The protection your bumpers offer your car
Your car bumpers purpose is to prevent damage from occurring to the rest of your car. It is much more inexpensive to fix or replace a bumper than it is to fix or replace other parts of your car. Fixing or replacing a car bumper will only run you a couple of hundred of dollars.
However, if you need to fix or replace other parts of your car, it could cost thousands of dollars. Plus, damage to your bumpers does not affect your car’s ability to run, whereas damage to other parts such as those in the engine could, in fact, affect your car’s ability to run properly.
