That car is worth half that asking price around here. Who cares if it has a clean title, it clearly isn't "clean". It has a laundry list of problems. Cosmetic doesn't matter, but you don't overpay to buy problems like alignment off, possibly due to front end wear or frame damage, and an AC that's probably nearing death. Cat is ready to go any minute if it's original.

I don't bother fixing the cosmetic issues on what was a $17k used 2006 Acura, so I certainly wouldn't waste my time making an unappealing car look like a pristine unappealing car.
