P.S.: The owner urges me to speak the mechanic (and believe me, I will) as he says that while the flaws "may sound a bit ominous," they're minor and experienced by any car at 100k mi.

In his mind, a car's never the same after an accident and can affect the tracking (the car can pull to one side or the other) and lead to uneven wear on the tires and whatnot.

Pass on the car and wish the owner good luck. You'll find something much better.
