Rebuilt titles mean the car was previously totaled out by an insurance company. There could be any number of issues with the car, depending on the person(s) rebuilding it. I've heard both horror and success stories from these types of cars. So, to give you a good estimate would be neigh impossible. Depending on what your budget is, you may be able to find something better with a clean title that hasn't been involved in an accident previously.

Unless you're really handy as a mechanic, stay away from it. No telling what damage it had or will need in the future. Plus, at that mileage, it's going to start to need everything serviced.


With high miles like that and a clouded title I would not pay $2,000 even it it appeared to be in good shape.
