    Yeah, you don't want to be on the brakes hard with any car while hitting a bump or pothole.

    Yes, mine will do it to.
    I drive on a road everyday where right by the stop sign, the road has sort of a speed bump but not. I have to brake before I hit it because it will shake the shit outta my car.
