Wanting to buy this Acura rsx.. need opinions

Hey everyone, so i am looking into this Acura rsx type S 2005 that i am wanting to buy. Here is some info about it:
- has 74xxx km on it
- pearl white
- been in accident before worth 2 grand, rear bumper, fender and tail lights were replaced.

One of my buddies said that it is going to have alignment problems because of the accident but when i test drove it, it was fine?
What i am confused about it that it was stated as a rebuilt.. but icbc cant write off an accident thats only 2 grand?

It is listed for $9800

How do you know the accident was $2k?

Maybe icbc deemed it a write off, then seller bought it back and fixed it himself for $2k instead?

Maybe there was another accident. Do an icbc search for $15 or w.e

If it's actually a rebuilt, there is a 0 chance that it was a $2000 accident to repair. It could be a photo of only part of the damage, it could be a totally different accident, there are so many scenarios that could be. You should not be buying a rebuilt unless you or somebody you trust well knows can really identify what has been replaced and repaired.

If it's rebuilt $9800 is still too much, imo.

Don't be enticed by low mileage.

The accident history is seriously conflicting. Either get an ICBC report or get a mechanic friend to inspect. Get it on a lift.
