Well, I’m an idiot. While parking my new 2012 Subaru Outback in my parking space I bumped the concrete wall head on in the front of my space with my bumper. My foot was on the brake, but I’m not sure how fast I was going. This is my first new car that I bought after getting my first real job and so I’m a bit worried about my new pride and joy. I can’t see any scratches or dents on the front bumper. I drove it 100 miles afterwards with the radio up and the AC on full blast (so I couldn’t hear anything) and it seemed fine.
My questions are: could I have caused any damage to anything under the hood, the frame, tires, bearings, or brake systems, etc? Should I take it into the dealer to get it checked out – if so, what should I have them look at?
