Honda HR-V Suspension Carnage

If there’s anything that can draw a small crowd of mechanics, it’s a car that’s gotten some impressive damage from a crash. Here’s a few pictures of a Honda HR-V that was sitting outside our body shop.

They must’ve rammed the right front into something really hard. The side airbags went off, and the steering knuckle completely snapped. The CV joint came apart, and the lower control arm broke off of the subframe. Impressively, the tie rod looks completely fine and is the only thing holding the knuckle and wheel onto the car.

The sway bar link is bent to almost 90 degrees, but didn’t break.

Another close up shot. You can see that the wheel speed sensor wire broke, but the brake hose looks like it’s still intact.
