Default 2008 ISF on Autotrader, 23,990$....rebuilt title.

Don't know if anyone has seen this. If I was better equipped to buy an ISF I would (stupid credit )

But it seems legit minus seeing a carfax or pictures of it before hand?


Used 2008 Lexus ISF 23,990$



Quote:
You are looking at a 2008 Lexus IS-F in excellent condition, inside and out. It has 65k original miles and is a very rare color package. t. What you don t see is this car was involved in a minor fender bender. We replaced the front & rear bumper, headlights , grille, and repainted the damaged area to match. Also, the CarFax shows no other accidents, no airbag deployment, or no frame damage, so that is a positive. The car will come with a Rebuilt/Salvage Title (due to the history) that can be easily titled in all states. Check with your local agency to see what is required. Most banks will finance a car with a Salvage/Rebuilt Title, just check with your bank for details. If you need to get a bank to do a loan, just ask, as we have a list of them that will do so with great rates. So, don t miss out, as this is listed $10,000 below retail give us a call before someone else does. In closing my prices are set so if you are wanting to call for a lower deal, we don t negotiate as these cars sell within 5-14 days. WE SHIP WORLDWIDE!

Would be great for some 24 year old kid that makes 50k a year and wants to look "rich".

Or a track car...

meh. My 03 LS430 was in an accident, front pass side. A few pieces needed to be replaced. Along with lights and the such....nothing was wrong with it.

As long as its a good shop, and it can hold an alignment, and there are not huge gaps between panels, I would be ok with it.

I would want to see the pics from the accident as well as who repaired the car. The pictures also look like they are trying to hide things.

True. That's all I would want as well. I highly doubt they are trying to hide anything.


There is a show on some channel....forget which I think CNN late night? And its a show about flipping cars from junk yards to make money. Could just be that sorta thing, company buys low and fixes what is needed and sells for a profit.

If I had to guess they have about 14k of their own money into it. So about a 10k profit can be made.

If you have the mechanical know-how, then yes, possibly... but trying to sell a "refurbished" ISF with a salvaged or rebuilt title for a profit sounds like a risky investment to me. I am sure some good deals can be had with cars that have branded titles, but unless I was looking for a track car or a beater pickup or something to use for trips to the hardware store, I would not buy a car that had been rebuilt or salvaged.

I'm sure someone will pick this car up though.

why would it be coming with a salvage/rebuilt title if it was in a "minor fender bender"? Stay the hell away.

Mine F was in a minor accident too. I changed a few small things on it but it is not a rebuild title unlike this F. i agree with WillRockwe. why is it rebuild/salvage if it was just a minor accident? so that's a big thing. it's cheap. think about it real hard.

at least they rebuilt it with LED headlights.

What's up with the taillights? Never seen lights like that.

Yeah. Considering the cost of an is-f is pretty expensive, it'd take a lot of damage to salvage the is-f

I don't see any LED headlights. They are just painted 08 headlights. Those taillights are nasty!!
