    Well.. as now you have taken the ownership nothing can be done. You believed on the seller and accepted that whatever he said is true and he is honest in this deal.
    Anyways as long as the car running fine with no mechanical issues you should not just worry. Get it checked again for all major components like suspension or anything under carriage. Just move forward.

    Dont worry u still have bought the car in a pretty reasonable price even if its fully touched up. Some times the Mechanics just say that in chaska while they have Zero knowledge about cars. Once a Mechanic came with a buyer an Announced " Sir Jee Poori ki Poori Gari Painted hai " while the car was totally Genuine even bumpers were in genuine paint and i was like " WTF " . So never trust these guys. Chill out and Enjoy ur ride

    there are 3 reasons of repaint..
    1 . when owner paints his car due to minor scratches..
    2. normal dent with some amount of polycate.
    3. Major dent with repaired seals..

    well i dont really knw what reasons were behind the repaint originally...at least for the door the owner clearly stated said that a donkey cart ran into it...so guess no major accident with that...but the "striking a finger sound test" doesnt really tell any other part being repaired extensively(if those parts are repainted that is)...!

    Dear, believe me 98% of on-road painters only make a "wild guess" about paint and condition.

    Take an example of one of my own cars, it has never been repainted and not left outside our possession for a single day/night. We are certain but every 2nd person says, "gari achi tayar karwai hai ap ne"

    If u really want to know about the actual condition. Go to Honda 3S and tell them u want to sale the car with new one (replacement) and want to get it evaluate. They will tell you because they have professionals and as they will have to buy it, so they take a keen look around and will tell you.

    Most people selling around are liars; 1 honda civic purchased by a friend after believing on "total genuine ke awaaz" but afterwards he found it total opposite

    as you took the decision and decisions can be either right or wrong. if it is wrong even then take it easy and enjoy the drive.

    peace of mind is in your own hand so no need to get confused.. peace !!
