Ok, this example is a salvage vehicle, however, the tools are out there for checking used vehicle history, whether it's a clean or salvage title.

A Q60 forum member in Florida asked me to research a 2018 Q60 Red Sport RWD w/12k miles seen on this salvage auction site:

Looks good at 1st glance, right? "No visible damage"?

Well, popping this VIN into the my badvin.org account (I have a few free reports remaining from research earlier this year on an Audi RS5 SB potential purchase), it pulls up something entirely different:

And then this, too:

And that's a big "Hell, no!" on this example.

I'm laughing at the "Buy It Now" price of $34,950 on ridesafety.com, and even at $7,100 (current bid), maybe for the engine, drivetrain, wheels, and brakes, because can you imagine how tweaked the space frame is from the roll-over? Yikes!

Buyer beware!

They said it runs and drives! They just didn't say how well. The right rear wheel assembly appears to be gone. I can't see how anyone would expect to make any money rebuilding that mess without cutting corners. It would be interesting to check dimensions on some measurement points to see how far off from spec it is.

I would never buy a salvaged vehicle.

I wonder if the rebuilder was here asking questions?

Yup. Search the VIN in Google and see what it actually looked like before. Almost every Salvage car, you’ll find the Copart auction listing. That car sold for $6000 and it looked slaughtered before: https://en.bidfax.info/infiniti/q60...0-2018-white-30l-6-vin-jn1fv7ek0jm530707.html

edit: that auction was in 2019 in California. Here’s the same car again in 2021 in Florida, with flood damage 😂https://en.bidfax.info/infiniti/q60...0-2018-white-30l-6-vin-jn1fv7ek0jm530707.html
Banged up and flooded...geez..sad thing is someone is going to buy this without knowing, and will complain that Q's are junk and unreliable
