I am looking to buy this vehicle and stated on auto check everything checks out except the vehicle was in 1 accident. The dealer stated that to me. It was the front bumper that was replaced. Should that be an area of concern? I am taking it to a 3rd party mechanic to check vehicle. Also I noted that car had a heavy gas smell?
what could it be? And do you think it is worth buy for $7200
Do you
have the same problem?

If only the bumper was damaged, you should be fine. However, you should have it checked by your personal mechanic. As far as the fuel smell, it could be a leak, so mention that to your mechanic.

As far as the price, I can't tell you what it is worth without being there. This type of vehicle can be a high maintenance vehicle and repairs can be expensive.

Always remember the old saying, "Buyer Beware."
