Potholes: The Storm for Your Car

10/3/2021 (Permalink)

Hail, wind, and water damage are all the immediate problems that arise from a storm. But there’s another side effect of storms that takes time to form, but can cause just as much damage to your car. Storms are the main ingredient in the formation of potholes. And the deeper they get, the more damage they can do to your car if you ride over them. And sometimes the damage they do isn’t even apparent until it becomes a bigger problem. Firestone Complete Auto Care has a list of the problems that can start to pop up after you run over one too many potholes;

  • Tire puncture
  • Engine damage
  • Wheel rim damage
  • Exhaust system damage
  • Premature wear on shocks and struts
  • Steering system misalignment
  • Suspension damage, including broken components

When you feel your car run over a massive pothole, it is important to have some kind of idea of what kind of damage to look for. Otherwise, the problem could grow worse until it causes a massive accident. And the best defense against pothole damage to your car is to keep an eye out for them while you’re driving and try to avoid them as best you can. So drive safe and keep a close eye out.
