I purchased a 2011 Hyundai Sonata less than 2 weeks ago. I was horrified to see that 2 holes were drilled in my front bumper for a license plate. I do not now and have never had a license plate on the front of my car. The dealership where I purchased the car says this is standard procedure for them to do and they will not resolve the problem. I was not given this option and I feel like they have damaged my car. I do not know who to contact about this problem. Could you please tell me who to con

I have had my 2002 Deville at several service garages and no one can solve the shaking/vibration problem the car has. The car starts shaking at 50 + mile per hour and above. I have 20 inch devanti rims which I had the lug holes professionally drills to the vehicle specs. I have new tires, rotors, brakes, front hub bearings, wheel balancing, and the rims checked to ensure none are bent. I have been told that there is no problem with any of the suspension parts, and that there is nothing wrong

My hood won't close properly. Read below...... I had a really bad day and tried to take a dirt road for a shortcut. My car bottomed out kinda hard and now my Hood is raised 1 inch from the bumper. It still latches. It also blew out my front shocks. I've been riding like this for over a year now... I was told by a mechanic that I may need to get my frame adjusted. is there any other way? I hear it's quite expensive.. just an eyesore...

I rear ended someone in my 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT last night, and the hitch on the back of his truck punched a hole right through my bumper. My car is now overheating, and bleeding coolant profusely. I have a feeling that the radiator has been destroyed. Just wondering what parts are in that front end area, and how difficult it will be to fix. I'm not concerned with cosmetic damage, I just need to get to work. The engine wasn't damaged at all.

Sure. Use bondo. Do you have a paint sprayer?\015\012\015\012Most composite bumpers have the paint in the composite, but I dont' know why, at least for a coupe or three years, the bumper wouldn't hold paint sprayed on. ... Hyundai Motor 2004 Sonata

Front Bumper About six months ago, I had to have my front bumper replaced, thanks to a teenage driver who didn't "know I was backing up" and hit my car. Since then, whenever I park in a spot that may have a raised sidewalk or concrete barrier, my front end will scrape and pull on my bumper. Today, I didn't even realize I had parked over a concrete barrier and upon backing up, my front bumper came apart on both sides. I couldn't get on the interstate because of the flapping of the cheap bumper, s

I have a 1999 Chevy Lumina car. I had to replace my front bumper and I found this big black plastic ball like with a vacuum line attached to it.

How much to replace the front bumper on a 2009 Honda Odyssey. There was a minor bump - You can not even see any indentation just the slight crack in the lower bumper. This bump caused the lower bumper to separate slightly from the car. The auto repair gentleman was great and popped the bumper back into the upper frame. But I was told that any bump - could cause the lower bumper to crack more. So would like a quote on the cost of a front bumper replacement.

The bumper on my car looks like it was hit by someones tire as they were turning and backing up leaving several patches of rubber on the bumper and popping the first 3-4 rivet holes. I have obtained some professional grade solution that is supposed to be able to take off the rubber. However, is there anyway to fix the rivet holes to be "as good as new" without actually purchasing a new bumper and the localized paint job that goes with it?

Daughter has a 94 Acura Integra RS. She hit the back end of a POS and dented the guy's bumper (not that you could really tell any difference from before), but she smushed in her right front bumper area of her car. It pierced the condensor (we ended up removing it - doesn't need ac right now anyway). From what I can see, if we simply pull out the right front bumper area a little, the end of the quarter panel would go back into place and it would be smooth again (it's sticking up over the end o

Replacement bumper Ordered a replacement bumper for my 99 Ford F450 truck. The new one is chrome. My problem is that the new one has holes accross the front and my old one didn't. Trying to find out if the holes are for some kind of bumper guard, plastic perhaps?? Not sure if what they sent if for my model. Can you shed any light on this subject?


They gave you the wrong bumper. The holes are for a plastic rub strip if they are straight across the bumper. If vertical, they are for a bumpe guard. ... 1999 Ford Super Duty F 450

Inner edge of both front tires is almost worn out in 5000 miles. car has 220000 miles but none of the front bushings seem to be worn out. I measured .25 inch tow out per side. car is 92 honda civic VX.


If you have too much negative camber (inward tilt of the tops of the wheels), that will cause the inner edge to wear prematurely. Good luck! ... 1992 Honda Civic

My front, passenger tire is wearing down on the inner part of the tire. About an inch to an inch and a half in it is becoming metal, while the ret of the tire looks as though it is not even wearing down or is wearing down extremely slowly. Along with this there is a **** to the car. When you press down on the gas pedal the car pulls to the right and when you let off the pedal it pulls to the left. It doesn't always pull, just when you initially press down or let up, it is a very sharp ****.

My car is a 2001 dodge grand caravan/3.3L v6. the A/C, according to two mechanics who checked it, has good freon pressure. But the A/C clutch doesnt kick in when I turn it on every time. I thought it may be the a/c fan relay (pop riveted to the front bumper behind the grill covering, since they told me that has been the typical culprit for the a/c in the 2001 dodge 3.3L engines.
