should I ?
Tuesday, March 08, 2005 12:37 PM
There is a wrecked cavi in my area for $3000 it is an 04. I think it is a base model because it has only a cassete player. It is a 5 speed and looks like an easy fix. Do you think it would be worth it or not. I will try and get some pics of it also.

Depends on whats all messed up on it.....It can't be wrecked beyond repair, or it wouldnt be 3000 bucks. I'd def look into it. Most likely there isnt a ton of miles on it either.

Take it!! Aftermarket parts can replace everything damaged on there!

That car is worth closer to 9000 without the damage. And you could definetly repair it for cheap. TAKE IT!

I would make sure there is no frame damage, then jump on it.

Yeah make sure there's no frame. That doesn't look good with the fender on the opposite side of the impact messed up.

it was suposedly (sp?) hit on the front and side, so i am guessing that is how the driver fender got messed up also.

Judging by the body damage, and the front crushguard support, it looks like the frame may be good. I'd take it, that's an easy fix most likely.

Frame damage can be fixed and almost replair to its original condition. Are the airbags deployed. Does it have a salvage title? I would not pay more then 1500 for it if its got a salvage title. But its your money and you can do whatever you want with it. Good luck.

yes the bags are deployed....but i don't care about tha because i wanted an aftermarket steering wheel anyways....and about the salvage title i don't know.....does it hurt it THAT much if it has a salvage title??

oh yes the price gets cut like 2/3rd's

a salvage title drops the price that much??....is there any type of blue book that will give salvage title prices. If this does have a salvage title would it still be worth it???

plain and simple without gettin into all that crap......if you get someone who knows what there talking about to look at it and tell you there is no frame damage, GET IT.....with replacing all that stuff with aftermarket stuff, and then getting the car repainted i bet you will only have 6 grand into the car

it would be well worht it

my buddy has his own body shop so i should be able to get work done pretty cheap. The car does need a radiator and a radiator support, but that is all other than body panels.

If the airbags deployed, why is there no windshield damage?

Re: should I ?

So im guessing it has a slavage title then. Do not pay more then 1500 max. I sure as hell wouldn't. Its not worth it. There are so many better deals out there.




Re: should I ?

where can u find a car that doesn't have that much damage for 1500 at ??????
