After a rear-end collision, your car’s alignment may be thrown off. A wheel alignment will help get your car back in alignment, which can help it run more smoothly and last longer. Having the car aligned after a rear-end collision is essential because if the wheels aren’t aligned correctly, it can cause further damage to your vehicle. This can include your steering, tires, and troubles staying in your lane.
In a rear-end collision, the force of the impact is transferred through the vehicle’s frame and into the transmission. Because of this, it’s common for transmission issues to arise after a rear-end collision.
The transmission is essentially an engine that transfers power from the engine to the wheels or other moving parts of a vehicle. Having your transmission damaged in a rear-end collision can cause severe problems with your car’s ability to move forward, backward, or even stop at all.
Internal Body Damage
The collision of a vehicle and another object can cause substantial damage to the vehicle’s internal components, including the engine, transmission, steering wheel, and suspension. The force of the impact causes these pieces to move rapidly in one direction or another, and as a result, they may break or shatter. The resulting debris can cause injury to anyone who is inside the vehicle at the time of impact.
