buying a new coupe need you opinion.

So lost story short. my neighbor rear ended my parked 04 g35 and totaled it. so now i am in the market for a 2012 or 2013 g37 coupe. i saw one that is a good price, but when i went and looked at the car there was a fair bit of radiator coolant splashed around the engine bay. a lot dried on the windscreen/ under tray, there was dried on coolant on the upper radiator hose and random dried on droplets on the front of the motor and around on random hoses. The car fax says there has been no damage, and the front end looks good. (paint matches and all the supports dont look like they have been worked on or repainted) the sales person said they flushed the radiator and thats the reason for the coolant. but i dont trust sales people. do you think this is worth picking up or should i pass on it?

TLDR: 2013 G37 sport coupe has radiator coolant splash around the engine bay. dealership says its fine. should i pick it up or should i pass and spend a few k more on a different sport coupe?

If your gut says pass, go with that.
There will always be another one.

Pass no quality dealership would sell a car with the engine compartment a mess!

There are so many nice G37's for sale here in SoCal, look for one with the lowest miles and a clean CARFAX. From what I've noticed on the Infiniti lots you could have any color you want too!

I love what an insurance company considers "totaled". If the rear end is all that's damaged I'd keep it on a salvaged title.

I'd pass on this car. If you have to ask yourself these questions, it probably wasn't maintained very well.
