    Mostly ranting but my 09 touring spoiler was literally ripped off so hard it pulled the 4 bolts with it.. is this a new trend? if so im not spending the stupid amount wanted for a new one.. I find regular dark grey titanium color (whatever its called) for 65-95 bucks on eBay.. im just glad they left my 5 month old catalytic converter alone..

    That stinks! Grrrr!!!
    I’ve never heard of it happening. Try a wrecking yard for a replacement.

    progressive said it was the 2nd one this month in Florida.. I guess im lucky, but not lucky enough to find a wrecking yard that doesn't whore eBay prices and want 300 for a used black regular spoiler..

    I have a brand new one from a 3rd gen, any way to make that work?

    They want to total it out so they can keep the car, pay you a pittance and sell it to a scrapper for break even or even a profit.
    They hope you just roll over and fall for it. Fight these crooks.

    unfortunately the whole rear door needs replaced, hence the stupid high price.. but I know how to weld and use a hammer to fix the Huge holes left by the bolts.. I just ordered a spray painted black one on eBay with light for 65 bucks shipped.. so im STOKED! just gotta fire up the paint booth and dehumidifier..

    Once left my '08 prius in a public parking garage overnight in San Jose, some a hole literally ripped my windshield wipers off my car. They bent the arms back, luckily I was able to bend them back. They even left the part of the wiper that attaches to the wiper arms, meaning they didn't even get a set of working wipers.

    Sucks that they ripped out the whole dang spoiler. People can be wack.
