Relax! Your car is designed to take MUCH MUCH more substantial punishment than what you have explained here. It is very difficult to determine the suspension travel distance of a particular car but be rest assured, since you have a fairly new car this small incident should not be something you should be worried about. For instance, I have almost done a ...

The power in the in pins 1 and 3 proves that fuse 19 is OK and that the PCM will turn on PGMFI relay #1 and further that said relay will supply power to the fuel pump relay (PGMFI relay #2). It does not prove that the relay is good. My next tests would be apply power to Pin #2 and see if the fuel pump activates. If not repair the pump. If the pump works ...

There probably isn't a lot to worry about from hitting a speed bump at 15mph over the recommended speed. The shocks are designed to take a beating. Over time they do wear out but since they are still relatively new I would doubt you'd see much damage from a single incident. The bottom line is that anything and everything on the car could sustain damage from ...

It is very possible to damage the struts and shocks on a small vehicle hitting a speed bump. It is more a vehicle weight, speed of impact issue and reaction time of the shock to absorb that energy rather than size of speed bump. I blew 4 MacPherson struts on a Toyota Corolla and the struts were after market replacements (Munroes). I doubt very much that ...

At most, you may have knocked the alignment out, however you probably didn't damage the suspension otherwise. If the shocks are really old, they can start to leak if you hit the bumpstops hard, however you probably didn't do much to the car if you didn't notice the suspension instantly collapse downwards or make noises/knocks/etc after you went over it. ...
