I recently began looking for a used car and came across a Ford Fusion (rental vehicle) for sale. The car seemed to run okay, and tracked straight and true. I got it inspected by an independent mechanic and he found several problems. The motor mounts need replacing and it needs new rear brakes. However, it is the body damage (not structural) he found that has me most concerned.
The left rear tail light has gaps around it. The rear bumper is wavy along the top. The trunk on the left side is not flush and could allow water into the trunk. The dealer said he would fix the problems, but I am mighty concerned if these body problems can truly be fixed. What do you think?
