Oil Leak - Struts needed replacement.

(2003 Honda Civic)
in Inkster, MI on April 15, 2013
I got my Honda Civic 2003 Coupe oil change last week.They told me my oil was leaking and i need to get my Struts changed.They said its not anything major now and it would cost me 600 for the Struts and 600 for the labor.I want to avoid getting anything repaired this month.Should i manually put the oil from above if the oil keeps leaking.

its common for front struts to go bad on earlier civics but, $1200 seems high. The front struts are around $250 each x2 and labor plus alignment should be around $850

you definitely cant add oil to a strut

Not to the strut.But I can add oil to the engine.And how much does it cost since 1200 sounds a lot.
