Damage may be sustained to your Fiat from driving through a pothole. This damage can cause premature wear and tear to the suspension and steering components of your Fiat. Your tyres and rims could also be damaged by potholes, but the shocks and struts take the biggest brunt of any damage.
The shocks compress and expand by using hydraulic oil to reduce the effects of uneven road surfaces on your car but large potholes can cause the shock or strut to bottom out, which then transfers the force to the coil or leaf springs of the vehicle suspension. In addition to these components, control arms, ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings and axle shafts are all susceptible to pothole damage.
If you have driven through a pothole, you don't know what damage may have been caused. Book a Safety Check with one of our Fiat trained technicians today, to ensure your safety and your car's reliability.
