Watch out for flood-damaged cars

Watch out for flood-damaged cars

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The Better Business Bureau wants you to beware of flood and hurricane-damaged cars. If you’re looking for a car, know that cars that have been flooded may be entering the market, especially from areas hit hard by Hurricane Ida. It is common after major floods for scam artists to try and pawn off flooded vehicles as standard second-hand vehicles, according to an agency spokesman.

Don O’Brien says these flood-damaged vehicles could show up at auto auctions, used car dealerships, and in classified ads.

He says when considering a vehicle purchase you should: ask to see the title and be especially worried if it’s stamped “salvage”; carefully check the dashboard to make sure all of the gauges are working; check the electronic components and flex some wires under the dash. Wet wires become brittle once they dry; check the condition of the fabrics; and check under the hood for standing water, mud, or grit.
