2013 Toyota sienna limited 143k miles with clean history for $10k is a good price or not a grab?

Iím considering buying a used car that has An accident / no damage to the vehicle listed (Front end) in Carfax. Should I not buy it even if itís checked out by a mechanic and finds nothing? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
just came across this, sorry if Iím late.
A car that went true a real accident is NOT as safe as before and in case of another accident CĒV the frame wonít hold up as well to protect the passengers inside.
So you can usually get a good deal on such a vehicle but itís at a safety cost

that's assuming there is frame damage. A minor fender bender is unlikely to have frame damage.
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

Correct, most vehicles that have frame damage you can tell, it's almost impossible to put back a vehicle frame like it was before any damage.
   if there is frame damage in the front of the vehicle just by opening the hood or measuring the gaps from the hood to the panel's you could see if it's off.
 and the same with the trunk if it's a car remove the spare tire and look inside if you see any welding or misaligned panels.
 Hard to hide.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

funny story, I actually ended up tracking down the original owner to clarify what happened, and ended up buying the car.

Why?
Banks and finance companies are desperate to get them off their hands. You can get them for a couple K's off.
