My 09 Subaru Forester was totaled last week. UGH! Now I have to buy a new car. I looked at two 2011 Subaru Outbacks today, both had been in an accident.
The first said the passenger side quarter panel had been replaced, but the frame had not been bent. Would a 2011 Suburu Outback with 22,000 miles be totaled if the frame wasn’t damaged? This sounds a little odd to me. It had a “rebuilt” title. What the heck does that mean?
The second had backed into something with a tow hitch/bike rack. The back axle “subframe” was slightly bent. 2011 with only 8,000. The sales person said it made the car very slightly more prone to serious damage IF it got rear ended.
So, what is the implications of the rear axle sub frame being slightly bent. What is the implications of a “rebuilt” title.
Thanks, I’m an accountant and know NOTHING about cars!!
