Cracked bumper. ☹️
Six years of no incidents and one month before my 2013 Crosstrek is paid off I hit some ice going slow on an uphill dirt road. Into a ditch I went. I heard a sharp "bam!" as my right side dropped but I was able to pull out of it quickly. Everything looked (and worked) fine until I noticed the right side of my front bumper had a crack directly underneath and on the rounding of the black molding. Body shop quoted me $500 for parts and labor (new aftermarket bumper, paint, and labor).
Thoughts, sympathies, finger waving, or cheaper solutions?
Anything I should make sure to check under the hood? Car is driving fine without any pull to one side or strange sounds/vibrations.
