4. Scam of the week

I've found cars from dealers that had the most auctions or did impressive repairs. Remember to check every vehicle of your interest at Copart and IAAI on autoAstat.


Auctions: 1

Selling this vehicle will be difficult. The previous condition is just horrific! I would stay away from it!


Auctions: 82

It's always important to check autoAstat before buying cars at salvage auto auctions.


5. Cars with the most bids

Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
