    [​IMG] [​IMG] Heya fellow Prius owners!

    New member and first time poster!

    Just purchased a Certified 2015 White Prius 4 @ 20,090 Miles on it. Right off the bat noticed the REAR BUMPER WHEEL WALL SIDE SEAL CLIP was not clipping. Tried pushing back in but it's not clipping, just popping off. Took it back to the dealer TWICE, just got it back today, and same thing on both sides! PLEASE HELP WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? Is it the bumper? The side seal clip? Anything will help! THANK YOU!!!

    Ours is similar. Passenger side, not too bad:

    Drivers side, worse:

    Had a serious impact on drivers side a few years back, and a parking lot brush a week or two back. It's going in for "bumper" touch up tomorrow.

    Take back to dealer for them to get it str/aight. It's certified and paid higher for it so they need to find a permanent solution / fix for it, especially if it was a recent purchase.

    They might eff it up in the process. I'm pretty sure ours were slightly off from the get go, and if it's the norm, what can they do? It looks to me like something that looked good on the drawing boards, not so good in practice.

    Maybe more 3rd gen owners can chime in, on how theirs look?

    This is purely cosmetic.
