Have Subaru Questions? Ask a Subaru Mechanic and Get Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. If there was front end damage, First, I would be looking for horn, airbag sensor, or headlight/turn signal electrical damage. The bumper section can be relatively easy to take care of. The main issue would be the kink in the frame. If this kink is causing the engine not to sit properly, it could be very bad in relation to drive axles, transmission and the mounts being always twisted. If the kink is not effecting the natural position of the motor or the driveability of the vehicle then I would say go for it. Just be sure that these things are checked.
Okay. Sounds like you have a good deal going. Like a said, the bumper section is very easy to fix. I've stated all my concerns. Everything else would be routine work for front end damage. As long as the motor and transmission are sound, I would say you will be fine.
I've purchased a rebuilt car myself and I had NO problems at all with it.
