2005 Honda Civic, 150,000 miles on it. Rear bumper had a problem. Problem got bigger. One day on the freeway, that sucker ripped and I could see it flopping around out of the side view mirror. I pulled over, tried to push it back into the snap-in brackets. No dice; flew off again, this time worse. Tape and fishing line wouldn’t hold it on; the third time, I just ripped it straight down, so that there’s only the rear and side part left – the other side is gone. Ripped it off with my bare hands, so this is just a thin piece of plastic. So – the auto body place tells me it’ll be $900 to replace.
Am I getting hosed, or is this legit?
If I want to do this myself, is this a bumper? A bumper cover? Something else?
