For me there would be only two things needed to consider on this one... first and most important is if there is any structural damage to the car? Is there any bend in the frame? You can take any mechanic worth his salt and they would be able to tell you (body pannels matching up is also a decent quick indicator of this). Second would be if the price is low enough that its worth buying a vehicle you know has been in an accident over something simillarly priced but a bit older. hope this helps

This is quite a sticky question. The price is really low for this car. When cars are in accidents where the front or rear are crushed, the entire front end or rear end is replaced. A seasoned welder can go in with a minimum of welds and replace the entire front clip or rear clip in such a way that it would not be noticed by the untrained eye. To you it may look perfect, but like Kasey said any mechanic worth his salt could spot defects. Especially structural where the wheel alignment will never be correct. Take a look at the title. See if it has been reissued from being totaled. If it has, take a pass on it. There is nothing like getting a car that should be scrap metal and you have to replace the tires every 5,000 miles because the car is going down the road sideways.
