 Can someone tell me if you can find out what the damage was and who repaired it?

Walk away. Hard to resell. Insurance companies don't like them.

Yeah, unless it was my vehicle that the insurance sold back to me after a crash, I would steer clear.  One of our neighbors does this, buys them from the insurance company, pounds on them in his driveway for a while, hits the junkyard for parts, puts a new coat of paint on them and then sells them for not too much less than a clean title.

That's if you're lucky, just imagine the fun of owning a hurricane vehicle.  They ship them well out of the area so people aren't thinking about the possibility the car was under sewage tainted salt water for a time.

depends who rebuilt it. My dad has rebuilt several rigs over the years. But he's had a successful collision repair facility in Walla Walla for 40 years. I drove an '02 Grand Prix he found for me and rebuilt for many years. good car.  It had taken a small airborne trip into a wheat field and through a barbed wire fence. straightened it up and a few new parts and i had a nice car for a lot less than a non-rebuilt. traded it in on the pickup i have now. dealer never batted an eye at the rebuilt factor, but i know used car dealers don't often lose money on a deal...  :chuckle:

Another thing, If you don't know who fixed it, or what the damage was, it could be a safety issue. Think about structural damage that wasn't repaired correctly. You could end up in a somewhat minor collision and it folds up like a pop can.
