Wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. Engine setback indicates a major frontal impact which can affect everything from the engine back to the differential. Find another car. There is no way to really determine the actual potential damage to the drivetrain and frame w/o tearing it all down. 2-3 inches of setback is significant. There is a lot of aluminum between the fan and the tailpipe and.. it's all pretty brittle..

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
