You should be cautious of purchasing a vehicle with a rebuilt title or has been in a major accident. The vehicle typically never gets back to 100% of what it was before the accident and the value for you will be affected when you decide to trade the vehicle in a few years. If you are decided on this vehicle since the price is very low then have a mechanic do a thorough pre-purchase inspection. Having the car checked by a professional before following through with a big purchase is a worthwhile investment so that you know of any lingering issues with the car before handing over your money.
