Less than a month old and the bumper needs to be replaced.

Anyone else experience this

This past week I had a car back into the front bumper and the dam thing completely spider cracked from one side to the other at less than 10 kph at -9 C

1100 for replacement parts and labor.

I asked the insurance company about the amount of damage at such a low speed and they said here in Canada the Forte bumpers are not very flexible in the cold and they have replaced many bumpers on the fortes. Local body shop said this the 4th bumper in a month that he knows of that did the same thing. Forte bumpers are not pliable in the cold.

Stunned as I had many hard licks with the Subaru Imperza and Honda Civic and no damage with the cold weather.
