There are cars on European roads that have been issued a salvage title in the U.S. How is this possible? There are two probable reasons. After the car was in a critical accident and was issued a salvage title, instead of being scrapped, the car was illegally rebuilt and exported instead. The second possibility is that the car was involved in VIN-cloning, by which the identity of the car was stolen, so that we read the history of another car instead of that one. This usually means fraud or and stolen vehicles. There are 635 Land Rover vehicles that were exported from the U.S. to Europe with a salvage history.
A car with a history of being stolen in the U.S. is sometimes sold in Europe as if nothing had ever happened. There are 43 Land Rover vehicles with a history of being stolen.
