This is the most obvious advantage of buying a salvage title. Compared to their clear-titled counterparts, salvage-titled cars are sold for much lesser at an auction. You can save a whole lot of money by opting to buy a salvage vehicle. Even a virtually intact and fully functioning car with a salvage title will be sold at no more than 75% of the market value of its clear-titled counterpart. Most salvage titled cars are sold for even less.
When you can’t afford (or want) to avoid damaging your new expensive car on grueling or risky trips, a salvage title car can be a good, prudent substitute option for rides in such situations. Even buying fully totaled ones that are beyond repair can be an economical decision as you can get a spare part or two, which might have cost you a fortune if you opted for buying it at retail value.
