Do you know or does anyone know what the rusted white areas could be? Thinking about buying this car, it was a salvage car but has been fixed. 2013 civic ex coupe. Im hesitant to buy the car because of the rust at such a early year. Im not sure if it could be due to the radiator breaking during the front end accident. Any ideas?
Looks like road salt corrosion. Car from up north? Mine was, has some of that. It’s just surface stuff, nothing terrible.

Do you know or does anyone know what the rusted white areas could be? The areas around the spark plug bolts are heavily rusted aswell. Thinking about buying this car, it was a salvage car but has been fixed. 2013 civic ex coupe. Im hesitant to buy the car because of the rust at such a early year. Im not sure if it could be due to the radiator breaking during the accident or maybe a flood? The car was purchased from an auction in providence RL
Any ideas on what I should do? 8B02256F-BE51-43CB-8C38-0A6A1204767A.jpeg

That ca
Im looking to buy a honda civic 2013 coupe. Everything checked out besides small white debri on the engine. The car is salvage title and had been in a front end. Im thinking maybe debri from the radiator pump. Any ideas?
That car, looks to me, like it was in a flood...
RUN AWAY as fast as you can.

I would NEVER buy a salvage title car, especially one that's been in a flood.

Like Teeps said, I would never even consider a Salvage title. If you're just looking for a used commuter car (considering you're buying a 2013 civic, you probably are) then it's a total buyers market. There's literally millions of options, don't buy a salvage title.

Where are you and/or the car located?
