    Would you buy a rebuilt ZHP with a salvaged title for a daily driver?

    I'm looking for opinions:

    I understand there are a lot of dependencies, but from a high level, would you buy a fixed, working, clean ZHP to use as a daily driver?

    Thanks

    Depends on the original damage. Some damage that was fixed I wouldn't touch.

    Our cars can be totaled for very little damage nowadays, so a very fuzzy "maybe" is my response. Basically if it were just some bumpers and fender damage with zero frame damage, I might consider it. That, and the consideration of a low price.

    Agreed & Understood. Let's say there was no frame damage. Is expected pricing roughly 60% of an accident free car, similarly equipped?

    I'd personally stay away from frame damage and any hard panel damage (roof, quarters, pillars). In addition, flood damage I wouldn't mess with either.

    If there are no after affects from the crash then the pricing is ok i guess..

    Unless I saw the car before, during, and after the damage repair, with it inspected professionally, I would never consider buying ANY branded title car.

    Depends on the damage and the price. Definitely wouldn't pay a ZHP premium though - so if you can find a non-ZHP non-salvage 330 for a similar price, that might be the way to go.
