    Hey all,

    I am not mechanically savvy at all. I recently test drove a 1994 Honda Civic DX Hatchback and it drove well. I was thinking I might buy it but decided to run a carfax on it first. The report indicated that the vehicle had been in 2 crashes, one was listed as severe. Is it possible to fully fix a car crashed bad enough to warrant being listed as severe? I really liked the car and I need a car at this point as mine is breaking new things every week, but I don't want to get something that isn't going to be safe for me and my son.

    If you have no mechanical skills, don't buy something that has had troubles in the past. Fenderbenders are a different matter than straightening out a unibody from a serious crash. Aren't there other decent cars with fewer than 170K miles available? See about getting a mechanic to give you an opinion on whatever you buy, unless he stands to make big bucks off of a lemon.
