A salvage title is given to a car that is deemed to be a complete loss by an insurance company due to damage. In many cases, these cars can still be put back together with junk yard pieces and drive relatively normally for short periods of time, but in the long run are often unreliable and unsafe. Unfortunately, many salvage title cars are still available on used car lots in Los Angeles and the rest of California.
Unfortunately, cars with salvage titles are still being sold to consumers who are none the wiser about the status on their vehicle. If the dealership is selling you a used car with a salvage title, they must by law, disclose this information and have you sign documents acknowledging the status. Used car dealers live up the stereotypes, but consumers now have options to fight back.
