Buying a car that's been in an accident

I'm car shopping for my wife right now, and we just went out to test-drive a 2014 Corolla. We both liked the car, it drives nice, it comes with a good service record, lower miles for its age...but it's got 2 damage incidents on the CarFax (Which the dealership was forthcoming about)

The first was rear bumper damage in 2015, the second was front center bumper in 2017. The bumpers both do look newer than the rest of the car, and the prices are in line with bumper replacements, but there's that big question mark.

That being said, the car is noticably cheaper than comparable examples, and it doesn't seem to have affected it at all.

Is it worth the risk, or should I move on?
