UPDATE:
Hey guys sorry for my late reply,
Thank you all for your contribution to this post, I have been wary of buying this vehicle, and on further research, I decided to run the VIN CHECK confirmed my fears.

I found that
Primary DamageStripped
this is exactly what I was trying to {do/avoid}. Imagine if I did not make this research I would have ended up vehicle having the wrong spec, not friendly to climate, high fuel consumption, High MRSP, etc, please have a look at the report (It's only $15 if you guys don't want to spend $40 for a Carfax)

Hello everyone
Thanks for creating this awesome forum and meeting wonderful people here. I am looking to get a 2019 Volkswagen atlas or anything similar but I'm really interested in this one, unfortunately this car has salvage title and I am looking to the community to check if there is anything else I should be looking out for while doing my inspection day, and I will purchase the car report to see damage and other details.

Things I will be looking out for are
coolant or oil leads
Weird noises coming from the engine
check the transmission for slips and jolt
verify all the electronics are working properly

The asking price is $26,900 and it has 16100 miles with a Salvage Title.
Do you think this car worth the price? Any potential problem in the future?
If you guys have any suggestions on what to check.

Get a car fax and also see if you can get information from your DMV on the vehicle. Also, see if your local Police Dept can help you. Personally, I don't think that $26,900 is a deal for a four year old car with a salvage title. You should be able to buy a similar one with a good title for about $30- $32K. Don't worry about the mileage, they are well built cars and should run a long time if properly mainatained, Good luck!
Thanks for your suggestion, I'm going to get the Carfax and share it with you guys soon. I don't wanna have headache later on
