    Salvaged WRX 2013

    I was on craigslist and saw a discounted Subaru WRX with a salvaged title. The car looked like this:

    I am not knowledgeable about the structure of cars, so can anyone tell me what I should be worried about by looking at this picture, and what questions I should be asking before I buy the car?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.

    To start off with, your picture isn't working. Secondly, I'd stay far away from salvage title cars personally.

    Thanks! I fixed the link. I agree with you, but this is such a good deal IMO.

    No way. It's not that great of a price with a salvaged title. Resale is now shot on that car, and for a brand new car to have a salvaged title, it may have had quite a number done on it to have insurance declare it a loss....unless it's a theft recovery or something of the sort. I'd probably stay away from this one without a DETAILED history.

    Thank you. After browsing these forums and understanding a little more about WRX pricing, I realized it's not a good deal at all! I have been browsing Craigslist for a few months now and I rarely see 2011-2013 models come up... which is why i'm not familiar with the market. Cool. Thanks again!
