I have a 2011 kia sorento that was making a funny noise. I brought it to the dealer and they said the front struts are leaking and need to be replaced. It is 15k over warranty and they want $800. I also heard something about a recall..any thoughts?

Thanks for the input. On occasion (not all the time), I get the nagging feeling that I am getting screwed when I take my car to the dealer. I hate that it happens but it happens. Your answer helped settle me..

Your welcome and come again, anytime, thanks
