    2007 Dodge Caliber , 60,000 km. Has hail damage on only the roof. I was wondering if paying $8000 is worth it? The average price for a comparable model minus the hail damage is 12,000 - 13,000.

    You're not actually going to buy this car, correct? Offer whatever you think you ultimately won't be purchasing.

    I wouldn't pay $8,000 for a Dodge Caliber in pristine condition.

    In fact, I wouldn't pay $8 for a Dodge Caliber in pristine condition.

    His point, or I assume, is that you post these threads about buying one beater after the other and you never make up your mind. You need to **** or get off the pot here. At least that's what I'm thinking. If you're an adult, I thought once you may have mentioned you're over 18, then just make a decision and stick with it.

    Hail damage varies, could be a scratch or a dent. This would have to be better defined before anyone can say what it's worth and what's worth it to you may not be worth it to others.

    What she said.

    You've posted so many of these threads and still haven't bought anything. Why does it matter if a hail damaged Caliber is a good purchase? You won't be buying it.

    More choices, waloshin. Perhaps a new thread…with a poll??

    Actually its time. My car is going to be written off probably tomorrow so I am looking for a car. I think I might offer 6000 - 7500 for the car. Though I dont want the car to be worth less then what I paid for it.

    You can keep them in one thread. Forum etiquette 101.

    No one is taking it personally, its just ****ing annoying for someone to post numerous threads seeking advice about the same thing and then never actually use that advice for any good. If you have no intention of actually following through on the questions you post, then you probably don't really need to be seeking any advice.

    I wouldn't purchase it...that being said, find out exactly how much a repair would cost before you offer anything. Also, when did the damage occur? If the person selling the car has let the roof go damaged for a period of time who knows what other repairs they avoided and what damage that may have caused to the car.

    At that point, they're really not advice threads anymore, it's just a bunch of meaningless spam.
