Exclamation Hi, I'm New but I Need HELP Please!!

I am looking at possibly buying a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 4dr Automatic with 73,000 miles.

I can get it for only $2500!!!

The only catch is that there is front end damage from a deer.

Could you guys possibly take a look at the pics and tell me if you think it would be a good deal to buy it and fix it up??

To fix it correctly, you will have more in it than it's worth. It will be 7 MY old in September. Don't walk away from that..... RUN.

PASS, spend a bit more on one without the damage. Once you are done repairing it, you will have spent more than if you would have purchased one without the damage in the first place.

I would definitely pass. Twice as much money and you could probably buy the same thing... but not wrecked.

Only had to pay my $1000 deductible and all I did was slightly rear end someone when they cut in front of me I was doing less that 5 mph.

Like 423 said, RUN. I don't know the status of the title, but (assuming it even went back together without your life savings) you may not even be able to register it, assuming it's salvage.
