Salvage cars are what I've/we been driving for 15 years..
If you pick the right one(s) you can save thousands.
My current 06 KIA Spectra had 24k miles on it when I bought it "salvage".
It now has almost 40k on it. My son drives a 2008 Hyundai Accent Hatch and my daughter drives a 2004 Hyundai Sonata. Both of these cars were salvage.
So don't let the "branding" of the title bother you..
I would suggest some injector cleaner and fresh gas...Maybe a new battery..
Check the crank sensor for damaged wiring. I'd say wait on the timing belt until you get the engine going...just don't high rev the engine and baby the throttle. You may find "problems" but they probably won't be big ones..
CHECK the brakes and that the car "rolls" as the Sonatas tend to "lock up" just sitting.
Keep us posted on what you find...
