Don't Get Soaked By Flood Damaged Cars

Posted on August 18, 2019 by Trevor Schoborg

Flood damaged cars will be flooding the car or truck market everywhere but minus the tell-tale signs of water damage and mold to provide them away. Vehicles will undoubtedly be restored to new-like condition, water damage and mold erased to the extent possible, sold many times to obtain a clear title that will not reveal flood damage, and made available on the market for some unsuspecting consumer who's interested in a car with a seemingly disguised water-damaged past. But you can find actions you can take to safeguard yourself against vehicles with hidden information.

Consumer Beware HASN'T More True

Consumers need not be victims of a car's watery past. You may get a car history report simply by putting the car's vehicle identification number (VIN) in to the CARFAX site, and wait a few moments for CARFAX to find a nationwide database of information.

Research is gathered on the car's title, maintenance record, registration, and odometer. If this car is stolen, has already established a troubled mechanical past, or had the odometer rolled back, it'll become obvious once the data appears on your own screen and info on the automobile is matched to the report.

A title check will reveal in case a car has been salvaged, flooded, rebuilt, or is actually a "lemon." Consumers can and really should protect themselves against being rooked in the auto market.
