Hurricane Sandy Flooded Cars Make Way Across Nation

OK, here’s the deal Dallas Fort Worth. Hurricane Sandy really did a number on the Northeast. The chances of many of the cars which were flooded out being sold for salvage is pretty high. If you are looking at purchasing a used car in the coming months be wary. If you don’t think that a flooded car from the Northeast can make its way to Texas, think again. In fact, those selling salvaged vehicles are going to do everything they can to get the vehicle as far away from the flood zones as possible as to not draw suspicion.

So, how can you check to see if a Dallas Fort Wroth used car you are looking to purchase has been flooded? Check the video below for someĀ  good tips.


Of course, your best bet is to bring the car to a certified technician for a thorough inspection. The bottom line is that if you suspect that a car has been in a flood, DON’T BUY IT! Also, don’t just assume that all of the flooded car up north are going to stay there, there is a good chance that they will make their way as salvages across the country.

If you plan on buying a used car in Dallas or Fort Worth, be aware that you could be purchasing a previously flooded vehicle. So, if you want to just avoid all of the hassle, just come see your Buick GMC dealer, Freeman Grapevine. We will not buy, nor sell a car that has previously been flooded.
