Information on flood-damaged vehicles for sale

(Sep 20, 2017)

Dear Neighbor, I recently received the following information regarding flood-damaged vehicles from the recent hurricanes in Texas, Louisiana, and Florida that may be for sale and I hope you find it useful. Things to check for to determine if a vehicle is flood-damaged: • Water stains, mold, mud or sand under the carpets, seats, floor mats, inside roof cloth and under the dashboard. • Rusty metal inside the car. The inside of a car does not usually rust. • Musty odors in the trunk and in the passenger compartment (especially when running the A/C or heat). • Fog or moisture inside interior and exterior lights and excessive fogging of windows and condensation on windows. • Mud or grit in the spare tire compartment and under the hood. When checking under the hood, be sure to look under wires, boxes and in hidden areas. • Brittle wires under the dashboard, speakers and hood. • Oxidation under the hood. Oxidation on metal can look like white powder or it could even be small holes called pitting. A checklist of items that may indicate a vehicle is flood-damaged is available at www.insurance.pa.gov , by clicking on “Auto” under “Insurance Coverage Resources.” Flood-impacted vehicles that have been issued a certificate of salvage are required to undergo an enhanced vehicle safety inspection prior to being issued a title in Pennsylvania. Upon successful completion of the enhanced inspection, a Read more
