Angry Hit my car off of the curb today!!! quote:

Hey guys, today when I was going to school I underestimated the road conditions, I was going around 50-60km/hr when I was taking a bend and I smacked the side of my car on the curb. I'm woundering if I could of done any serious damage to my car? I know I did something cause whenever I drive now my steering wheel shakes as if I have a flat tire which I'm hopping is the only problem. But do any of you know if it could be more serious and if it will cost me a fortune to fix? Thanks guys.

Anywhere from an alignment to bent/broken suspension components and damaged subframe.

so.... about $80 to $3000.

could I seriously have done $3000 dollars worth of damage going only 50/60km/hr? I didnt hit it directly or anything, just kinda bumped off it, it was in a bend and I tried to regain control before I hit the curb but I couldnt so I sorta bounced of it...

I did almost the exact same thing first snowfall... my car shook a bit and the steering wheel wasn't straight. It just needed an alignment and it was like it had never even happened.

i hit a curb at 30 km and smashed my steering column in, broken tie rod and leaking power steering fluid

as for you
I advise you to get your car checked by a mechanic
hopefully one you know well so they don't rip you off and all the other things that "could" go wrong

You'd be suprised how much damage 50/60km can cause. Get it checked out by a reliable mechanic.

You should get it checked out. Could be a variety of things. One thing I know for sure though, you'll need an alignment!

i hit a curb in a car i sued to own at maybe 60 k...totaled my car...over 6000 dollars damage on it including frame work and my entire passenger front side basically needed replacement :P

Definitely take it to a mechanic because if something is bent driving it will only make it worse

and depending on who you hit the curb angle and what not you can get off lucky...i sure didn't though sad day

Throw your mouse against the wall as hard as you can... and that's still a fraction of the forces you put on your car. Just cause it's big and made of metal doesn't mean it isn't fragile.
