I would not recommend buying a frame damaged vehicle. You could experience severe tire wear, dog walking, strange noises and rattles, stress cracking in the body, I've even seen a few cars that you couldn't keep a windshield in.

I'd never buy a car with frame damage because of the problems listed by tennisshoes, but also, in some states it might not even pass inspection. I been behind vehicles with bent frames, and the you can notice them crabbing, and the driver constantly trying to keep it in the lane. I would buy a car like that for the fun to drive and look at me factor, but driving a car that's going sideways down the road tells everyone you bought it for all the wrong reasons. They'll look at you all right, but think 'what a dope.'
