just because there is no accident on the carfax, does not necessarily mean there was no unreported accident.

my personal experience makes me uneasy, but body work always makes me wonder about the frame, and that is often something an untrained eye may easily miss.

good luck, hope it works out for you.

I had my body guy inspect the car today all is good and I put a deposit on it Going back with some friends to pick it up....Yea Baby
