If you really think about it, they would have less miles because they weren't being driven?
Because they were busy being a flood recovery? Or a major frame repair? Or stripped to pieces (theft recovery?)?

Branded titles don't happen over minor issues.

And who cares about miles? If the car is straight with no rust?
Who cares about miles? Chassis' weaken and flex more and more the older they get and the more they get used.

Thats why your odometer is how many miles the chassis has, not how many miles are on the mechanicals.

It can be done right, it just comes down to the shop not the fact that it is a salvaged title.
Minor fender benders won't brand a title. Major structural damage, flood recovery, theft recovery. If the cost to repair is more than a percentage of the cars value, the title will get branded.
