My 2004 Toyota Corolla Ascent Hatchback (ZZE122)


Recommended Posts

Nice and tidy looking car... Nudge bar for roos? or piece of mind?

Nah, thought it might look good on the front. Judging by that picture that i posted above it looks pretty good. Bit of peace of mind as well, as I previously pranged my Mum's 2000 RAV4 and that didn't have anything to protect it on the front and caused quite alot of damage. - Will post more pictures as I do more to my car!

Cant say im a fan of a nudge bar on anything, not even 4x4's.

From my experience with 4x4's nudge bars don't do anything but bend the chassis in an accident, hence why a lot of 4x4's run full bull bars where if in an accident it bends the mounts on the bar rather than anything else.

This is mostly common in the newer 4x4's as the old Land Rovers and Cruisers from the 60-80's have a chassis as tough as tough can be! Chassis arent the same as they used to be...

My point is, you may cause less visual damage, but the front of the cars are supposed to crumple rather than be that solid in a crash and if it is made that solid then something is going to give somewhere else in the car.

IMO, dont spend the money on a nudge bar and put it to full comp insurance!

Regardless, its good to see you being productive with your car :)
