Im looking at this 2017 Accord V6, Ive taken for a test drive twice its going for $29k CAD it has 5 year extended warranty bumper to bumper (finance take over) It has had a front accident based on the photo it looked minor but the claims history shows $6500 CAD in repairs, not sure if this is due to all the honda sensing sensors being replaced (sensor and airbag sensor as well) I also noticed a unusual wire gauge hanging from the bottom of the back bumper, as seen in the pictures.Driving it it seems fairly smooth but i noticed the shift from 0-20km is a bit harsh but then again my v6 08 accord never shifted the best either. (Car has a vinyl wrap on it as well should i be concerned?) Also the engine bay seemed a quite dirty (as seen in picture) is this normal for a relatively new car? (we live in decent weather)
Should I look around or is this a okay buy? Should I stick with V6 engines or go with I4 for the reliability?

WiRE GAUGE HANGING FROM BACK BUMPER?
