Hit a kerb in the Twingo :(

Illustration for article titled Hit a kerb in the Twingo :(

Some tool in a Qashqai coming the other way came across the centreline and while avoiding them i had a glancing blow with a kerb. I felt the car shuffle and scrape along it but it wasn’t an especially heavy hit. I was doing about 30mph.


I checked the tyre before continuing and the sidewall was fine, no damage to the wheel rim either. What else would you guys suggest checking? I’ll jack the car up and check for play in the suspension, plus a visual inspection. It still drives well and doesn’t pull, but the alignment might be very slightly off. As in the wheel position when going straight, might be a couple degrees off. The steering is so sensitive in the thing it’s hard to tell small alignment changes. I’ll get that checked too regardless.
