They're definitely cursed. Mine was backed into the other day... in my own driveway -_- (luckily, the only part that got scratched was that cap that covers the tow hook screw hole)

Curious to know about @lazyluka 's wreck if people are posting pics of it on other forums already. Is your car the one that @SkitterSkotter posted?

I am a Toyota owner. :P

Anyway some pics attached. Will post more as the police report is finished and the dust settles.

The car did a few flips before falling down that bank onto it's roof. In daylight looks to be about 8m or so.

As mentioned both passenger and me are completely unhurt. Just saw my GF today, her arm is fine, it was a bit sore from the airbag, but now she is using it normally, so she has fully recovered.

You turned off the "nannies" didnt you? Maybe hold the vsc/trac button for 4 secs?

Dont answer this question. You can be held liable for your response.

"Driving normally" doesn't cause this. Unsafe speed for road conditons if ur car is suddenly sliding backwards.

What I mean by normal driving is that I wasn't over reving the engine, I wasn't trying to show off, I wasn't trying to drift, or anything silly. Just casually driving along a road like most of us would do on any given day.

I went back the next day and observed the car's driving over the same section of road. There is a dip in the road which upsets most of the cars and appears to send the cars slightly outwards.

BTW, stock Michelin Premacy HP tyres, stock suspension, stock everything and it was one of the rare rains we have had after a long dry summer.

Driving normally and off the road backwards in the same sentence does NOT compute.

I can see it happening, shit does happens guys.

I've seen cars end up in the woods for driving the speed limit in the highway and just simply slipping off gravel that wasn't post to be on the road.

There so many things that could go wrong at any given moment, the fact that it doesn't by it self is a miracle.

So you're telling me that driving at a speed that hinders your ability to judge the road surface is safe?
