Hello all,

I have a 2016 Cruze and I also unfortunately have a very steep driveway (it is not a rolled curb for water movement, it just has a decently steep incline). I was wondering if bottoming out on an incline or decline continually would do damage to the car in a significant manner. Almost every sedan hits the bottom of their bumper, but I wanted to know if this would damage critical parts on a Cruze (that are not cosmetic) over time.

Also, does anyone know if solutions such as Bridjit would work on driveways that don't have rolled curbs?

Have you tried entering your driveway at an angle - almost sideways?

No wont really hurt unless is massivly angled, more then likely just make the nose scrape and ugly.. As mp ^ said come in at an angle see if it helps.. If not make a small side by side 2x4 ramps so it steps the cruze up and down.

To respond to fellow posters, angling the car works much better and there are times where sedans won't have the audible scraping sound.


It's just that to avoid much of the scraping, you'd have to angle it properly every time (both leaving and entering).


Can anyone confirm if some of the curb solutions also work on a steep driveway?

Wood would rot so quickly if I used 2x4.
