A salvage title could be huge problems or just stuff that was able to be safely fixed. Have a good mechanic check it out.

I have 2 Mazda 3s with basically the same engine plus the iA. They have all been great cars. I love the iA (the prior name for the Yaris). Absolutely no problems. I would buy another without a concern.

Find out why it has a salvage title and get it checked out.

The price seems high for for the mileage and the salvage title should knock another 3,000 or so off. (my guess)

According to the insurance company the cost to repair was 18,000. There must have been a lot of damage underneath.

Per kbb, a salvage title should reduce the value 20 to 40%.

I wouldn't pay more then 70% of what a similar mileage clean title car would cost assuming you can confirm they fixed everything underneath.

Also keep in mind, prices are coming down.
