Default How much time/cost involved in bumper repair?

I have a Honda Pilot, which has the flimsiest, most fragile bumper ever; I backed into our neighbor's alley retaining wall at a pretty low speed, yet one corner of my bumper is caved in. I just need to get it "sucked out." (for lack of a better term) is this something a reputable auto body shop can do easily/quickly if I just show up and pay cash? How much cash?

well it'd be better to buy a new brand of bumper, a more sturdy one. that way, if you do it again it might not happen. However, you may have been traveling faster than you think , because really a bumper shouldn't do that. i completely forgot the price in my first answer. well it'd vary depending on what you did, but if insurance would help cover the cost, it might not be much.

hi. i have worked at honda and i own a honda accord. and i have had the same thing happen to me aswell. my aunt did that to my bumper. a honda bumper for the accords runs at approximatley $800.00-$1,300.00. the guy who mentioned $300.00 is way off. anyways if you dont want that option i had mines sucked out for about a $100.00 and it cant be seen by the untrained eye. and whatever choice you make keep in mind estimates are free and please please AVOID the dudes that will run up to you to do it and trust me on that. i am in the los angeles area so body repair costs are spoken from a california perspective. you can call honda parts to find out how much for a pilot bumper or you could go the way i said. keep in mind prices tend to change. if you need any further help please do not hesitate to email me as im ready and willing to listen. best of luck in this endevour and hoping your bad times go past you as smoothly as possible. keep in mind that suv's are pricier than cars so it could be slightly higher.

I just got my Pilots bumper slamed into by some moron, it just shattered. I went to car star and got a new bumper painted and installed, it looks perfect, it also only cost $800.

$300 is for the bumper it self maybe. OEM replacement will cost you from $200-300. time and prep and paiting? you are looking at another $300-400. depending on where you go. so total your looking at $700ish. It hurts, but I have to do the same thing.

Accord 98, 300 for a new bumper with install and paint job. No idea if it was self made or not but it looks perfect.

Hi
Why should I avoid the mechanics that do body work and offer to come repair the car on the spot? Do you think the people from the lease will notice it when they do the inspection and charge me for a new bumper?
Let me know
Thanks
