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!

Said this before. If you're planning on being a short duration owner, stay away, since resale will most likely suck.

Many years ago, our daughter bought a GEO Prizm with salvage title. Since she planned on keeping it for a long duration, I said OK. Bottom line is purchase price was good, & car went from about 50,000 miles to about 250,000 miles in her possession. Worked out very well for her.
