Salvage Title

So I am still looking to get a Camaro but I keep coming across Salvage Titles!! i live in California so AAA doesn't have full coverage on salvage cars I think. Is there a way to completely remove that title so I can get full coverage. The insurance is the only thing that scares me about salvage... and whether or not the camaro was fixed properly. But as far as I know it can't be done? Right?

Once the title is salvage it stays salvage for life. Even with a federal inspection so you can drive and register it, it will still be salvage.People used to buy a salvage car say in kansas then register it in ohio where the dont use salvage then to another state to "wash" the title but now they are followed by vin number not the title

Ohio definitely has salvage titles. I've bought many salvage title cars over the years and most of them came from Ohio. In Kentucky, once the registration process is completed on a salvage title car, the title is changed from salvage to rebuilt.

Did you check with another insurance company? I'm driving a former salvage title car as we speak and I have full coverage on it. I know a lady who couldn't get full coverage on her car because it was a former salvage title car, but she was with a different insurance company. So, at least in this state, that rule is by the insurance companies and not the state. I'm not sure about California though.

He didn't ask for advise on buying a car with a salvage title - in fact he stated he is OK with it. He's looking for advise on getting insurance.

I've owned a couple of salvage title cars over the years and had zero issues with either of them. I lived in Kentucky at the time but State Farm gave me full coverage.

I thought you could rebuild the car, repair blah whatever... Then get a clean title on it? I'm pretty sure you can because one of my cars were a previous salvage , it was rebuilt now has a clean title. Didn't cost too much to repair in the first place.. Not toooo much is what I'm saying, it just depends

I agree with you. I've owned a lot of them and I've actually gotten better service out of the salvage ones than the new ones I've bought.

Maybe you can get a clean title for a salvage car in Mississippi, but I don't think you can in most states. If I buy a car that's been wrecked, I want it to have a salvage title, for two reasons. 1 If it has a salvage title, it's going to be cheaper, and that's the whole point of buying a wrecked car in the first place. 2 If I sell it, it's going to be a whole harder for the buyer to claim that he didn't know that it had been wrecked, if salvage is emblazoned across the front of the title in bold print.

In Arizona, I know there is a way to get a salvage title to "rebuilt" title, but frankly is still considered the same lesser title.

From everyone's experience, what would you say a salvage title does to the value of the car? Take off 30% of the KBB value (no damage)? More?

Currently looking at a salvage title Camaro, (actually a former GM partner car, no accident) with quite a few upgrades but scared of the implications of the salvage title in the future. KBB says normal value is $25,000 and car has roughly $25,000 worth of mods. Thoughts?
