The front right strut blew out and splattered oil all over the wheel well. I
have no idea how this happened, but it did.
The car has 46k miles, out of warranty.
Shall I replace with OEM part or with some other brand? What would be a good
ride, quiet replacement part (not interested in extreme or sports driving) ?
Also, shall I go to the Honda dealer or a trustworthy independent Honda
mechanic? I prefer the mechanic, but if there is any chance Honda will
warrant the repair, I'd rather take it the dealership.
Would like to hear your opinion.
