And i will add,you can only check this by a carfax,,,,it,s worth a little to know about the history,than it is to lose a lot more with out knowing.

An if your serious about buying one, having it checked out by a competent mechanic is key as well. Usually buying a salvage title car, be prepared to own it for the long haul as it will be tough to get your money out that you paid if you plan on selling.
