    just hit a curb

    i was driving and took a swerve going a lil to fast i guess. i was going about 30 and when i hit the patch of water my whole car turned sideways. it popped over the curb and into a flower garden. the car seems to be driving fine but the whole front end is scratched up. is there anything i should check before i drive it again. i drove it home and it seemed fine but im still afraid there is some hidden damage

    could be a number of things but im sure your fine if the car drives fine, next time you take it out, let go of the wheel when theres noone around you and see if the car pulls to a side

    yea im 17 and just finished paying for the car. im paying about 400 a month for insurance. its crazy because i haven't gotten in a single accident ( except for hitting the curb today ) and haven't gotten a ticket. but if i do get in a wreck i have complete coverage

    I would think at a minimum the air dam under the front would be busted. I would check your rims to and make sure they aren't bent but if you're not feeling anything in the steering wheel I doubt that's the case.

    You guys can't let a little bump scare ya into not driving your cars, Especially in the rain!! Learn a little more control of the car. Go to a closed road or parking lot when its wet and get to feel your cars reactions once it starts sliding!! Trust me this will save you butt ALOT!! Thats how I learned Drifting. If your not use to the rear end kicking out when its wet you reactions will be terrible! just expect it to happen and you won't hurt your car! The more you practice sliding it around, (NON STUPID) the better driver you will become and the more situations you will be able to save your butt with.
