Flood cars from Sandy, refurbished and sold in KOTA Territory? - KOTA Territory News

Flood cars from Sandy, refurbished and sold in KOTA Territory?


Flood waters that came with Hurricane Sandy didn't just ruin homes and buildings, but tens of thousands of vehicles on the street.

Now, those vehicles are being sold as used cars in some areas across the Midwest, but are they heading our way?

Many dealers we spoke with including Black Hills Toyota said they wouldn't be buying those vehicles, but that doesn't mean other dealers won't.

The main problem would be corrosion of parts especially electronics from the water. But there are ways you can check.
"I would ask for a history report as much as possible, whether it be an Autocheck or a Carfax. Just do to the fact that you can actually see where it came from. If it comes from a coastal state you may want to double check and take it to one of your personal mechanics," says Used Car Manager, Darin Rittenour.
Rittenour says they are taking the same precautions as last time this happened with Hurricane Katrina.
