Is it possible hitting a pot hole causes a radiator to crack?

Asked by Oct 03, 2014 at 05:22 PM about the 2006 Dodge Charger RT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After hitting a pot hole, the right passenger
side rotor was damaged and dam near
came off. I had it towed to the dealership,
used my insurance, and they only focused
that front rotor. If the the radiator was
damaged, in any way, would they know?
Are they supposed to tell the customer or
insurance company??

Only if they saw the leak or damage.

It would probably take a pretty hard pot hole hit to crack the radiator and it would have shown up immediately. I would get the leak fixed and move on.
