Hey Kia team! Hope you all are doing well, thanks for having me here, straight to the topic, I'm interested in owning a 2015 Kia Forte , This car has a SALVAGE TITLE! here in my location, before ending the deal, I really want to make sure that I'm getting a good reliable car for what I pay, I want to know that what I should be looking for when purchasing this corolla, anything to take into consideration, what to look for or any suggestion you guys have, please share it with me,

Some things that I will be looking out for during my inspection day:
noises in the engine
check transmission for slips jolts etc
verify all electrics / features / lights,
coolant or oil leaks
They are asking for the price of $ 7,250 and it has 90000 Miles with a Salvage Title. Is it worth it or not?

If you guys have any suggestions on what to look at.
thanks

You got all the things to check.
Why does it have the salvage title? Check for poor repair, poor paint job, alignment issues, water marks/lines...

Korean cars were pretty bad in recent memory, so they are still at a discount to similar Honda/Toyota options. That said, a 2015 Forte is from the recent time when Korean cars are frankly nearly as good as the Japanese options. I personally would happily take a 2015 Forte compared to a 2015 Corolla or Civic, but it should less expensive than either of those options. If prices are equal, get a Corolla/Civic. You can get the Forte in a stick shift too which is nifty.
