We recommend you stay far away from cars with rebuilt titles.
Their safety is a question mark, and so is their value. No reputable car dealer will take a rebuilt-title car in trade. If you try to sell your rebuilt-title car yourself, you must disclose that information to potential buyers. You cannot legally remove a “rebuilt” brand from your car’s title.
If you are considering buying a vehicle with a rebuilt or salvage title, learn how to insure a salvage title car first. Not all types of car insurance are always available. Financing a rebuilt-title car is already difficult, but any bank that does loan you money for a rebuilt-title car will require full-coverage insurance. Making a proper car insurance comparison will be difficult, because few are willing to write comprehensive and collision insurance on a car whose value is hard to pin down.
You should be able to find liability insurance more easily.
