From the pictures this appears to be well under a 40 MPH crash. And the airbags would have deployed.

In any event, contact the leasing company and your insurer and get the matter addressed. It...

It appears to be a relatively minor typical accident, fully repairable, especially as the airbags did not deploy (which typically only takes ~15 MPH to be triggered).

Get it fixed, move on.

Yes, when braking there is more weight on the front wheels. This is the same whether FWD, RWD, or AWD. And I never stated otherwise. :)

FWD and AWD understeer is a result of both driving the...

No.

If this were true, front wheel drive cars would have the best handling. But they unarguably do not and we all know this to be true.

For example, instead of "pulling action" which...

As I recall, you can drive with the door open with the seat belt on if you need to be able to see through the open door.

It is indeed Federal law, amber on the side and red on the rear.


It is remarkably stupid to black them out.

Yes, a cheaply made oil filter housing thingee is inexpensive, but it is one more unnecessary single-purpose tool one doe not need.

You do not need a special tool for the plastic oil filter cap, just a rag/towel and a channel lock. Just be thoughtful and gentle.

An oil change on these cars is exceedingly simple and quick.

Effective headlight alignment will not not make the bulbs physically brighter, but subjectively you will have much more light with which to see as it is now where you need it.

I do not need yet further convincing you are one of those others. :rofl:

It varies. Sometimes gutting the cat and/or muffler sounds good; sometimes, not.

Also, people like different types of sound. I dislike the ringing of an empty muffler. Others like the sound.

Hmmm . . .

Improperly maintained, wrong parts, needs front and rear pads and rotors at 25,000 miles . . .
