    I am considering purchasing a 2002 CR-V. The dealer describes it as follows
    (and says it has no warranty):

    "Several months ago it got involved in a minor accident with a small damage
    to the front as a result. It had fenders, bumper cover, hood and one
    headlight replaced. The air bags were also replaced. There was no damage
    to the frame, engine or suspension. This CR-V was repaired with all
    original Honda parts by a licensed shop with extensive body repair
    experience. It is currently registered in California after passing all
    state-mandated safety tests."

    There is almost no mileage on this automobile.

    I am trying to understand what the Junk Title and Salvage Title (as per the
    Carfax report) mean. The description indicates very little damage, all of
    which has been repaired. Normally, an insurance company won't 'total' a car
    unless it is worth less than its fair market value.

    Would I be able to purchase an extended warranty on this vehicle?

    So, what does it all mean?

    IMHO I'd say it was a loser. I don't live in CA so I don't know the law
    there. Best leave it alone.

    As a rule, you subtract at least 50% for a salvage title, no matter how nice
    of a job they did.
