Well, add me to the list. Noticed a dime-size spot of oil on the garage floor yesterday as I was sweeping it out. I felt around the bottom of the strut, and sure enough, its leaking, mine is the driver's side front strut. 298 EASY miles on the car. Build date 02/06. I was hoping I would avoid this gremlin.
Now a couple important (and perhaps stupid) questions:
Obviously a leaking strut is a bad thing, but do I need to park the car until I can get it replaced? Is this a critical safety issue where I shouldn't be driving the car?
When I get the strut replaced, do I need to get the front end realigned or get anything else checked out, or is this just a bolt-in repair (like replacing a shock) with no change to the front end alignment or geometry?
