dude, with all the problems everyone has with their V's (diffys, motor mounts, flaking buttons) buying one that has been in accident will only introduce a new set of problems, I would beware. The creaks and groans a car like that has the potential to produce would keep me away. Find one that suits your needs but Id stay away from "fixed" V's and just buy one that has a completely clean carfax and minimal service history.

Go test drive it and if serious have it checked out by a reputable service shop. If you can get a great deal, it checks out and you like it, why not. Just validate the remainder of the factory warranty still applies and for how long etc.

Every car has issues the V mostly suffers from poor dealer support.

Pass, do not proceed. V's are getting cheap enough that the few dollars that you could potentially save on a salvage title will cost you nothing but headaches when you decide to sell it.

This car was on ebay a few weeks ago and didn't sell! I can ask you how much you'd be willing to pay for this car. Keep in mind, it is a salvage title so there is absolutely NO warranty and the dealer has no obligation to warranty this car for even 1 mile! Also, the title states 48k miles and the odometer reads 3k miles...WTF? Bottom line is, if you're close by and can look at it, and you know what your doing, then see what you think! The car can be bought for $25k as I actually emailed him and we spoke thru emails a couple of times. So, if it worth that to you, then look at it. It could be not as bad as it appears but it could be MUCH WORSE also! You need to know what your looking at! Ask if the salvage inspection was done already and what you need to do if you were to purchase it, as far as titling, as I am not sure what Florida laws are on salvage titles!

P.S. The reason I checked on the price is because my friend thought about buying it and modding the hell out of it! He wanted to pay $22k but I figured the guy owns it for $23k after talking with him.

I already said there was no warranty to that post from someone. You said 'if you can steal it' and I asked already what is stealing it to you guys! I also wrote what I believe he has into it and how much you 'can' buy it for! So, I am just wondering what some of you guys would buy it for? How much? I do know it all depends on close inspection but let's say it checks out to appear OK!

Just remember that even if I went and checked it out and it appeared good, there can always be other problems down the road but I do trust myself. I say 'I' went and looked because I have bought and sold prolly 1000 cars in my younger days, then had a wholesale lot for 4 years, then had a body shop for 5 years. So I know junk when I see it closely!

He is local and for $8k-$10k difference it is sure worth looking at! Not saying I am all for salvage titles cars but you can look up the vin# and see exactly why it is a salvage title. There are many reasons that it would be worth saving that much and many for saying 'no way'. I can't remember why it was a salvage title but if I recall, it wasn't the end of the world!

There is one on Ebay now my friend and I just looked at in Ohio. It is a one owner spotless car that has no paint work.

This car seems pretty good and I guess I'd rather have 40k miles then one with 'who knows' miles! For the guy who posted this, I would bid on that one and try and win it. Good luck!

Just a heads up on salvage title cars, it isn't always that they totaled it because of 70% book value. Many times there are mitigating circumstances that add to totaling a car and it ending up with a salvage title. Bottom line is, I am not recommending a salvage title to anyone who isn't 100% knowledgable in the situation and even then, there would be probably 1 in 10 that are OK and that is if you can steal it.

I've bought a number of salvage cars... For like $2,500 so I didn't care! Junk is Junk is Junk is Junk.

It is entirely possible that the car played submarine in Katrina, in which case free wouldn't be cheap enough.

Often times a theft recovery is Salvage, nothing ever was damaged, just missing parts needed replacement, those cars can be fine.

Good luck.

If that car is really a theft recovery with 5,200 miles on it and properly repaired as stated...

Then $23,000 was a GREAT DEAL! Buyer probably saved $10,000 - $11,000 vs. a car that's not Junk with a warranty.

It is a 40k 'miles' car on ebay with a reserve of $26.5k, an '05. It has met it's reserve. The salvage title car sold you say? He wanted $25k but figure he would get out of it for $24k or maybe $23k if he didn't sell it.

I just thought running the vin on the salvage title would itemize what's been done to see if seller is telling the truth about stolen recovery and no airbags deployed. Maybe the original owner lived in New Orleans! Just curious about these things!

First I would like to thank everyone who responded. My biggest concern is the electrical system in the car. Mechanical problems just give a reason to mod the car. I have owned a 93 GT Conv Mustang that was salvaged, drove the car HARD for two years and didn't have one problem. Very Very nice car. I guess I don't discount a salvage as much as some, due to a positive experience with one. I will try to look at the salvaged V, and have a body shop and mechanic look at it if it passes my initial inspection. I also looked at the SRT-8 Jeep on Ebay, and want to test drive one. Any feed back on the Jeep would be appreciated. Don't know much about them. Anyone know.

Here is the description from Ebay: You are bidding on a vehicle in excellent condition. Nearly a year ago, it was involved in a minor accident with some damage to the front-left as a result. It was auctioned off by the insurance company as a recovered theft vehicle. Since there was no key, the auction house couldn't check the odometer reading, so they went ahead and slapped any random number in the documents and marked it as "not actual". Therefore, title shows 48,261 not actual miles. Carfax and common sense will tell you that there was no odometer tampering involved. This CTS-V was bought new at a local Hubacher Cadillac dealership. Maintenance records (if there are any) and other inquiries can be made with them. Repair included replacement of a front bumper cover, left fender, headlight and a grille. Thankfully, the damage was not significant enough to deploy the air bags. The repair was performed by a licensed shop with extensive body repair experience using only original GM parts. The sedan is currently not registered. Buyer will have to register it in his state of residence, which may or may not involve some extra steps compared to registering a clean title vehicle. We can also register it in California at buyer's request (reg. fee will apply). The owner is motivated to sell, so there is A VERY LOW RESERVE set on this auction.

01-18-07, 07:08 AM
Since they stated it was in an accident and not stolen, you can rule that out. I would find it hard to believe that a MINOR accident caused a V or any car for that matter to be totaled out They don't total cars for minor accidents. At some point in time an insurance company decided the cost to fix this car was greater then the cost of replacement. If a car gets hit that hard to total it out, no manufacture is going to warranty it. Why would they warranty a car that has been totaled and keep assuming the responsibiliy of fixing it. Trust me, if car fax knows cars a branded salvage so does GM. I would buy something like this for track car pupposes only. If you are looking for a quality V I would pass on this one. $24,000 is not even a good deal when there are others on Ebay for $26500. Is it worth all the questions and headachs.

ctsvflorida
01-18-07, 07:26 AM
Unless the instrument cluster was replaced we can honestly assume the mileage is correct because when cars go through these ordeals, it takes time and the car is an '05! Between settling and then fixing and then bringing it to auction, so 48k miles seems out of line. Next is to check the vin#. Can someone run the vin# on this thing for this guy? Let's be sure it was not out of New Orleans! Again, as stated in earlier post, I will tell you that I spoke with this guy when it was last listed and it 'appeared' to me that he was telling the truth and it is worth looking into a bit more before condemning it. I am very good at telling sincerity on the phone but I could also be wrong. My gut was that he was telling the truth! I play a lot of poker and do very well because I can read people. Again I will say that on the phone, I could be wrong! It is only worth a look, and being that you are local, you can see it! I would not recommend it to anyone buying it unseen for even $20k! Another plus for you is that he does have 100% feedback from 400 transactions, which is not to shabby! I think it may be up a little high in price now but $24k would work if it was to check out...maybe! The '05 with the 37k miles will sell for more than the reserve of $26.5, you'll see!

Keep us posted when you look at it and hopefully someone can run the vin# for you!

Theft recoverys take time to find, so the owner was probably paid off by the insurance company prior to recovery. The insurance company then owns the car, I'm not sure but I think that may require a Salvage title by law in California or some underwritting guidelines may require it so it can be written off. GM doesn't warranty Junk (Salvage).

That 5,200 mile cluster might be a used replacement that came out of a total since a theft recovery very, very likely had that stolen along with the Nav, steering wheel, airbags, possibly much of the interior so someone could finsh a V poser.

It's Junk, but I'd buy it if the price was right and MY mechanic had verified that the frame is properly repaired or repairable and it had not been under water.

U da man OWNER! Thanks! So, my guess is that the car really does have 3900 mi. on it! I would say that it would be worth looking into for $24k or so if it was a stolen recovery and didn't wreck the radiator support at worst. The '05 will sell for more and had 40k mi. on it. You know it really is a toss up and close inspection would need to be done on this thing! Prolly better to go the $28k (or whatever the '05 will do) and have 10k of warranty left.

One thing not clear is the 'expiration odemeter' which reads 48,261 when it should read 50,261?

The problem is the car is a TMU car as well as salvage. (true mile unknown)
God forbid if you ever wat to resell the car it will be worth nothing. It will be you now telling some story on why the odo is incorrect and why the car has a salvage title. If it were one or the other I may consider it. But for a few thousand more to get a straight car with warranty and no stories, you can't beat it. For all you know the car had 100k on it and they put a new odo in it. Once branded TMU on title you could put whatever mileage you want. That is why the brand it TMU, no one really knows. TMU cars usually sell for thousands less then retail and this one on top of that is salvage! Plus there is NOOOO warranty!

All salvage titles are TMU, so that is a given. Prolly best to buy the one with 40k, I agree. I would have liked to wait and find one with a blown motor or buy that salvage title before the damage was fixed for prolly $17k or so and modded the hell out of it! :thepan:

Thanks for running the VIN. It is nice to see I started a thread that sparked conversation. I agree and disagree with some of you. When you mod the V, add a maggie, or change whatever you run the chance of voiding your warranty anyway. If I spent $10K less on the car, I would have to make that much in repairs to break even. I agree that the way to go is to have a warranty on a used car due to not knowing what you are getting. I have owned good used cars, and bought the extended warranty on all. I used the warranty on all, two had the tranny replaced. My 93 Mustang Coupe EX-CHP (still have), and a 98 Tahoe (bought in 2000). The only car that never went into a shop due to mechanic failure was the 93 Conv GT, Salvage title theft recovery. I bought it from a Lt. Colonel at Nellis AFB, where I was stationed, so the integrity of the Colonel is probably higher than the guy with the V. ???????

Every state is different but the two I know of are TMU automatically.

Salvage title = Very high risk.

If you are a mechanic w/ the tools and garage to fix major car problems easily it MIGHT be worth the risk, but even then it might not.

I bought my CTS-V cert. pre-owned from a dealer w/ 13,500 mi. for $30K. It looks like new, clean carfax, and has a 6yr 100K BUMPER to BUMPER warranty. Wait for a good cert pre-owned one.

Mine's and 04 but it wasn't titled till 3/05 and only had 13,500 miles. It does not have the sunroof, which I prefer, but that ain't a deal breaker at that price.

Mine was titled in 7/05! Incredible right? Me and you may be the only ones without a sunroof and I actually looked for one without a roof. I would've taken one with a roof if it was a great deal but now I hear all these horrible stories and I am glad I did not get one. For the driver just driving around with 400hp for not much of any reason, it is fine, but for the guys like me that run it pretty hard and go high speeds, it is not good. The guys who do hard cornering are getting ripples in the roof and the guys going high speeds are having it sucked or pulled down at those high speeds and then it rattles like a sheet box. I am very happy with my sunroofless V!:)

Hey CTS Florida! I called the dealer selling that one on Ebay that sold and the high bidder was a 29 yr. old male from Florida. They are shipping it down there Tuesday! You will have a new V friend down there!
