Should I Buy a Repairable Salvage Car?
When we hear ” repairable salvage cars for sale” some of us might be scared off. But what actually is a repairable salvage car and should you buy it? Keep reading to find out.
A salvage title can happen when vehicles get accident damage. If the value of the car is less than 75% of the repair costs, the vehicle will be given a salvage title.
This means the less value the vehicle has (or the older it is) the more likely it will be given a salvage title instead of being repaired.
Just because a car has a salvage title doesn’t mean it can’t be repaired, it just means the insurance company didn’t want to repair it. While some salvage cars actually can’t be repaired, a majority of repairable salvage cars for sale only have minimal damage.
Before you buy a salvage car, always run a carfax on the car. The carfax gives a life report of the car including things like where it was bought. If the carfax isn’t good, you should not buy the car.
