This is common on a lot of cars that sit low in the front. These vehicles tend to not be high enough when going into a parking spot with some parking stops. These parking stops catch on the under carriage plastic panels and front plastic bumpers when trying to back out of the spot. My recommendation is try and not to pull too far forward into parking spots to prevent this problem. I recommend you a certified mechanic check your vehicle out for you and see if they can reattach the panels for you.
