    Shocks are a maintenance item, generally after the first 12/12, unless there was a blatant parts failure.
    C'mon now. 12k miles or 1 year for shocks?
    Some people are like slinkies, they're useless until you push them down the stairs.

    For wear conditions, yes. That's a common timeframe across the board, regardless of manufacturer. There are certainly out and out part failures that can occur at longer timeframes than that, but it's extremely rare. Potholes aren't part failures, much like excessive hills and subsequent brake wear isn't a part failure. Sorry.

    Lucy... oops! Sorry to throw in a shortened verbiage there.
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    Thank you to whoever advised my shimmy could be ice. It's all better now and I did go out before my trip to the airport and found some melting ice patches behind the hubcaps. I just flicked them away. I looove car problems that fix themselves!
    Count your blessings!
