2010 Escape Leaking strut

Asked by Oct 22, 2013 at 11:48 AM about the 2010 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced my rear right strut a year and a half ago and now it is leaking again.  Ford won't cover it as the warranty is only good for a year.  They claim that it is likely road conditions but I travel primarily highway.  Anyone one else have this issue or know if this is a common problem with the 2010 model?  I would think that it indicates a bigger issue with the vehicle seeing as it has to be replaced twice within 2 years.

I've seen OEM shocks leak in that amount of time. Go with an aftermarket this time, Monre Sensatrac, replace in pairs.
