    My wagon survived...

    I was hesitant to post this at first because it is a little embarising...

    two weeks ago I was in a new parking lot driving about 10mph and all of sudden my front end dips down and I bottom out and the the rear does the same.

    I get out of my 2004 WRX Wagon and I find I drove over a sink hole in the black top. It was about 8" deepand 3.5' wide.

    I got home and took a look under the front and I scaped the engine undercover pretty good but other than that I can't see any damage to front or rear, except that now my front bumper has more wiggle than it did before.

    There did not seem to be any damage to the rear at all (muffler was fine).

    This is my first WRX, and man these things are built well!

    I was wondering if there is anything else I should have chaecked after my experience with the crater?

    I was going to replace the bumper anyway, now my wife will give the thumbs up.

    Thanks for any input you might have.

    Mr. V.

    Hello Mr V welcome to the site always good to have new peeps getting in the mix.

    Obviously bottoming out in the crater was a little scarey................however I think you executed the plan with percision as now the missus has agreed to replace the front spoiler ( good us men are clever )

    Pretty much these cars are hardcore good to hear that you have checked it over, just in case !!

    Obviuously considering the speed I would have thought this would have caused cosmectic damage only and you shuold be fine.

    When you get the chance check out some fourm gallery pic's !!

    and if you get stuck on the site Weasel555 is a good point of contact !!
