Is damage to the rear bumper repairable? or will it need to be replaced?

    Hard to say from those photos---should be repairable but if that's a crack and not a seam, that might be more labor intensive than it's worth. A body shop would have to take a close look at calculate the hours of labor to repair that bumper vs. just taking it off and putting on a new skin. Also, this being a relatively new vehicle, you might wish to opt for a new bumper if your insurance covers it.

    Hi,
    Yes Mr. Shiftright, I agreed with you. By seeing these pics.. I would suggest you don't replace the bumper, you can repair it and repairing a part of any vehicle is much cost saving than replacement.
