If you've ever seen some of the Silverline cars that have been through various shops in Portland... Lets just say whoever made some of the business decisions for Silverline should be in jail

I'm sure someone will buy it and be happy. It's up to us as the consumer to do the research. And if you don't do research on a 10k+ purchase, you're a dumb azz and deserve to buy a lemon. But even tho there are stories out there about Silverline, I live on the same street as them, and I've seen a lot of great work from those guys! Nick is chill, so is Gene.

I have recently bought a legacy from them and I did google the vin and it showed pictures of a minor side swipe. Its really a great car so far. But yeah I would never have purchased a car with that much previous damage.

I don't believe silverline is advertising the car as having a clean title. It's also no illegal to rebuild a totaled out car. I know that at least here in Washington, the car has to pass a state safety inspection before it can be registered for road use again.

I am not promoting silverline I am just explaining how it is legal.

And nowadays, you can get a salvaged title for airbag deployment, & I've seen airbags go off with little to no damage @ all. Not the case here obviously, but when it comes to a branded title, there is a large spectrum! The best salveged title cars are the theft recovery! Nothing wrong what so ever, just bcuz it was stolen. But I guess as long as there wasn't severe frame damage, I wouldn't care. Silverline stands by there work tho, if anything goes wrong, they will fix it quick, and free of charge most of the time.

I agree as well. It was the other website that said "Clean Title" anyways. Now that is the site I would be questioning! Lol

The problem isn't that they fix cars and resell them, the problem is that they lie about it.

The auction site also list the title as clean. It is possible to have a totaled car with a clean title. Just a better reason to make sure you do your research before buying a car.

Yup. The entire clean/dirty title system needs an overhaul. Theft recovery cars should have their own title as well.

Title fraud
Title fraud occurs when the title (the Certificate of Ownership that shows who owns the vehicle) doesn’t accurately report important information about the history of a vehicle or boat. Some of the most common types of title fraud are:

Odometer rollback, when the number of miles recorded on the vehicle’s odometer or title is reduced.
VIN cloning, when the vehicle identification number (VIN) on the title is illegally replaced with the VIN number from another vehicle. This is typically done to allow the registration of stolen vehicles.
Title washing, when a title brand is removed as paper documents are transferred between states, or when documents are altered or counterfeited.
This is more common than you'd think.

It's really not that hard either. If you get in an accident have your car towed home. When you contact your insurance just tell them, nope no major damage I don't want to make a claim. Fix the car yourself out of pocket and BAM rebuilt car with a clean title. Washing a title isn't very hard either. Especially in Oregon for some reason. I can't remember all the details, but I know it happens a ton.

Before I buy I always check under cars, under the carpet, in the truck, and even behind interior plastics if can. It's possible, but very hard to completely cover up all traces on an accident.

Did I say I did? I'm saying that you should always check the history when buying a 5digit car. And that I know a few of them, and ther chill cats. Sorry if you got burnt or just have some kind of random resentment towards them, but like I was saying, you can't be mad if you buy a car and it fux up later or w/e, cuz its ur responsibility to kno what ur buying.

There is some responsibility on the consumer to know what they are buying, sure. That does NOT make it okay for them to mislead the consumer into thinking it’s a clean title

Yes, you can be mad. You can be mad at the ****ty dealer who told you it was a clean titled car.
