Default 03 FX4 for $3000

http://madison.craigslist.org/cto/2504865481.html

is it a level 2 also? it has a rebuilt title, is that the same as a salvage? what do you think, does it seem fishy?

Default Re: 03 FX4 for $3000

In Michigan, rebuilt and salvage mean the same thing: 75% or more of the cars total value was required to fix it.
From the website: A salvage title is issued for a vehicle that has become a "distressed vehicle". A vehicle becomes "distressed" when one or more major component parts (such as bumpers, fenders, transmission, engine, hood, doors, frame, tailgate, body, etc.) have been wrecked, destroyed, damaged, stolen, or are missing to the extent the total estimated damage is from 75% to less than 91% of its pre-damaged cash value. The vehicle owner's insurance company will determine the amount of damage to the vehicle. The regular title is replaced with a salvage title.

Cheap for an FX4 though

yea and i think you couldnt put full coverage insurance on that with the salvage title either, but yea still cheap. maybe the frame's tweaked or something.

it must have been in an accident im sure. the drivers headlight and grilles all messed up. kinda sketchy too when theres no phone number and you have to email

oh i didnt know that, i was always told you couldnt, salvage and rebuild titles are the same right?

yea probly is a scam, ive found trucks that were really nice but they wanted to wire the money or do it like ebay cuz they were in the military blah blah so im sure it was fake because it was too good to be true

well they are sort of...when a vehicle is totalled the title becomes salvage, if you decide you repair it you have to fill out paper work,take pictures of the repair process and then you send to the dmv a request to change the title to rebuilt
