Buying a new car?

Vehicle buying tips.

As a time after floods just happened on the east coast, some totaled vehicles will slip through the system and become available for sale. A vehicle that has been in a flood is not a good choice to own. Water and electronics don’t mix well together. What we have found is over time, corrosion set in and wiring harness and control units need to be replaced. Lots of dollars.

How do you avoid one?

Have your favorite shop check it out. Things you can do it look under the dash, under carpets and in the corners of the trunk looking for water damage and mud. If it too low of price, be careful. Buy from reputable dealers. Be careful, your vehicle is one of the biggest expenses you own.
