    Cheap-ass Chinese metal

    The only vehicle i ever saw with damage was a guys car on the front passenger side. Turns out he shouldn’t have put his 600lbs babby momma in his ride.

    It looks like the strut’s held by plastic. If so, a small pothole could have done that much damage.

    Must be from a Yugo.

    Living on a washboard dirt road, I’ve found the solution to the beating the car takes.
    Drive fast enough that your tires only hit the tops of the washboard. For me and my road, it’s about 40-45 MPH. I used to live on one where 60 mph wasn’t quite fast enough.
    The only real downside is curves, when you’re only hitting tops, your tires aren’t connected to the road very often, and it’s real easy to leave the road.

      Yeah, I found out a long time ago it’s easier on your back and the vehicle to drive them fast. It also helps to drive on the right side of the road.

      Works for speed bumps too. Don’t slow down for them, just rocket over.

    looks like it is a plastic front end. Needs a disclaimer “For Highway Use Only” I would go back to the dealer on this one.

    The two worst washboard roads I’ve ever driven were a couple of months ago, both in New Mexico. One was about 50 miles round trip, the other about the same one way. Pulling a trailer, so flying the tops was out. Rattled the receiver hitch pin right out, Thank G-d for the chains.

    That exact thing happened to my friend’s Toyota 4Runner. He limped 22 miles back to the highway then another 7 into town.

    Another benefit of body on frame construction.

  13. Granny says:

    That’s a shocker.

  14. Bacon says:

    What’s with all the drilled holes along the break?

  15. Sanders says:

    Something similar happened to my ’86 Dodge Charger Shelby (a souped-up Dodge Omni). At the time, I lived up a 5 mile long rough dirt road, and had to drive it every day to and from work. The guys at a Sears auto center were able to weld it up for me.

    That car was a lemon from the get-go. One of the best days of my life is when I traded it off for an F-150.
