I recently backed into a tree at 2 mph and bumper and driver's side quarter panel collapsed. Why is the bumper so weak? I thought American cars had to sustain a 3mph impact with no damage? I bent the bumper back by hand, what a phony piece of tin! My 1987 Nissan 1 ton pickup bumped into things several times with no damage to the bed. I think there should be another class action lawsuit against Toyota for not putting a sticker on the bumper "Warning! Impact of this bumper over 1mph will cause $2500 dollars in damage" " "Use extreme caution when backing up" The accident pushed the gas cap off and now my check engine light is on.
Question: is there a normally strong aftermarket chrome bumper available to use after the quarter panel is fixed?
