8 Reasons a Car Might Have a Salvage Title

8 REASONS HAVE A SALVAGE TITLE A CAR MIGHT "Salvage" generally refers to a vehicle that has been determined a total loss by the insurance company. Regulations differ state to state, but let's take a look at eight common reasons that a car might receive a salvage title. 1 TOTALED Total loss = Repair costs exceed a certain percentage of the car's value.
