Okay the vehicle I am looking to buy is a 2012 WRX. He's selling it for $15,500 with 17k miles on it. It is, however a salvage title.
I just want your opinions if you think that it is worth it. I spoke to the seller and he said it had frontal damage with the headlight, bumper, and fenders being replaced. He also says the frame was straight and there was no engine damage upon the impact.
Now here is where I'm a little nervous. I asked him for pictures and he "FORGOT" to save them on his computer when the accident happened. He also said that he has no service records available of the collision because everything was done in a friends body shop where he got a discounted price from his buddy. The car was never modified at all and is completely stock?
I know that salvage titles are a great risk when buying, but if what he said about the accident is true then I believe that this could be a great bargain deal. If he only had proof of service records and previous pictures, I wouldn't be that hesitant to buy it
Anyways thank you guys for any help in advance! I currently drive a 2012 Mitsu Ralliart so I guess I'm switching over from the dark side if this seems like a great deal
