Yes, depending on where you intend to "commute". A prop strike requires a mandatory engine tear-down and inspection. $$$ even if nothing needs to be repaired / replaced. There is a wing bolt AD that can cost real money if the mounting holes have become elongated. A few specific airframe parts can be expensive to buy and hard to find if you need to replace them. The Tiger was great in its day and I flew one for about 150 hours. Fast and economical for the horsepower, but a C182 is cheaper to insure and the sun doesn't beat you to death so much in the summer..

If it has a history of damage, you need to have it inspected by an A&P/IA before you make an offer to purchase.
