Owning a vehicle gives you the freedom to go anywhere you want, and this freedom causes you to have strong feelings towards your vehicle. These strong feelings make you protect it as much as possible, because the annoyance you feel when you find a new scratch can be serious. Knowing this, CARiD offers you a number of accessories to help you protect your vehicle from common problems, and one of these accessories is a bumper guard.

Your bumper bar is at risk of damage because it is something you can not see while you are driving, and this fact shows itself when you are trying to park the vehicle in a tight space. You are probably familiar with that horrible feeling of a little “bump” when you are trying to get the vehicle into a very tight space, and a bumper guard is able to prevent that bump from becoming serious damage that costs a great deal of money.

There are a number of different types of bumper guards, and each one has a different way of protecting your bumper. For instance, there are those that are glued on to the bumper, which means you can stick them on and then forget about them until you need them. There are also those bumper guards that are trunk-mounted, which means they sit in your trunk as a floor mat and stick through the lid of the trunk, so they can hang down over your bumper. Each one has its strengths, and one of them will be the perfect option for you!

When you do have a bumper guard installed, you need to know what can go wrong so you can be on the lookout for those problems. With glue-on bumper guards, the guard is out in the weather all day which means the glue will eventually fail and the guard may need to be re-glued before it falls off. The trunk-mounted guards are obviously at risk of wear and tear from the trunk lid closing on them, and this wear and tear can cause the guard to fall off and be left behind.

These problems are serious, but they are usually relatively easy to notice if you are taking the time to check your bumper guard often. For instance, the wear and tear on a trunk-mounted guard is going to show itself as cracks and brittleness, so the first signs of these should result in action. Those that are glued to your bumper will often begin to peel away from one corner at a time, and this is something you can see easily just by looking at it whenever you walk past. You do not want to discover the problem after you have an accident, so maintenance is key!

Replaced the this one for the other brand which was $100 less but weak. Hoping this one can hold up better. Also it sits too closer to the Rogue bumper than the cheaper brand. Someone hits it and there goes the bumper. We'll see.
