should a dealer have in their listing if the vehicle has a Salvage/Junk title


Asked by Mar 13, 2014 at 09:50 AM about the 1998 Chevrolet S-10

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Through CarGurus site we found--GRANDRIVERAUTOSALES.COM  in River Grove, IL  selling a '98 S10 truck we were interested in--as well as other vehicles. We had contact with the dealer on many occasions. We asked for a carfax, they told us it was too old for one. Seemed fishy--so I pulled a report ourselves and found the truck to have a Salvage/Junk title. This was not in the listing--we asked the dealer and they disappeared. So this dealership seems they may be fraudulent

By law they have to disclose if the vehicle has been junked. It can not be licensed to be on the road until the department of motor vehicles inspects it and gives it a "salvage/junk" notice on the registration slip. Contact the better business bureau and the department of motor vehicles inspection people and report their ass.
