2011 with 20K miles. Got new front tires today at a place I trust. They said I had a leaky rear strut and I should go to the dealer because struts shouldn't be leaking at 20K. I'm past the bumper to bumper (time not miles). Anyone think Ill have any luck with the dealer?

I doubt it, but I suppose it's worth a try! Do you have lowering springs or any other suspension mods? If you're all stock, then your repair place is right, you shouldn't have leaky struts at 20k miles. But "stuff" happens. If you have to purchase new struts/shocks.....let me know before you do, I can get you a good deal on a set of Koni's!!!

Drivetrain warranty is 5 years.....bump-to-bumper is 3 years. Shocks/Struts would not be considered "drivetrain".
