Since rebuilt title cars cost much less than clean titles, you can usually get a pretty good deal on a perfectly good, working vehicle. However, it is important that you pause for a moment and ask a few questions before purchasing the vehicle.
Here are the questions to ask before committing to a rebuilt car:
Ask for the receipts
If the car has been repaired by the current owner, it is important that you politely request a detailed breakdown of the repairs. The receipt will help you determine if the work was done thoroughly or not. This will also help you get an idea about the technician, his skill, and whether the parts used were of good quality.
Ask where the repairs were made.
It is very important to make sure that the repairs were done at a reputable shop before you commit to buying the vehicle; It will also save you from future repairs.
Ask if the car has been insured as a brand title
To avoid sending red flags to the state, it is important that you ask the owner of the car if it is insurable and if the owner was able to insure it or not. If they haven’t, it is recommended that you request that the car be insured.
Ask about train or powertrain damage
The most overlooked areas when it comes to car repair are the engine frame and transmission. This is because these parts are usually the most expensive. It is recommended to ask if these parts were affected by an accident, and you should be very careful when proceeding with the repair and purchase of the vehicle.
