by total loss I am assuming that you mean it has a salvaged title? the car can be sold or traded in but its value will be less than that of a car with a clean title.

That the big confusion I do have a clean title. Please help

Ok, I'm sorry I am a little confused. What do you mean about the total loss?

I did take my car to dealer to trade it and buy a car they check carfax and they told me that is a Total loss but I do have clean title I know is confusing thano you for your help.

IF it has a clean title how can it be a total loss?

First thank you for your time, but really I bought the car 5 years ago with clean title very good car no problem, last wk a try to buy new car did go to a dealer they appraise it that when they gave me the carfax (total loss), I have a blue title I don't understand ether is so confusing , I just want to sell it with a ok price not 900 dollars. Again appreciate your help.

e only thing I can think of is that at some point.maybe before you owned the car. It was in an accident. An accident where there was a large loss. Not enough to total it at the time, but enough to affect the value now. In this age of car fax info, the dealer will have to show this to any buyer and he knows how it will affect the sale. You could try another dealer. Tell them the whole story and see what they come up with.

Thank you, I will try to go somewhere else and see. I am not going to sell it for 900 dollars.

even if you have a clean title on the vehicle, if an insurance company paid for a repair you can get a total loss mark on carfax or autocheck. Normally hard hits get it in some states however there are exceptions for example virginia is really good about placing total loss marks on autocheck and carfax for clean title vehicles. Also another way for a vehicle to get that mark is if it ran through a dealer auto auction owned by an insurance company with a clean title it will also get that mark no matter the damage extent

Thank you for your answer, I did discover that later on, but the person that sold me the car did feel like is very important to let me know.
