1997 ford mustang v6 3.8L - $2200.....salvage title...should i buy it?
First off, it could cost upwards of $1,000 to have the airbags installed properly. This is NOT a DIY job! Airbag units contain an explosive charge that can KILL you if not handled properly.
Secondly, a salvage title means that they car has been totaled and written off by the insurance company or has suffered major accident damage. Without an expert inspection you have no way of knowing if the repairs were done properly. If they were not done properly you could be driving s death-trap.
The asking price of $2,200 is close to the value of that year and model in excellent condition. A vehicle with a branded title should be priced no more than 50% of one that has not been wreaked. In this case, that's about $1,000 to $1,200. Given the cost of getting airbags done this POS is worth no more than pocket change.
