I am considering buying a 1995 MX3 which is classified in British Columbia as a rebuilt

Asked by Jan 16, 2012 at 07:38 PM about the 1995 Mazda MX-3 2 Dr STD Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In BC the govertnment requires all rebuilts to be certified before being sold, so
I think it is ok, the accident which caused the salvage was on the drivers left side,
on the panel just in front of the door.

My concern is whether the frame was affected. The photos show it and it
doesnt appear too much dented in, but enough for a write off.

Any suggestions on  likelyhood this would be structurally bad.

Iknow, i know, tough to say. But I am wondering if anyone else purchased a vehicle under similar circumstances. The car driver very nicely and has plenty
of Zip. 193,000 kms ( about 114000 miles)

thanks for any thoughts. (just not too rude!! please)

any rebuilt vehicle with a salvage title has to be inspected by the DMV inspector,you have to set up a appoiment for him to look at vehicle,takes about 10 minutes and $100.00 here in the US.he sighnes a paper saying it was repaired right,gives you a coppy,then you can regester it.no matter how minnor the damage,if a air bag is deployed the insurance co will total it.hope this helps.
