Unless you hit an immovable object since taking delivery, that says "go back" all over it . . .

So was just told we must have hit a pothole or something. Bent Strut, Bent Rim, & a bubble in the tire(I didn't see that...). Doesn't suprise me on these damn Indiana roads!! Anyway of course it's not covered under warranty and it'll cost $1200 to repair. Waiting on an call back from Insurance to verify coverage. 2 hour drive home so do I risk it and drive it back or leave and get a rental to go home...hmmmm

Does anyone else drive your car.......? :shrug:


Curious how someone could do that much damage hitting a pothole, and not have noticed!

We have 2 smarts and they are used as Delivery vehicles for our pizza restaurant. I drive them frequently myself as well. I believe this happened the weekend of June 4th & 5th. It was the 7th when the Traction control light was reported to me. I drove it and it drove perfectly straight no pull nothing. I never would have guessed what I was told. Needless to say my drivers and I will be having a meeting to discuss proper reporting of these instances as it goes against the contract they have signed. I'm upset it happened but I'm more upset I wasn't told it happened! ImageUploadedByAutoGuide1465972308.668749.jpg

Mine has been like this since new. Everything up front looks normal. Do you have pictures of the damage by chance?

Wheel and tire coverage looks good right about now..that would be 50 bucks for me.
