Involuntary off-roading -- now paranoid!
I had a pretty dumb thing happen to my car last night (or rather, I did something dumb to the car). Making a U-turn on a narrow road in a semi-rural area, I drove onto what in the darkness looked like just a dirt shoulder by the roadside. What I didn't see was that there was about a five-inch ledge from the pavement to the sandy ground underneath!
Long story short, I ended up with my car diagonally half on/half off the road, one rear tire stuck in the soft sand, the other on the pavement. In the process, I banged the undercarriage pretty hard on the ledge. I was unable to get any traction to the wheels, and all the usual tricks (rocking the car, etc.) did no good. I ended up having to call a tow truck.
I was afraid I'd bent/broken the axle or bent the wheel or something like that, but I lucked out, and the car drives fine. The tow truck driver and I checked underneath, and nothing looked damaged to either of us. There's no obvious indication of damage.
My question is, is there anything I need to be looking out for? Everything looks and feels OK, but I'm now paranoid about the condition of the car. If it's driving fine and there are no leaks or any wobbly wheels or anything at this point, am I probably in the clear? Or if not, what are the things that could go wrong?
