Run bro unless you are getting a smoking deal (1/2) price. I have never seen anyone come out good on a salvage.

“Salvage Title”, by 20% - 50% of the normal, fair market retail value of the vehicle without a “Salvage Title”.



I see them as disposible vehicles. Worth next to nothing, except as much as someone is willing to pay. They took a (resale) value hit the moment damage occurred and the car was deemed "salvage/rebuilt" title, versus a clean title vehicle of similar comparision.

imo wrecked is probably the worst, i bet you will have a lot of underlying issues after purchase. i probably wouldn't give more than 10k

I have a 1999 Chevrolet camaro that got totalled. Some idiot pulled out in front of me when I was going 40 mph down mason rd in Katy. The insurance company totalled it out bc both airbags deployed and just front end damage. Car still runs and I'm fixing it now. I bought the car for close to $8200 and they told me that since airbags and the damage was half the price of the car then that's why they totalled it.

$10k for that one, max. And that's only if it was put back together perfect.
