How do totaled, flood-damaged vehicles get to car lots?

It may be early spring, but those in Pennsylvania and across the mid-Atlantic know that the long hurricane season is just around the corner. Heavy rains and flooding can cause tremendous damage to homes and other property, and that damage is not always visible right away. In fact, it is not unusual for vehicles to sustain serious and even dangerous damage during storm season. Sometimes, a consumer may unknowingly purchase a flood-damaged vehicle.

How do you spot a flooded car?

Water damage is one of the worst things that can happen to your vehicle. Once a car has been in a flood, the odds are good that it will never be "as good as new" again. However, that won't stop used car dealers from snapping them up for pennies on the dollar and transporting them well away from the flooded areas and reselling them (at a much higher price) to unsuspecting consumers.
