Well this is my first post and was really not the subject I'd want to kick it off with, but such is life... I have a 2014 GC Overland 4x4 V8
Today I was making a right turn and ran over a curb (and there must have been something sticking out of the curb/ground, because it left a gash in my right rear tire and was pretty jarring. I guess I am still learning (the hard way) that this jeep can make tighter turns than my previous acura.
Immediately my tire pressure alert came on and i turned into a gas station to change the tire. Luckily I have a full size spare and other than getting my clothes filthy, i was able to change the tire (with the help of a good summaritan) pretty quickly. So far so good...
Then I get back into my car and the tire monitoring light came on (I expected that since the sensor is in a flat tire, and the ESC error light came on (this I wasnt expecting). Also, it looks like my alignment is jacked up because on the two mile ride home, my wheel is turned 30 degrees right in order to drive straight.
Has this happened to anyone else or does anyone have any ideas what is going on here? I am hoping to do a little research before going to the dealer and paying a grand to figure it out and fix it. Do you think I did some real damage to the ESC/alignment or could the just be the result of a flat tire and an easy fix? (please say the latter!) Believe it or not this is the first tire I have gotten in 20 years... unfortunately it was on my brand new beloved jeep... BAD DAY!
