A previous salvage title indicates that the vehicle was declared a total loss by the insurance company at some point. However, this doesn't necessarily imply that the vehicle was irreparably damaged; some have only minor issues. We assess these vehicles, recognizing their potential, purchase them from the insurance company, restore them to their original state, and offer them for sale at a price that's up to 30% lower than an equivalent vehicle with a clean title. This presents a substantial opportunity for cost savings on your part!

Purchasing from a trustworthy dealership eliminates any concerns. Every single vehicle in our inventory undergoes an examination by the Minnesota Department of Vehicle Services. Moreover, you have the option to have your chosen vehicle inspected by your personal mechanic before finalizing the purchase. Additionally, we provide photographic documentation of each vehicle before the repair process starts. This allows you to gauge the extent of the damage, including airbag deployment and other pertinent details.

Yes. This is a very common question! Prior salvage vehicles can be insured through most insurance companies.

Certainly. Nonetheless, specific criteria apply to securing financing for prior salvage vehicles from various banks. To discover suitable options that have successfully catered to our customers, feel free to contact us directly.

We welcome cash, checks, personal checks, cashier's checks, and credit cards as forms of payment. Please note that credit card transactions will include a processing fee of 2.75% imposed by the credit card processing company.

The majority of our vehicles are accompanied by a 90-day, 3,000-mile bumper to bumper warranty. For our minivans, a One-Year/12,000-mile warranty is automatically included upon purchase, ensuring extended protection. This means your coverage persists beyond your departure from the lot. While we strive for accuracy, human errors can occur occasionally. It's worth noting that most warranty claims arise from regular wear and tear rather than faulty repairs. Should your vehicle necessitate warranty-related repairs, simply reach out directly to our warranty email at aceauto169@gmail.com

Kindly take into account that specific vehicles, like trade-ins, might not come with a warranty. Refer to the individual vehicle advertisement for more detailed information.

Due to our insurance policy, we are unable to provide loaner vehicles.

All repairs take place directly at our Ace Auto establishment. Our team comprises 11 highly skilled and excellently trained mechanics.

Following the deployment of an airbag in an accident, the original airbag cannot be "repaired" and must be replaced. This process encompasses replacing or resetting the airbag module and fitting a new airbag in its place. At Ace Auto, we exclusively employ OEM airbags. When replaced accurately, these airbags function precisely as intended, should the vehicle encounter another accident.

In certain accident scenarios, a skilled technician might conduct frame restoration. In this process, the vehicle is secured by clamps underneath the body, enabling the utilization of hydraulic tools for essential pulling and alignment procedures. The mechanics at Ace Auto expertly realign the structural elements to their correct specifications. Given our specialized focus on distinct makes and models, our frame technicians possess comprehensive familiarity with the precise dimensions of our vehicles. It's noteworthy that all vehicles undergo alignment checks at Ace Auto prior to being offered for sale.

Certainly, we do!
