Default thoughts about buying this car?

i'm seriously looking into buying this 2007 TL (base), and I'm in Canada. I took the car to my mechanic who says it's not mint, has some maintenance that should be done (check calipers, hand brake may be worn, evap cap code) but that there doesn't seem to be anything seriously wrong, seems about average, doesn't seem like the seller is trying to get away with something and priced pretty well. the guy seems decent too.

but i just saw the carproof from when he got it from a dealer, and the first (previous to current seller) owner claimed an $11,000 accident claim when the car only had about 35,000km (22,000 miles) on it. that's not a typo...$11,000.

i'm no mechanic, but that seems high, and i'm concerned about the safety (even though my mechanic says the car looks to be generally in good condition).

any thoughts about that? should i be concerned about buying this car?
