We own a 2005 Toyota Sienna LE. Yesterday, we were driving to a family vacation when we noticed the car was making an awful clank (metal against metal crashing) from the passenger windshield area. We checked and discovered that the metal top of the front strut mount broke.
We went to a mechanic here and he told us that the car is fine and drive-able. That if it’s was his car he’ll return home and have it fixed there. The drive is 8 hrs.
Is he right? Or would it be better to have it replaced right here? We leave on Tuesday.
