So first of all I would like to say that I’m new to this site. Now getting with my issue.
So yesterday I found a 2010 VW Jetta TDi with a 6 speed manual transmission and 60k miles on the odometer. Yesterday I decided to check it out and the car is in a immaculate state. The inside is good everything comes to ally has been kept extremely well. So I decided to do a Carfax and auto check report. It turns out the that vehicle had two car accidents. One occurred in mid 2011 which according to the reports were of moderate damage and none disabling, the second one kinda got me a bit on the safe zone as it happened in 2012 but the crash was disabling and required it to be towed. So about 8 years ago those two accidents happened.
I felt bummed because this car if you look at it is good! According to the seller all repairs were done by an approved VW repair shop. The vehicle had sustained damage on the right and left side of the front. So I decided to go more in depth I checked the title with an approved national data base checker and nothing came out, no salvage, no rebuilt, no total loss from insurance claims, title liens, bank liens all cleared. So I still had my doubts and went further I checked the title on my state DMV site and same thing no salvage title and it was active title.
So after all this I was curious as to why the vehicle was towed. So I checked my States accident report database, and I found the accident. The police report said that the driver had hit two vehicles in front of her at a stop light, and that the driver was under the suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol. So I don’t know if that may have been an attributing factor as to why the vehicle was towed.
So here I am with this dilema seems like the car runs good, I took it on a test drive and the vehicle had no vibration, no misalignment, no engine lights on the dashboard or any light. Should I still purchase this vehicle? What do you guys opinion?
