Vehicle Flood Damage

1 reason not to by a new or used vehicle

At just, about every single car lot in the Carolinas auto sales will be down for the next several months.  This will be due solely to most of their vehicles receiving water and HVAC damage during the recent hurricane.  It is always very hard for dealerships to sell cars after major storms like the one the east coast just experienced.  Many consumers are just afraid that they will get ripped off and by a car that was damaged during the storm.

Many times that damage is not noticeable either.  More times than not the damage to the vehicle is inside of the heating and air system.  Mold often forms inside of the car or trucks HVAC system causing many problems.  Not only can the mold affect your vehicle’s performance, but it can also be very dangerous to your health.  This is probably the #1 reason why people do not buy vehicles after major storms.

If you do decide to take a chance and try to land a great deal, just be sure to do your research first.  Make sure to confirm that the car you are thinking of buying did not come from the Carolinas anytime recently.

    Be extremely careful about buying any vehicle after a flood. Too many small dealerships will sell these damaged vehicles knowing that they will not last. They will not give you your money back either when the vehicle does break down.
