I learned the hard way what "BRANDED" means on a title.
Basically....i was in a situation where i bought a toyota. Had a little damage to it but not much. bought it with a free and clear title. Got my new title from the state and it said "branded". yea...so.........if it was salvaged while under the current owner's name/title, it won't say it unless he/she got a new title saying it.
