Hello guys
Thanks for creating this awesome forum and meeting wonderful people here. I am looking to get a 2002 Chevrolet s10 zr2 or anything similar but I'm really interested in this one, unfortunately this car has salvage title and I am looking to the community to check if there is anything else I should be looking out for while doing my inspection day, and I will purchase the car report to see damage and other details.

Some things that I will be looking out for during my inspection today:

noises in the engine
check transmission for slips jolts etc
verify all electrics / features / lights,
coolant or oil leaks
They are asking for the price of $14,900 and it has 59000 miles with a Salvage Title.

Thanks for everyone comments, I've gone through everyone comments
I decide to run the VIN Check on this luckily found the auction records but unluckily the auction records is removed, as it's already sold. What do you guys think, there was accident reported but I can't find the pictures! please have a look at the report (It's only $15 if you guys don't want to spend $40 for a Carfax)

here is the report: Get Instant Vehicle History Report

I would agree 15k seems high, it is a nice looking truck with lower miles though and not my money so do what you are comfortable with. Would definitely check into state laws and also with your insurance company before purchasing if you haven't yet. Have only had one salvage title that caused me issues a few years back with transferring title, have heard some nightmares of people having issues with their state inspection laws at DMV or even with their insurance companies not covering salvaged vehicles. Market has definitely been crazy with shortages and bloated price tags, but haven't noticed quite the jump in the used light truck market as they just typically aren't as desirable in the collectors market. Add the salvage title to that and it makes your potential resale that much harder if you do decide to sell one day.

Good luck whatever you decide.
