The Toyota dealer says the struts - front: struts, mounts, insulations and boots are weak and corroded. Cost is $1,246 to replace. Is this reasonable for a 2008 Prius with 104,000 miles

Bring it to a reputable shop and get a Price and have them tell you if you need or not

An independent shop should be able to beat the dealer price by a considerable amount.

Maybe you already replaced the struts, but, for the benefit of those reading this thread... listen, if you want to preserve the same ride comfort as the original car, do yourself a favor and get the original struts directly from Toyota..... The KYB replacement struts result in a really harsh and jolting ride.
