    Bottoming out with 2015 wrx

    Is it just me or does this car bottom out more than most stock cars? seems like I bottom out way more then. My previous cars like a accord, civic , and Camry. I seriously see a tiny driveway hump or speed bump and I get all nervous now.

    I didn't check yet on 2015, but 2011 had entrance angle 12deg. Just be careful go with tires first and it will be fine.

    It has less clearance and bottoms out easier than than the Miata I traded in for it. I was surprised.

    This happens to me very frequently, and yes I am very paranoid everywhere I go. This car bottoms out more frequently than may 06 rsx s. when I pull out of m driveway if I don't pull out at an angle it scrapes, and if I have my wife and kids in the car it rubs unless I am almost sideways. and just so we are clear all passengers together weigh about 420. I have to completely avoid the speed bumps at work.

    Yep. Most stock cars are better at handling those speed bumps and driveways of your local shopping mall. I belly rolled a good sized granite cobblestone when I <ahem>, took a fire road shortcut awhile back. No damage done though. I'm pretty happy with the factory undercarriage so far.
