It's an '11 dts w/ 55k & a mile long list of dealer repairs already done: radiator replacement, lower control arms, rear main seal, steering gear, catalytic converter, motor mounts, and oil changes. Looks 100% but fenders were repaired 3x after minor accidents. Would you say everything fixed by now or run away!

Some of that sounds like it was repaired due to those "minor accidents"

I agree. I could not imagine all those problems occurring naturally thru wear and tear in 4 years. My wifes 2010 DTS has only needed a fuel pump in 50k miles. Hell, my 06 DTS has only needed front struts due to noisy upper mounts in 116k miles.

Dealers have a way of checking for body filler. Have one of their people go over the car - while you are with them - and let you know how much filler is hiding damage from those collisions.

My wife's previous car was hit 3 times by others, totally not her fault, but she got dinged with a reduced trade-in value none the less. Make sure you're not buying one of those.

I would run too lol, something isnt right....most northstars leak oil but NOT A LOT so i can understand the rear seal....control arms bad at 55k miles is unheard of so if you ask me its more to that car than what you know.
