Depends on the state. We got rid of most state inspections when they turned out to be fraud opportunities. So if it was never in a body shop, (even for touch ups, those are reported), … and how much major servicing did a 22K mile car need? That’s not many oil changes by mileage.The carfax states that between 1990 and 2017 the car was never inspected. Not sure how someone would put 122K miles on the car without ever getting an inspection done on it.
The seller said the car belonged to her father who passed away in 2017. As far as she knows it’s 22K miles.
Any ideas how much a shop would charge for the repair?? But, after asking that, with a rusted area like that what else could be hidden??
