Rebuilt title. 82k miles on it. Internet purchase from across the country. I mean getting a mechanical inspection of it. Looks wise it seems amazing but it’s easy for vehicles to look good and be crap. Front end was whacked pretty hard - the used dealer sent me the pictures of the vehicle as they purchased it from auction. I got a Carfax and it didn’t look like airbags went off (would they be replaced before salvage auction? I’d assume no).

I am getting an independent mechanic inspection on it today before purchase, but how bad of an idea is this?

It is - care to PM me what you have heard? I would assume it’s less dubious from a dealer than a private sale though.

What will a mechanic and inspection miss that would make the purchase dubious? Just trying to see if it can be resolved or it’s really a dont-touch type situation.

Thank you all for your insights and time replying
