Is it bad for a car to have a salvage title?

I'm looking at used car to buy on craigslist but the car has a salvage title. Is it a bad thing for a car to have a salvage title?

I would look the car over really good but having a salvage title on a vehicle isn't always a bad thing.

People repair and sell salvaged vehicles all the time and they're driven without problems.

A salvaged title doesn't mean that the car is a bad car so as long as the car checks out and is mechanically sound and the car is cheap enough I would buy it.
