Edmunds does not provide pricing estimates for vehicles that have major mechanical and/or body damage or for vehicles with "branded" titles (e.g. salvaged, flooded, frame damaged, etc.). In general, though, we believe that a salvage title decreases a vehicle's value by up to 50% of the True Market Value (TMV) for an identical vehicle with a "clean" title.
