I gotta vent this out, I was on the highway to pick up my friend, Just before the exist, I was following a jeep. Seconds later I see something big big on the road, later I recalled that it was a big piece of front bumper fallen off. of course the jeep just ran over it, it had clearence, and my car?...FU#$ FUC% FUC$..all I hear is bang! then I get off the highway, I went into gas station to check. My whole front end is cracked and front lip gone!!! I see the half piece of plastic gard underneath the car hanging and scratching the road. No front mesh, all the meshs had been ripped off.. The kidney grilles are croocked. .....all I know is I am ****ed. No front lip, gotta call eurostyle and buy his lip. GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!****!****!****!

That would be the definition of not driving accordin to road conditions.

ouch dude that exact same thing happened to my car last year. i lost most of the front end. i guess the only good thing if any is that you can get excited about shopping for a new front end .

Bro, same thing happened to me except, with me it was a rock/boulder


A jeep went over it and cleared it on the highway, and beucase I was behind the jeep in the same lane, I rolled over the boulder (about 1 foot high) with my ford probe. I stopped at the exit at Mississauga Rd. and QEW, and looked under my car, and there was no damage at all, NONE, I was soooo lucky, as I kept going down mississauga road, I noticed like 4 or 5 more cars checking their bumpers and under their cars.

That sucks. Did you report it as damage by road debris to the Ministry of Transportation?
