Hello guys thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to respond to my request, I will not be purchasing this vehicle, because the vehicle has 5 owners, that's way too much so I will be the sixth, no way. the car was loaned and titled salvage because of an accident in the past. I got the vehicle's history report from Detailed Vehicle History.

Here is the link to the report: Vehicle History Report for VIN: JTKDE167080228680

Dear forum members,

I am considering purchasing a used car with the following details: a 2008 Scion Tc with a 2.4L L4 DOHC 16V engine and a salvage title. I am hesitant about the purchase because of the salvage title, and I am seeking advice from other car enthusiasts.

My primary concern is whether or not it is worth buying a car with a salvage title. I understand that this title indicates that the car has been previously damaged, but the extent of the damage is unclear. Additionally, I worry about the long-term reliability of a car with a salvage title.

However, the price of the car is attractive, and the 2.4L engine is known for its reliability and performance. I also appreciate the sporty look and feel of the Scion Tc.

I would appreciate any insight or advice from the forum members. Have you purchased a car with a salvage title before? What was your experience with it? Are there any specific things I should look for or be wary of when inspecting the car?

Thank you in advance for your help.
