Pretty good price if the repairs were done by a dealer and put back together properly AND inspected. It must have been a pretty good frontal "bump" to set off the airbag.

Only question is why it went to auction right after an apparent trade in? Owner nor dealer either one wanted to keep it.

I took a look at it and could not find anything wrong with it , body panels and paint looked factory. I did not drive it though. people try to dump them after the repairs to beat out the car fax report.

I agree good price...

My 09 also was in an accident and my price wasn't quite that good. My advice is do some research on the vehicle. After some investigation, I found out that my car had been vandalized and that "airbags were never deployed". Using the VIN # I tracked down the dealership and had the chance to talk to the guy who actually worked on my car. He mentioned that that the total cost to repair the car was < $2,0000 and the work was purely cosmetic. After an independent PPI, I was prepared to make an offer the car.

I know that when I sell or trade the car in that I won't get a fair price for my car

Looks like a nice car!

Cars with a bad history can be good buys if you know exactly what you're doing and if you get the car at a dirt cheap price. Otherwise, you're just gambling.
