  • Thank you very much! Is that good to buy a car that was rental?
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 45,989
    I'd say it's a "neutral" quality. The car has to speak for itself, regardless of where it came from, so always best to have it checked out by someone. And of course research car values so you don't pay too much.

    Thanks shiftright. Must be some more recent activity on this truck. Checked w/ my insurance co. for a quote, and they were saying it had two damage claims filed in '09 and It now has 89,000 miles. They couldn't tell what the damages were because they don't look up carfax reports. The truck was just repainted so it kind of has my curiosity up.

    Hmmm...the carfax doesn't show anything and the mileage could be 86K because the last mileage recorded was back in 2007.

    Well lots of accidents are missed by Carfax so you'd best have the car thoroughly checked out then. Carfax doesn't usually tell you what the damage was (once in a while they do) but the insurance company certainly knows the dollar amounts of the claims. If it's a large $$$ amount, you know it's serious, but if the claims are a few thousand bucks, that's nothing these days.

    I can't imagine why the ENTIRE truck was repainted, though. Are you sure it wasn't just some panels.

    A good body shop could give you plenty of info on what was done, by having them look it over.

    But really, on a 2005 vehicle that has already depreciated substantially, i wouldn't get too hung up on things like common fender-benders.

    Yea, i asked seller about the paint cause i saw a piece of masking tape on the headlight w/ paint on it and he said he painted whole truck because of some scratches. But yea ur right about not worrying too much about minor repairs.
    Thanks alot for your help sir.
  • could you please check the history of this car? 1b3el46r75n549653

    I need to replace the bumper and deal with a dent of a fists area, and the dent has no painting, too. How much should I pay?

    Let's see 3 owner car, about 107K miles, need bumper and dent repair--sounds like about $2000 is a fair price. You should be able to buy clean ones for $3500, so....

  • The car looks pretty new except for the dent and the bumper. How much should I pay for the bumper and the painting, as well as the dent repair? I mean the supposed price. Thank you!
  • In Kelly Blue Book the price for the fair condition of this car is 4000, oh my god! I don't know why it's so expensive.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 45,989
    Oh that's Kelley. those are dealer asking prices for very clean cars, which yours isn't, so...deduct accordingly.

    Can't say what repairs will cost. I'd have to see photos of the damage, and also price out a used bumper (which may need painting as well). For all this hassle, this car better be cheap.

  • Thank you very much! Where can I find a used bumper? Best wishes!

  • Hello,

    Please help with VIN check on : YV1LW5101T2241527

    Much Appreciated
  • I'm trying to find the owner of this vehicle: VB56KO678987 You will notice that it is not a 17-digit VIN; it is a '56 Chevy (before the standardized formatting). My dad had restored this car and sold it in Escondido, CA many years ago; he would like to try to buy it back, but cannot find the owner. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    P.M.
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 45,989
    No way to trace it by normal public computer records--it's too old, unless you know someone in law enforcement that could check to see if it has a current registration in California. You can't do this for privacy reasons.

    Other than that, you could put an ad in Hemmings Motor News with the VIN (many people do this), since the car might be out of state already.

    Yea..well whats going on? No one is willing to help here?

    I wouldn't recommend it to anyone .. F for fail ...
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 45,989
    voisard---sorry you're in a jam here but CARFAX costs someone money when they answer you. CARFAX isn't free, so you have to look at it as someone's generosity. Maybe people with subscriptions just aren't online right now.

    Try over in our ANSWERS department (see link below)...sometimes people there will answer you more quickly.
