Clipped Cars

Clipped Cars Clipped cars are also called “clip jobs”, with front and rear halves coming from 2 different vehicles. As a rule, these are badly damaged accident cars where the irreparable half is simply cut off, and the remaining part is weld with the remains of another car. Often, only a qualified car technician can tell a clipped car from a solid one.

Are Clipped Cars Safe?

Certainly not. A clipped car can literally come apart while you are driving it. Not just that, the clip job completely ruins the carefully calibrated crashing balance engineered in modern cars. To ensure the driver’s and passengers’ safety and keep them relatively intact, some parts are designed to crumble at precise times and places to absorb the destructive energy when an accident occurs. Air-bag deployment also is carefully calibrated. Experts say that the synchronization is totally ruined in clipped cars. And just imagine what can happen to a person inside a car that breaks apart at full speed…

How to avoid buying Clipped Cars?

If you are buying a used car, always start with VIN number check and vehicle history report. This way you will know if a car was in a severe accident or had other problems in the past. Only if vehicle history report doesn’t reveal any threats, you can ask a trustworthy mechanic to inspect the car. Visit our homepage for more information.

Unfortunateky, the insurance company can repair a damaged car in this way. Just because clipping 2 parts is cheaper than repairing properly or replacing it, and the contract states that it’s the body shop who’s responsible for the repair. That is why you should always ask for references before you choose an insurer and the body shop.
