Can you tell that they have been hit? Is there damage or scuff marks? The dealer can't just say the bumpers got hit. Some dealers will say anything to get out of warranty claims. If you're sure your bumpers weren't hit then go over the dealer's head and talk to a DC rep. My GT got hit in the rear taking some paint off of my bumper. The only way I know some idiot backed in to me and took off paint was the little dent in my license plate. Of course the idiot never left a note. That's ok. What goes around comes around. The idiot will get theirs in the end and hopefully it will be twofold.

Pops:
A friend of mine had the same problem with his Dodge Dakota. The paint started peeling off his front bumper and the stealer insisted he had spilled something on it. He never did get any satisfaction. Same B.S. They just don't want to pay for it. Go git 'em and make 'em pay!

2002 PTs did not have painted bumpers except for the dream cruiser - gold. If yours isn't gold, then you had them painted somewhere else, and I can't see that being warranteed.

If they were painted as a mod then it is possible tha bumpers were not prepped correctly (sanded smooth)or maybe the painter never used a flex primer which is supposed to make the paint adhere better. I am no expert but I think this could cause peeling at some point. You could maybe find out from the previous owner where he had them done.

Pops,
Welcome to the forum. I have an 02 myself, and as others have said the covers could have been painted aftermarket. I had the gray and because of tape marks was able to get replacement covers. I was also lucky enough to talk the dealer into the smooth covers and then paid them to paint them for me. If you are going to have to pay to get them painted, try the dealer. They painted mine for $225
Good luck.[8]

Agreed. If you didnt paint them, someone else did.
