Hello everyone - Hope this is in the right place
Thanks for creating this awesome forum and meeting the wonderful people here. I am looking to get a 2017 dodge ram 1500 vehicle and I am looking to the community to check if there is anything I should be looking out for while doing my inspection.

Things I will be looking out for are
coolant or oil leads
Weird noises coming from the engine
check the transmission for slips and jolt
verify all the electronics are working properly

They asking price is $17,4987 and it has 58500 miles with a Salvage Title.

If you guys have any suggestions on what to check.
Looking forward to joining this family, thanks

I'd stay away from that. Or if you want something to fix up I just wouldnt offer more than $9k. There is no reference for what Salvage vehicles are worth so it's literally worth whatever you're willing to pay and if the seller excepts. Even if they tell you why it has a salvage title, if you can't verify it with the insurance company...the explanation is useless.

Is it me or does it seem like that front wheel is sitting a little further back than it should almost or is touching the fender.
I see that too. But it could be an illusion caused by half of it being in the shade. Either way...I wouldn't buy that thing. I don't even think I'd spend $5k on that.

If you zoom in on that picture the wheel is not turned enough to be that close to the fender, nor is the tires big enough to be that close. Even if the tire was big enough it wouldn't be that big of a difference between the front and rear of that fender well.

Something is definitely jacked up with that front end.
