What is the downside of a rebuilt title?
A Rebuilt Title Car’s Warranty Is Typically Voided
Once a vehicle is totaled or titled as a salvage vehicle, that typically voids the automaker’s original warranty. That means you’re on the hook for major repairs that could result from unseen damage, even if the car is almost new.
Why do so many used cars have rebuilt titles?
A rebuilt title reflects that a vehicle has been rehabilitated after being issued a salvage title, which would have resulted from extensive collision damage, fire, flood or even a manufacturer buyback following a successful lemon-law claim.
Why are rebuilt cars so cheap?
Due to the fact that the cars were damaged at some point, most rebuilt title vehicles are less expensive than other used cars. In fact, some experts estimate that you could save up to 50% of a car’s cost if it has been reconstructed.
