Just when you think your finances are in order and you're getting caught up, something else comes up to screw things up. Today I was turning right at an intersection and I pass by this same one everyday just about. Well, there was a car over the center line so I cut the corner too sharply. There was snow covering the side of the street I figured I'd just be plowing through a little snow --- no. I hit the curb full force with both front and rear passenger side tires. Dangit! I forgot that at this particular intersection the curb sticks out further than normal. I'm now getting "Service Vehicle Soon," and "Service Suspension SYS" on the DIC. It never fails.
The curb was pretty high. It slightly cracked the air dam on the bottom. That'* no biggie. The suspension/components didn't visibly look damaged. The curb itself was probably a good 5-6" high and I hit it going 15-20 MPH. The dealer told me that my car had "magnetic suspension." I don't think that'* true, but if it is, I can just imagine how $$$ that'* going to cost! The odd thing is that the alignment still seems to be o.k. It doesn't pull in either direction.
