Called a salvage title, car was totaled by ins company and car was repaired. l be careful as frame damage is hard to see and repair. also will probably not be able to get full coverage on car with your insurance

Unless you know exactly how it got the reconstructed title never buy one, some people will argue that they are just as safe as any other car on the road, but I personally have seen so called reconstructs that dog walk down the road, seen control arms come loose due to poor welds, fenders, doors and some body panels disintegrate upon impact.
