    Buying a salvage title vehicle?

    I have been looking at a tacoma that a used car lot has; the price is very low but that is because it has a salvage title. They say it was hit in the front driver side and the frame was bent, but that the truck was repaired. I drove it around and it seems to drive fine, no weird quirks or...
