Question type: Shopping & Pricing

The car was totaled by an insurance agency. It had such serious damage in an accident that it was deemed not financially worthwhile to repair. Most people will never buy a car with a salvage title.

depending on what year the car is, a salvage title doesn't ALWAYS mean the car was damaged that bad. For example my 98 avenger as a value of around 1,500. if i did $1,200 in damage to it, they would total the car most likely. Which it's really not that hard to get $1,200 in damages, and it could all be stuff that wouldn't hurt the car if it was fixed.
