    depends what was wrong with it.

    Salvage-flood

    Salvage-accident

    Salvage- stolen recovered

    Usually its not a great idea to buy a car w/salvage title. Once its been in an accident it never runs the same

    Only if you ever plan to sell it.

    Salvaged titles are like gambling... the odds are against you but it doesn't mean you might not come out ahead. My car is a salvage title but it was salvaged 4 years ago when it only had 4k miles on it.... then some guy drove it for 4 years, put 31k miles on it and I figured it was safe :dunno:

    i had a friend who bought a salvaged late model maxima. He got the history and found out it was rear ended. The motor wasn't harmed but good luck trying to get me to sit in the back seat.
