Default Cars that were in front end accidents

What's your opinion on cars that were in front end accidents?
Recently saw a few cars that were in accidents, no air bag deployment but enough to have to replace hoods and bumpers.
BTW - still talking to the guy about the 01, he's trying to decide if he wants to sell for $3500

my car was in a minor front end accident before i bought it. Works just fine... slightly bent bumper beam, but whatever.


If there was no frame damage, then the car is fine.

My car was totalled from the front end. Still drives fine after the rebuild.

Just see if there is frame damage, if there is none then it can be a pretty simple fix and restore.

Sounds like a easy fix, but the price is a bit high for a 01 civic.

I wrecked the front of my car and bent the frame. Insurance fixed it and it drives great. $6,700 worth of damage.

All cars down this way with about same milage are going for $5000 and up. At $3,500, this is a clean car (except for front end damage that was repaired by shop), one owner, and all maintenance records - the price doesn't seem high to me.
