How to Check for a Salvage Title


A lack of federal regulation and widely varying state laws mean that while it’s not likely, it is possible that a car you’re considering — or perhaps a car you already own — should have a salvage title. According to the Federal Trade Commission, a currently clean title does not necessarily mean that the car is clean.

In addition, warning signs are not always readily evident. This makes it vital to check the repair and title history of any used car you’re considering, even if you do not suspect the vehicle has sustained previous damage.
