nice price indeed... I found one like that here, but the black primer kinda got to me. I'd like to avoid body work if at all possible... I don't mind some dents and dings, but the last time I painted a car it took me way too long.

I agree. Finding a freshly painted VX was a huge plus for me. Body work takes forever if you want it to look good AND last.

For this VX, it scares me it's from the northeast, is in primer, and says it is rust-free. Often this means there is Bondo hiding the rust, and the primer is there to cover up some of the evidence. Buyer beware. This is a used car tactic I have seen in the NE many many times.

Carfax and truth don't go together very often. I've done a few on my cars I've owned so far, and all of them have been false. From not showing any accidents to not showing the car was stolen and one car which was almost totalled, showed no accidents... They do sometimes get the owner history right, so that is what they are best for I think.
