You will also see the salvaged title issue on Craigslist ads. Most seems to be pretty upfront in their ads, however some try to infer that the salvaged title was due to some really minor accident.

When my daughter bought her first car, we didn't find out about the salvage title until we went to the tax office with the guy to complete the sale and transfer ownership. I'd never even seen a title like that before.

A year or so later, when she traded up for a new car, the dealership made her an offer for the car, and then complained because it was a salvage title. DD#1 had no idea she should disclose it, and they didn't ask until after all the paperwork had been signed.
