I got the impression from reading the rest of the thread that the issue seems to be that the bumper breaks too easily from impacts that shouldn't have resulted in cracking.
In my case, I _know_ I hit something big(ish) going fast, so I wasn't majorly surprised at the damage, just a little disappointed. Certainly different from minor bang-ups from steel cars, though.
Although, now that I think about it, the accident that totaled my Corolla... the bumper bounced right back. No cracks, just a few dents. I think. Hrmph. I'll definitely take a cracked bumper and intact structural bits, though. My Corolla looked fine, even though it was leaking fluids when I drove it home from the accident.
