Hey Folks i am in the process of purchasing a new vehicle, and was looking into something in my budget (2-4k) so as of today i have not found anything only junk.. well i was told by a friend of mines that he bought a vehicle in an online auction SALVAGE CARS AND MOTORCYCLES FOR SALE | COPART AUTO AUCTION REGISTERED BROKER so im wondering if anyone has some insights on online auctions.

This is just me two cents worth, so take it or leave it. If you are a mechanic or autobody tech, and have the tools and knowledge to fis one of these cars on your own, and get parts at cost they can be a decent deal. The problem with a "Salvage Title" vehicle is they will never be worth as much as the same vehicle with a regular title. Plus anyone buying a vehicle like this will find financing thru a bank or credit union VERY DIFFICULT. Most financials won't touch a "Salvage Title" vehicle with a 10 foot pole. So if you can do the work, plan to keep the car yourself, and don't have much money, go for it. Otherwise it can be a big gamble.
