Car which had this accident

Im on the verge of buying a car and was told it had a "small" accident. As I know little of cars and also dont know german that well. Would anyone with soem knowledge of cars have a look at the attached pdf (the invoice of the repair) and tell me if they would be worried?

Re: Car which had this accident

Yes I believe so and the sensor for reversing was replaced. But does this have any impact on structural damage? value when selling it?

Re: Car which had this accident

any accident that can be repaired for under 1K is pretty minor. Cosmetic most likely. Google translate can be your friend...

Read to the bottom. It was € 2.6K!

Seems like a dent in the tailgate plus damage to the frame there and a new bumper.

Re: Car which had this accident

2.6k damage on a 100k car is nothing,

2.6k damage to a 10k car is another matter

in that case I recon you'll be fine, I see they took the pee with the paint costs. an eagle eyed buyer will spot the paint work especially if metallic so best keep that invoice

Read the document. It is all in there.

It had a rear crash. It was not on the bench (That would be Richtarbeiten).

Re: Car which had this accident

hehehehe just re-read the first post.

Is the car cheaper to comparable cars? the seller has been upfront showing you that which is nice, but its always a good bargaining point. If it worries you walk away, plenty of Q5's out there
