I would tread carefully. It seems too good of a deal to be true. There isn't much mechanical info on their page. . . and why is the hood open!?

If it'* that cheap it most likely has a salvage title. Bent up hood doesn't help it'* cause.

Water damage too? Have a mechanic check it out for sure!

A good rule to remember in all aspects of life is: If something seems too good to be true it probably is. In this case I feel like you need to pass on it. Something isn't right.
