Question about 2000 Lexus LX470
Car bounces like there are no shock absorbers in the front. Dealer said hydraulic oil in the automatic height adjustment system must have been contaminated. This resulted in the seals in the struts to fail whick resulted in hydraulic oil leaking into the struts. I bought the SUV two years ago and took it to the dealer for a 90,000 mile inspection. At that time the dealer flushed the hydraulic system and replaced the oil at about 95,000 miles. Vehicle now has 120,000 miles. Cost to repair is $3,200. This is about $2,200 for parts, $100 for hydraulic fluid and $900 labor. Can someone tell me if I am being told the truth or do these systems fail for some other reason. Also, is it realistic that two years after having the oil flushed that the seals fail due to contamination in the system prior to two years ago. Also would like to know if I have any alternatives.
You are being told the truth about the repair and its costs...i can guarantee that
