Get a full inspection. Before buying a car with a salvage title, make sure to have it inspected by a mechanic you trust—don’t just rely on the owner’s description of the vehicle’s current condition. This way, you’ll know what sort of damage you might be dealing with if you purchase the car.
Check the car’s history. Double-check what led to the vehicle being assigned a salvage title. You can visit the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) to get a car history report from one of its data providers. Also, be sure to ask the seller for receipts and estimates for the repairs, or contact the body shop that performed the work.
See when the salvage title was issued.A car that received a salvage title years ago but that has been dependably driven in the time since is generally a more certain bet compared to a vehicle that was damaged more recently.
Consider your financing options. Lenders typically see cars with salvage titles as very risky investments, which could make it difficult to get a loan for this kind of vehicle.

Good Luck!

Thanks for everyone comments, I've gone through everyone comments
Thank you guys for the concerned raised here, I decided to do my due diligence before spending so much money especially after concerns raised here, I'd rather get a clean title one, anyways I already run the VIN Check on this car, yes this car was sold at auction for $7500, and the damage seems to be serious, what do you guys think?
(It's only $15 if you guys don't want to spend $40 for a Carfax)

Here is the car report: Get Instant Vehicle History Report
