2007 Jeep Commander. Paint bubbling/chipping on Front and Rear Bumper

Hello all,

This weekend, I purchased a 2007 Black Jeep Commander. Let me tell you, the car is awesome!!

The only issue is that the paint is bubbling/chipping on the front and rear bumpers. The paint is exposing the plastic part of the bumpers.

What suggestions do y'all have?


Thanks!

I just had my front bumper scratches repaired and repainted for about $300 here in TN. Possibly your Commander has had the bumpers repainted in the past? My 06 is not showing any bubbling/chipping on the bumpers. I do have a couple bubbles on the fender flairs though. Talk to the dealer you purchased from, possibly get a deal on repainting them.

Welcome to the site, lots of good info here. First Spring day we have had in Central Florida so I waxed my 06 XK. No bubbling of the paint anywhere, my front end was repainted in early 06. Other than sun I don't have problems from the elements here. Is it exposed to road salt and harsh winters? What color is it. Red vehicles seem to take a real beating from the Fl.weather.

Red as a color absorbs more harmful light energy from the sun than other colors (arguably black absorbs more cause it gets hotter, but red absorbs more of the harmful short wavelength rays, i.e. blue/uv, while I "think" black absorbs more of the long wavelengths while reflecting more of the short or blue). So regardless of the quality of the paint and protection, red takes more of a beating from the sun than other colors.

I minor accident in another car and replaced my bumper fascia myself, the new one came primed. Before installing it, I brought it to a body shop and asked them to paint it by the color code of the vehicle, they charged me only $110. Of course, the bumper NOT being on the vehicle when it was painted, and just asking for a inexpensive paint job, the paint did NOT match perfect, but it was hard to tell a difference. That was 12 years ago, so inflation. But discuss it with the body shop, as much prep work you can do yourself, the less it will cost you to have it repainted. The cheapest obviously will be if they can just lay the bumper over a stand and start srpaying.
