Mad How much for a new rear bumper skin?

Went to Tampa airport to pick up my mom. The flight was one hour late and when we got back to the car some S.O.B. had scraped against the driver side rear quarter panel and bumper skin. I think I may be able to buff out the quarter panel but the bumper skin is pretty bad (2 holes in it). Its a 2004 6cyl fwd NOT a redline. I think they heard my yelling all the way in the terminal. Mom was quite shocked at my vocabulary . Oh well.... I guess it had to happen sooner or later.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

~$276 from Saturn; or at least that's what it cost me a year and a half ago.

I actually had the body shop do it, as the guy who hit me was reimbursing me for it all (still the $ number I gave you is just for the part, not labor)

I believe others on these forums have done DIY vue bumper skin replacement. You might be able to search for some older threads on the subject for some tips.

Ouch! Sorry to hear about your unfortunate luck... I would have been quite pissed as well. It's a shame that some people don't take responsibility for their actions. Anyway, the current MSRP for the rear fascia is $282.30 &, although I've never replaced one myself, it doesn't seem like a bad DIY project. Also, ask your retailer if they'll give you credit for the old cover since they can return it to Saturn to be recycled.

Does your insurance cover hit and run? I know mine does (it's included in uninsured/underinsured motorist), but with a $250 deductible. Still, at least that would be better than nothing! I'd guess installation will be around $100 if you have Saturn do it. So at least if you've got a $250 deductible, it'd cover part of the bumper cover and all of the installation.

You'd have to call to find out what shipping would cost...
