You can find salvage cars for sale at salvage auctions, your local Craigslist, salvage yards and on eBay. Salvage cars come with a salvage title and may need to be inspected and re-titled before being driven on the streets in most states.
Salvage vehicles often need significant repairs to become street legal. Common problems in salvage cars include airbag system issues, triggered anti-theft devices, and brake or transmission system damage. Always have a professional examine a salvage vehicle before making a purchase. A knowledgeable mechanic can help you make an informed decision about the severity of the vehicle's damage as well as its value.
