Salvage history, would be referring to the salvage title on a vehicle meaning the insurance company at one point deemed that vehicle totaled out at one point due to a accident or flooding, where it would cost more to fix the car than what it was worth. People will pick these vehicles up for cheap and fix them.

A salvage title can also be from a police seizure or abandoned vehicle sold by a PD or the state, apart from the above-mentioned insurance write-offs. Check with your insurance agent, they may charge more to insure a salvage-titled vehicle.
