Your warranty won't cover items that are a result of abuse or accident. How will you feel to find out that this repair will cost you $250 - $750. Buying a used car is buyer-beware. You'd be better off buying a car that once belonged to a vested owner, rather than a car that is rented out to people who have no reason to give a damn about it.

This is true, never thought about that!
