On impact, my left rear wheel lifted up. But I also heard a brief, ~2 second, scraping noise. I am curious if that was the sound of friction by the underside of my vehicle making contact. Straight car meets curved edge of median.
Should I be too worried? Since I was accelerating from a complete stop at a red light, I know I wasn’t going very fast at all. Maybe around 10mph.
I pulled over and laid on my stomach to check the underside of my car. Nothing appeared loose or falling off. No punctures in the tire or abrasions.
Still, I know very little about cars except how to drive them. So, I am asking for peace of mind.
" So I know little about cars, except how to drive them."
Not sure if I agree with that whole statement. Also doubt that turning at 10 mph would wipe you out against a curb. Get it checked out, If you did grind something against the curb, you want to get some primer and pain on it.
I would suggest getting a 4 wheel alignment check. Ten MPH may not sound like much but with going on 3000 pounds of car applied there is certainly a possibility of something being bent.
Better to find out now rather than discover later tires are wearing out prematurely.
