    Slight fender bender on the vehicle I am considering purchase. Can I drive with this without issue? The front fender is pushed back about 2 inches on one side. Photos attached.2011 TUNDRA BUMPER1.jpg2011 TUNDRA BUMPER2.jpg

    The fender looks fine, but the bumper looks like it was pushed back.
    That should be an easy fix for a body shop... get an estimate.

    Nope doesn't look bad. You could just pull on it and try to straighten it or just get a new bumper but doesn't look like it was a hard hit.

    Why guess? Bring it to the body shop that you would have fix it. Then present the seller with the bill (estimate) and use it to negotiate a lower price.

    If I were going to purchase the truck, I would want to know. You may be thinking it is $1,000. Then you find it is $2,000. Getting an estimate is a simple thing. Even if you are not able to negotiate a lower price.

    We had that same issue on our 2007, that and the step plastic on the rear bumper was loose probably was some of the reason we got the truck for $9,000, the rest of the truck is really in what I'd say as excellent condition, engine, transmission and transfer case all work like new, 244,000 miles and no oil leaks. Interior is in amazing condition as well.
