so im driving down a back road. paved, but there is tire ruts. and i happened to be in the ruts. So something smashed against the front underside.

It appears there is an engine mount there. Looks like a swivel. I must have smashed that as it looks like the lowest point. and it appears bent.

I hope this picture works. i couldnt get a really good shot with my camera phone



can you see the mount or swivel whatever that is. The two piece of metal on each side appear to be flared out from the impact with the pavement. Do i have reason to be concerned or is this the way it is supposed to look anyways?

I would take it to the dealer if it was mine.

Forgot to ad that if it's serious damage your Car Insurance would cover the repairs or go after the district or county where you had the problem.

All im worried about right now is that metal flaps that stick down from the mount. Could anyone check theres and see if theres is bent like that or straight. If those are bent then i can contact the county.

go to the dealers and check if it looks the same on a similar model.
