Curb Your Enthusiasm… Hitting a Curb is a Big Deal

It’s that time of year where Kanata drivers find themselves slipping, sliding… and far too often hitting, bumping, or grazing a curb. After you’ve done so, you may breathe a sigh of relief thinking you may have gotten away with something… but you can’t be sure without a visit to a Kanata garage.  Why? Consider the following…

  • Even if you were going 10-20 kph, a curb impact can damage your Kanata tires and wheels.
  • If you are unfortunate enough to hit a curb, the impact jolts the connection between your steering system and wheels. This can cause damage that will prevent your car from steering correctly, especially during winter.
  • Hitting a curb can shock and does impact your Kanata car’s control system and suspensions.
  • When you hit a curb, you can damage the wheel hub, spindle, or both.

It’s better to be safe than sorry – if you hit a curb, bring your car into a Kanata garage like G&I to make sure your car didn’t suffer any damage that puts you and your passengers in peril.
