After Spring Flood Warnings, Schuette Reminds Residents to be on the Lookout for Flood Damaged Vehicles When Making A Car Purchase*
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette cautioned Michigan drivers searching for a new vehicle to be on the lookout for flood damaged cars, trucks and SUVs. Recent flood warnings due to heavy rains means there is a greater chance vehicles could have suffered flood damage. Many of which will end up on the used car market. Vehicles with flood damage can appear for sale on the internet or at car lots far away from the storm area, without any mention of flood damage or obvious signs of damage. Water can damage vital parts of a car including airbag sensors, brakes, and electrical systems —and the damage may not show up right away. Weeks or months could pass before evidence of damage is known, putting the purchase past warranty and leaving the driver without a working car.
