    2016 CX5 rear bumper

    I have a 2016 black GT CX5, in less then 6 months I have had 2 people hit my back bumper causing minor (but expensive) damage. I just replaced the bumper and less than 2 weeks later, someone hit me in a parking lot and left. Iím so mad-it was just replaced! Iíve come to realize that the rubber part of the bumper is a POS, and worthless. Iím sick of replacing the entire back bumper-how can I protect it from further damage? Iíve seen some bumper guards, but they are more for off road and very big and flashy. Ive seen some skid plates, but I donít know if It will be enough protection. It looks very low and doesnít appear to protect the top of the bumper. Any suggestions?

    Wide hitch step, perhaps a folding one? Needs a hitch though...

    Thanks, I saw those, but it looks like it only protects the center of the bumper. Both times I was hit off to the side. Never saw folding ones, not sure how it works.

    How about rear protection tow bar, something like this:

    I saw those, but I think they are more for off road?? I was looking for something less flashy and more discreet. I really didnít want something that sticks out that much. Thank you.

    That one is for a van - there are more serious off road versions.

    Here's the full image:



    Have a look around the web - there are much more discrete tow bar attachments that should do the job
