Thanks Dominus....

Is there any way to tell from CarFax the seriousness of the accident?

I see:

11/13/2013 Illinois
Damage Report Accident reported
Vehicle towed

That could be pretty minor...or pretty major!

If it's still there next week, I can stop in and look at it. I might even ask them about the PO damage, just to see if they ack it.

Thanks J... I will keep you posted. In discussion about a trade currently, but have not seen the car in person.

Nope.. but it was bad enough to tow and sell (totaled by insurance company?). I'd ask to see some report on what was fixed or have a Lotus shop inspect it carefully.

J,

Would you have the chance to swing by and take a look in the next couple of days? I am working with a salesman named Geno and can PM you his information if you could take a look for me.

Thanks,

Mitch
