Repainted in some sections???

Repainted in some sections generally means, *collision*.

For a car that only needs brakes and windshield to certify, I'd highly doubt that's worth $5000. In fact, it's not. $500 for the windshield, and new rotors / pads all around would be $1000 absolutely TOPS.

So what's the extra $3400 for? Something smells awfully fishy about this deal....

Nope, I'm willing to bet that a quick test with the ole magnet reveals some serious amounts of bondo on that car. If just one section has been painted, that usually points to a collision.

And based on the horrendous certification cost, I'd be cautious about the frame and how *straight* it truly is.
