Fairly Solid Rear Bumper?

My wife was hit in the back last Friday.. (all’s well with her). She was stopped with others awaiting a Left Hand Turn and the fella hit her pretty square in the back with a small pickup truck slowing from? 30 Mph to an “almost” a stop. Must have been bumper to bumper almost dead center. When she called me I asked her if the lights are all working and does the hatch open close?… all very functional and pretty much untouched. Her response to the fella was “You didn’t see my Turn & Brake Lights?”

When I got home I crawled underneath to see if any metal was moved and or pushed into the Spare Tire Well and was pleased to find that we have a fairly substantial box beam bumper (under the cover) and that all looked good.

Looks like a trip to the Dealer’s Shop for further inspection and a Bumper Cover repair / replacement is in order.

Glad to know the bumper is strong, but most importantly is that your wife is fine. With a vehicle this small, I do worry about safety a lot.
