Beware of Buying a Car - Vehicles From Flood Zones to Hit Used Car Market
There are thousands upon thousands of cars from hurricane flood zones that weren't damaged to point of being totaled. A percentage of these flood damaged vehicles (trucks and cars) are going to show up for sale in other parts of the U.S.
If you're in the market to buy a used car over the coming months, be very cautious.
Two key self-protection steps:
- Have the vehicle inspected by a competent mechanic before you buy the car; and,
- Get the CarFax report.
