Default To Auction or not to Auction??? That is the question..

Greetings folks! I'm looking into buying a car, and came across an auction. I'm really not sure about this method of buying. Can any of you folks share any car auction experiences? Whether good or bad, I'd like to hear/read from you.

Another thing, I've noticed some vehicles have rebuilt/salvage titles, is there any big deal buying one of those?

What do you folks think of it?

If you thinking about fixing the car up and driving it might check with your state vehicle registration department. Some states have issues with cars that have salvage titles.

I'm not so sure about auctions. It sounds kind of unsafe. You don't really know what you're getting. It's best to get from a dealer or something like that. This way you have all the papers and information on it and you can test the car out before hand too.

I have always been afraid of buying a car at auction because cars that dealers take in trade that need more work than they want to do end up at the auction in many cases. There are some good deals to be had from the auction but I think there are more bad ones than good and you are taking your chances.

I think you need to check the vehicle which is there at auction.because once you have purchased it ,you wont be able to return back.I have never bought any vehicle at auction.
