Damage from hitting a pothole?


Damage from hitting a pothole can result in a few problems you may notice with your vehicle.  Here are the top 4 things to look for after you have hit a pothole:

1. Wheel or Tire Damage
Check for scuff marks, cuts, scrapes, or chips out the tires.

2. Suspension System Damage
You’ll notice a lot of bouncing, especially over rough terrain or over speed bumps making it hard to drive.

3. Alignment Damage
You may notice your car has started pulling to the side.

4. Steering Problems
Your car may be shaking, swaying or steering oddly and when driving around turns you may even hear rattling.

So next time you are looking for damage from hitting a pothole, keep these 4 things in mind.
