I am a body tech and have been for ten plus years. And I have never seen a bumper come undone from the fenders for no reason. Usually it's from parking curbs or speed bumps. But don't forget that all your bumper is plastic and it just clips on to a plastic retainer behind the bumper on the fender. Really cheap but works good unless damaged. I would check by looking under the car at the bottom of the bumper. Also if this car had damage before you bought it. And they could have put aftermarket parts such as bumper, fender, or bumper brackets. It would also not stay popped in good..
