\i am considering purchasing a used 2005 230 kompressor...:eek:
vehicle has low miles but has been writen off and repaired (front end collision)...
price seems ok but some small issues one is the skid plate(under engine cover)is missing?is that a big deal or not? the other is a noise...kind of a whine or rubb noise .starts at about 10km/hr and faster..sounds sort of like a brg or gear noise but different..doesnt matter which gear its in(its an automatic) does it in neutral while car is moving too..it is loudest when decelerating(foot off gas) not as bad when maintaning speed and pretty much dissapears when acelerating.
could the noise be caused by noise damping material rubbing drive shaft or more sserious? is it worth paying to put on hoist or should i run?

first of all any accident should be a no no on any car

espically when you know they didnt fix it right

i'd say pass this on unless they provide a lengthly extended warranty
