Question Previous Owner going back to the Stang

Well in my younger days I owned a 1984 Mustang coupe Turbo 5 Spd. I loved that car.

Well now several years, a wife and two kids later it's time to buy me a new one.

I need some professional advice from the gents here on whether I should buy this stang.

I am looking at a 2003 convertible with Auto, it has 24,000 KM and the asking price is $16,000 canadian. The reason the price is so low (others sell for 23k) is because it has been in a collision. The guy selling it says it has been in a front end crash that was strong enough to deploy the airbags.

My questions are:

Is the price worht it?
Should I look into this unit or should I just stay away from it?
Should I bother getting it inspected?

any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

I would definitely say look around. That vehicle would be the end of the line for me. I would look for like half a year before I'd buy that one. And by then, if it's still there, there's more wrong with it than you should even worry about.

There's a great chance that it has a bent frame or may not have been repaired 100% correctly. You could end up in a situation where you have to replace one or more tires every 6 months. and that's no good.

Yep, www.autotrader.com is your friend. Also check out some of the forums. I'd suggest getting something that is a couple of years old just to avoid the depreciation that is nasty in the first couple years. That's just my opinion though.
