Plus, when it does come time to sell the car you will have a MUCH easier time selling one with a clean history. I have owned many cars in my time and can say that more often than not cars with accidents in their history always have problems. Weird electrical gremlins, vibrations, rattles, mismatched panels, problems with leaks or water not draining from the body, etc. JUST AVOID. Any used car should be inspected prior to purchase but buying anything with a known accident history is just like rolling the dice when the dice are already loaded against you.
