Driver side front strut failed ~6 months ago. I was ~2000 miles over
warranty. Wrote a letter to Honda USA, and they said they would cover
the failed strut, and only the failed strut.
Went to the dealership for the service and offered to pay for the other
strut because I had heard you should have them replaced in pairs.
Dealership recommended I only replace the one strut because car only
had 38000 miles on it and "Driver weight stresses the driver side
strut, more than passenger side. Therefore driver side wears much
faster." They replaced only the one side. Slight pull to right in the
car, but I was told that will go away as the new strut wears.
Now, 4 months after the service, 5000 miles later, car still pulls and
just noticed car leans to the driver side about an inch. I figure this
is the cause of the pull.
What need to be done here? Have I been screwed beyond belief? Is there
a height adjustment that would level the car?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
