My 2003 Honda Accord has 240,000 miles. How long do struts last?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Mirella, Struts usually get a good run for 120k-160k pushing the envelope. Having the need of strut replacement at 240k is to be expected, as Well as tie rod ends, and alignment.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Greetings Mirella, The manufactures claim struts last for approx. 50,000 to 60,000 miles. But it depends on where you live, the driving conditions, your driving habits and the year and make of a vehicle.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube Struts deteriorate gradually but typically 60,000 miles or so.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at That's a lot of miles on original struts. Usually depends on how & where you're driving. You can test them yourself & see how they react to your weight on them, or you can take a look and see if they're moist or greasy.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Most strut manufacturer's will tell you 40-80,000 miles. At 240,000 you might be better off doing quick struts as the springs tend to get weaker with higher mileage.
