I did get the opportunity to see the car once its up on the jack.
I did Not see any cracks at all and the mechanic did not point me to any either. The boots are not new and they prob have some dirt on them - so what my I can see, I did not see any. The experienced mechanic did not see any.
At the top edge of the upper boot, there was some grease - did not come from a torn boot - this is what he wiped it. The shop was not busy and he took the time to check it.
He used a giant sized screw driver like device to push something. Told me that there was nothing wrong - said that he checked the end links too and they are fine.
Some of your comments worry me - it has been a reliable car so far. I still drive a 1987 Acura integra wth 159k. I changed all the suspension around 3yrs ago. Other than these, CV boots, timing belt, no other parts were ever changed.
I sought 2nd opinion and now what should I do other than getting rid of the car?
I will be going back to the Dealer and have him show these damages to me - just got off the phone. There had not been any recall on this car.
