My Passat was rear ended last night with minor damage. Bad weather, traffic and inpatient drivers, what are you going to do? There's no dents, just scraps and some small gouges on the rear bumper, the part that's painted the color of the car, not the dull black underneath. The car is a black 2002 Variant btw. It's bad enough where I don't think it can be buffed out because of the gouges. If the car was a few years old I probably wouldn't bother with it, but it's just too damn new not to get it fixed. Does it have to be replaced or can it be fixed? I'm not sure because it's on the plastic. I plan on stopping by the dealer this weekend to have it looked at, but I was wondering if anyone has had a similar issue and what was done. Thanks.
