Salvage titles

2006 Ford F250 Powerstroke Diesel, SuperCab, 4x4, Low Miles ! ! !

Any reason not to buy a salvage title? I know the obvious ones are it will be hard to sell, and may be hard to get a loan on. But other than that is there a reason not to buy one, as long as they can prove its been repaired by a certified shop and all done correctly?

an 06' with 40k on it for that price is un heard of in my books, seems a little to good to be true

Yeah im going to call them this morning here.

I guess being salvaged due to water would kill the theory, i would never buy anything thats had water damage. But if it was a wreck and it was correctly repaired by a good shop it seems like a great deal!

It could be tough to get someone to insure it since it has already been totaled.

No as long as it passes inspection for titling its fully insurable

Okay awesome! If its not water damage i am going to go take a look at it.

What does the whole 5 speed transmission mean, it says in there that 4 speed is standard but i didnt think ford made 2 different auto's? Are all 5r110 transmissions 4 speeds or 5 speeds?

It might be a theft recovery? I agree on the water damage part though

Yeah that is true, a theft recovery would be the best honestly! As long as its still all there at least.
