Looking for your advice on buying a used 2013 ford fusion hybrid

Hi everyone,

I'm considering purchasing a used car and I came across a 2013 ford fusion hybrid with a 2.0L L4 DOHC 16V HYBRID engine. However, the title status is listed as salvage. I'm not sure if I should go for it or not, so I'm hoping to get some advice from the forum members.

My main concern is the salvage title. I'm not sure what caused the car to be salvaged and whether there could be any hidden damages that could cause problems down the line. On the other hand, and the fact that it's a ford fusion means that it should still be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

I'm also curious about the price. Since the car has a salvage title, I assume the price should be significantly lower than the market value. But I don't want to end up paying for a car that will cost me more in repairs down the line.

So, what do you guys think? Should I go for this car or not? Are there any red flags that I should be aware of when buying a car with a salvage title? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

You may have better luck on the other Fusion forums since this site is specific to the 2017+ V6 Sport & MKZ 3.0T models. If you are looking for any into relating to the drivetrain or hybrid-specific electronics.

That being said, in general unless you're experienced and know what to look for, do not purchase a salvage-titled vehicle.
