this is a repost because i think i posted the other one in the wrong place.

anyways,


ugh... i'm so mad at myself right now. so yesterday i lost control of the car and fell into a ditch on the side of the road. the mazda has front and rear bumper damage and it looks like there's also damage to the suspension because as i drove the car (after the accident) going up the driveway, i heard a screeching sound when the rear wheels hit the bump. the left side to be exact. also, when i was driving it when the car got home, i took my hands off the steering wheel and let it go about 1.5 k rpms and it went straight. but my dad will probably redo the alignment. and under the car there's no structural damage to the chasis but there's huge scratches on the suspension. and definitely i have to replace the front and back bumpers. there's also a lot of dirt under the car and i think the exhaust system might be affected. there's a chance the exhaust piping is now misaligned. but i cannot see any brake fluid left. i just got home from school and havent taken a look at the car, but i'll take a look and try to find any leaking fluids and give you an update. also, i dont think there's any damage to the engine bay, only the bumper. and the reason the front bumper is damaged is because it got stuck on the dirt as they were pulling it out. do you think theres anything wrong with the engine/transmission compartment? oh yea, from a quick inspection, the fluid levels are all unaffected as of last night, but the brake fluid seems to be empty. why is that? could i have severed the tubes or something?


AND THE MAJOR QUESTION I WANT TO ASK IS WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO TO GET THE CAR TO TIP TOP SHAPE AGAIN? MONEY IS NOT GOING TO BE AN ISSUE BECAUSE THE INSURANCE WILL PAY FOR EVERYTHING.

i learned alot from this, and from this point on, i'm gonna baby my car and i promised to it to not drive it hard or corner it hard anymore.
