Corvettes have stood the test of time, particularly in the highly competitive car industry. However, buying salvage corvettes needs careful consideration. This video discusses why you should avoid buying cars from most auction sites.
The decision to buy a salvage corvette depends heavily on the impact and location of the crash. Avoid the following when purchasing salvage corvettes.
The dealership should be honest and upfront about the corvette being a salvage, whether it has extensive damage or not. Stay away if they are unwilling to disclose why it was deemed a salvage.
It is essential to look at the implication of the damage, especially for a sports car. If the damage is at the front, consider the chances of the engine being damaged. Superficial damage could be easy to deal with. But it could be a sign of severe damage.
Corvettes are low-lying vehicles, and floods could be the cause of damage. In such a case, water could have damaged the electrical and mechanical components.
Before buying salvage corvettes, consider the possible repair costs. The damage may seem minimal compared to the price of the corvette, but the repair costs could be massive.
