When the unibody of a 2009 Honda civic 4DR is damaged


Asked by 1EarthMother Nov 13, 2012 at 10:25 AM about the 2009 Honda Civic LX

Question type: General

If a 2009 Civic LX is involved in a crash and as a result received considerable damage to the unibody and
repaired, would that put the car in the "don't walk, RUN" category if it was for sale?

Depends on what kind or risk and unknowns you want to deal with. Are you getting it for a steal? If you have to ask, you probably already know the answer.

im surprised they didn't consider the car totaled most insurance companies would


They did total it and a salvage title has been issued.

Be very careful! Post-Hurricane Katrina many states have passed/changed laws regarding how and if a car can be salvaged. Here in Texas, several persons have been charged with FELONY FRAUD when attempting to re-title salvaged cars. http://www.dmv.org/tx-texas/salvaged-vehicles.php It would be a shame to spend even a cent for a car, only to end up with an ugly yard ornament! Check your local/state laws first...
