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.
