How to avoid buying used cars damaged by Matthew flooding


MATTHEWS FLOOD WATERS LEFT THOUSANDS OF CARS UNDERWATER. WEEKS LATER…OFFICIALS ARE WARNING YOU … NOT TO BUY THOSE DAMAGED VECHICLES… W-N-C-T’S ZORA STEPHENSON EXPLAINS.. .. WHAT BUYERS NEED TO LOOK FOR… AS THINGS GET BACK TO NORMAL AFTER HURRICANE MATTHEW.. IT GETS HARD TO TELL WHAT THINGS WERE EFFECTED.. ..ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO VEHICLES.. TAKE THIS HONDA FOR EXAMPLE. ON THE OUTSIDE IT’S PERFECTLY NORMAL “THERE’S NO WATER LINES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.” WHAT IS WRONG IS THE SMELL, IT’S JUST AWFUL AND THAT’S NOT THE ONLY THING. “YOU CAN SEE THERE THAT THE FLUIDS SUPPOSED TO BE A NICE CHERRY RED IT’S BROWN ON THIS ONE.” THE WORST PART…. SINCE MOST FLOODED CARS ARE LEFT WITH INTERNAL ISSUES IT’S EASY FOR SOMEONE TO FIX THEM UP…SELL THEM…AND GET AWAY WITH IT. “IF THEY JUST REPAIR THE ISSUE THEMSELVES OR HAVE SOMEBODY ELSE REPAIR IT PER THEIR INSTRUCTIONS THERE’S NO PAPER TRAIL INDICATING THAT THE CAR WAS EVER FLOODED.” IF YOU’RE BUYING A CAR AFTER A MAJOR FLOOD EVENT THERE’S FOUR THINGS YOU SHOULD DO BEFORE YOU FINALIZE THAT PURCHASE, FIRST, CHECK ALL THE FLUIDS, SECOND, MAKE SURE THERE’S NO MILDEW OR CORROSION, AND THEN LASTLY, AND THE EASIEST THING, GET IT CHECKED BY A PROFESSIONAL.” IF YOU CHOOSE TO BUY A FLOODED CAR…PREPARE FOR SOME PROBLEMS DOWN THE ROAD. IN GREENVILLE. ZORA STEPHENSON. 9 ON YOUR SIDE. IF YOUR CAR WAS FLOODED.. IT COULD STILL RUN… BUT MECHANICS SAY GET IT INSPECTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
