Legally they are required to, but don't count on it. Two people in my neighborhood that bought cars have had problems with this. The one neighbor got a car with a salvage title(yet the car looked absolutely flawless), and the other had one that he later found out was hit in the front caused damage to the interior bumper where only the outside plastic "bumper" was replaced.

The person who had the salvage titled car sold to him didn't know about this for the entire time he owned the car and after owning it for about 6 years had traded it back in to the same dealer he bought the car from and a week later they called him asking him why he didnt mention the salvage status. Just a tad messed up!!
