Keep looking. Unless you can absolutely be sure that the damage was fixed correctly, it's not worth it. Find one that was not crashed. Yes there are vehicles that are perfectly fine after being repaired, but there are also others that end up giving you annoying and even expensive headaches down the road.

Things that can or are wrong can be, peeling paint (poor prep work) bad suspension or bad alignment (wears tires out faster) paint that fades at different rates, cracked radiator that shows up later, leaking A/C system, electrical problems, poor resale value etc.
