Anyone have any experience buying one of these?  Most if not all have a salvage title so they are "dirt" cheap.  I now have a new driver in the house and figured if I'm paying cash, I could get a really low mileage vehicle for under $9000.  Thoughts?

Thanks!!

Can be a great deal if u don't mind the ding and dents. I know when this happens at a car dealership these can sell like hot cakes. Basically they are marking them down what the insurance is paying for the damage.

Will it have a salvage title? Many times they will after and insurance payout. I just bought a trailer last year that had been totaled due to hail damage. I got it at a big discount but then had to have it inspected by a DOT inspector in order to title it. Insurance company didn't have a problem insuring it but I took it there and they took pictures of the hail damage and thus would not cover any damage in the future to those spots. 

 

I also bought a truck last year that had a salvage title. It was a 2014 Ram 1500 with 14k miles. It had a small interior fire and the place I bought it from swapped interior parts with another wrecked truck that had an identical interior so it was basically brand new but carried a salvage title. In that case insurance was fine. An inspection was done but I did need to finance part of it. It took some looking to find a credit union that would do it and they would only go 60% of the value of the truck. I basically saved like 18,000 off the price of a new one and about 9k less than what comps were selling for so it was a good deal IMO. So if you can pay cash and depending on title status it may work out nice for you if you can live with the dings.

A salvage title will usually void any warranties still in effect..

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
