Depends on severity of accident, obviously. Torn bumper is nothing. Something that requires re-doing factory welds is a disqualification. I've seen completely repainted cars CPO'd.

From what I heard on this forum, the car with any repaint should not qualify for CPO.
There was a case when member discovered repaint after buying CPO and the dealer took the car back.

As stated it depends on the damage and the integrity of the dealer. Minor paint chips should not disqualify it but a completely repainted car should not pass!

Why do you ask? You have some doubts about the car? and why?
