There was potential damage to the vehicle; only reason I say this is that whomever put the rear bumper back on didn't put it on right. No listed damage in Carfax;...

Found the TSB if you're interested in pursuing it with a dealer under a warranty - which would be the extended for most now. Looks like 2007-2009 could be affected; Exhaust cams and VVTI.
