not worth it. i got my 2006 accord ex-l with navi for $8000 OUT THE DOOR. it had been in an accident, but still had a clean title which makes a big difference.
i did have some minor problems with the car, but then again, the car was only $8k.

A "totaled" vehicle just means that the repairs exceed a set amount the insurance company wants to pay to fix it. On an older car, this can mean very little actual damage has been sustained. Body shops fix wrecked cars all day long. A totaled vehicle can be repaired just as well as any other vehicle if it's done right.
PROBLEM IS... most "rebuilders" fix totals using the cheapest parts and cheesy shortcuts that end up making the car a POS.

Too high price don't buy.

|nohopes||Never Never buy a car in accident, read my struggle with one such car and thanks for all those in this community who chipped in to help me get it right. But I got rid of that car and brought a used gem like Accord and been very happy with my purchase.|

|hillstones||The side impact to the engine compartment is significant on the driver side. The engine compartment has been compromised. That is why the car was totaled. WALK AWAY from that vehicle. He probably had it repaired for CHEAP so it it can pass an inspection for a salvage title, and now he is trying to get top dollar for a rebuilt wreck. You would be a fool if you bought that car.|

1. that price is crazy even with new tires.
2. the resale value after fixing is only around the asking price.
3. somewhere under that wreck is frame damage..
You are looking at about 1500 for a new front end, 300 on a fender, 500 on paint, 50 new headlights, 40 new headlight bracket, ??? frame damage, 100 alignment, ??? anything pertaining to the alignment, and other misc. stuff and labor (DIY or shop).
if it was a clean title and asking somewhere for $8k, I may consider.. but this condition, title, and price, I would walk away..just my opinion.

|mobiless2||If you get into a wreck later, the insurance is only going to want to pay you 55% of market value. Went thru this with my Insurance on my old GS-R. Will never buy a salvage title again.|

|GolftangoV2||Wow. If I didn't like my Accord so much, I would unload it for a nice profit.|
