Salvage Cars. Interesting description. "moderate front end damage" and a salvage title. In my book if it was totaled it surely wasn't moderate damage. And all of the cars I clicked on have the exact same description.

This vehicle has a history of a moderate front end damage due to involvement in a collision that occurred some time ago. In the process of repair several parts were replaced including front bumper assembly, hood, right fender, right headlight and other miscellaneous items. Fortunately, the extent of impact was not severe enough to deploy the air bags, they are intact and functional. Damages this vehicle sustained did not undermine its structural integrity. Repairs were done by a reputable auto body repair shop that specializes in imports. Following the completion of all repairs, this vehicle had undergone emissions, brake, and light inspections and tests, which are necessary to register the vehicle in California.

Due to the fact that this vehicle was involved in a collision, a salvage certificate was issued on it.

A little shaddy. The Caddy with 771 miles has this description which is the same as the others What scheduled maintenance is required under 3000k miles? And how long ago could the damage have occured?

This sedan had just undergone a scheduled maintenance with all appropriate fluid checks. Refer to detailed pictures provided for a close-up of the vehicle. This vehicle has a history of moderate front end damage that occurred some time ago.

There are various reasons that vehicles are branded with "salvage" titles. Flood, excess damage, are primary. I know some people who actually seek to buy these cars for the "value". personally I dont like messing with them. There is always a risk involved with them IMO.
