2012 Toyota Prius C: Needs Bumper Protection
February 28, 2013
The rear bumper of our long-term 2012 Toyota Prius C caught my eye this week and not just because it was dirty from recent rains. The bumper on our car is bare.
Toyota offers a bumper protector as a $79 port-installed accessory on 2012 models like ours as well as 2013 models. Although our Prius C's bumper remains pristine after nearly 12,000 miles in service, I consider a protector a necessity on any vehicle with a hatch and if I had it my way, this feature would be standard.
I'm given to clumsiness at times when loading up cargo bays. And if I was suddenly the sole owner of our Prius C, I'd phone up the parts department and order the bumper protector straightaway. What about you?
