Rebuilt Title car

Post by rn240sx » Mon Jul 20, 2020 2:51 pm

I will not go into details about the make model of car, only that this one has a rebuilt title from front quarter panel hit / damage.
The same ~year car with the same mileage with normal title & no accidents runs about $75k ... This car with the rebuilt title and same mileage is $52k ..
My question is, can i trust the rebuilt title..?? The car is out of state and has passed their state inspection and the 126 point dealer inspection. We are talking $20k difference.

Suggest you check with your insurance company. I had a rebuilt title car at one time, it sucked. Tried Farmers, Allstate, Geico, Progressive... none would insure it. Had to go to one of the smaller companies and cost was much higher.

I have progressive and they said they will insure it. But i didnt ask them if they would treat it as a normal car or if it would be a total loss without question being that is was already paid out by another insurance company.
I dont have plans to sell it or flip it, it will be like my S14 and my Genesis Coupe, i will most likely hold on to it for a LONG time and it be another weekend car / car show car
