Are you saying it has a salvage title? If so, I wouldn't personal purchase it, but if you want to save some money by purchasing it, then have a local mechanic look it over for you to assure you it is safe to drive and nothing is currently wrong with it. At least for piece of mind and your wallet.

Don't do it! I just answered your other question about the airbags being deployed on this Volvo. I had an '06 Volvo S40 and I can personally tell you that repairs on this European car AREN'T cheap. Plus, with mileage THAT high + damage it sustained, you're looking at a money pit that you REALLY don't want to be in.

If you're planning to resurrect it to drive, be CAREFUL! Here in NJ there is a LONG list of things that must be done before a salvage title can be changed to a rebuilt title. In NJ a salvage title vehicle can NEVER again have a clear title. Only a rebuilt title can be issued. This will absolutely kill it's resale value. Check the DMV laws where you're at before you proceed!! HTH. -Jim

Duck and RUN! With the residual value of he car, the damage is very severe to warrant a salvage title. There is likely no way to get that car completely back to the way it should be, and repairs to them are EXPENSIVE. So expensive I would never consider owning any Volvo, no matter the history.

I agree with most of these guys, just walk away. If the air bags have been deployed then that alone is costly enough. I'd look into your states DMV laws before going to far.
