Not in the least common. Look up in there, it sure seems other parts are compromised. Maybe ab air temp sensor has been damaged. Any light lit up on the dash?

Nothing on the dash. But I hit a curb and that fender came off. Now I'm starting to think it hurt the mechanics; it feels as if the left-front side of the car is doing no work. Very slow moving and a little noisy.

Have you noticed any extremely hot temps coming from the brake caliper or rotor from the left front wheel that took damage? The ABS sensor or cailper may have been damaged during the accident.
