From what I hear you are lucky the car was not more severely damaged. I am not sure why you would be under the impression that your wife driving into a puddle should be covered by warranty........I would certainly think that if I hit a tree, it would not be a warranty claim. Maybe I misunderstood the context in which you spoke about warranty? Skip 98 900SET 99 9-3 SE HOT
