Before you buy your new car make sure to do research before being stuck with a flood-damaged car.
Weeks after Hurricane Harvey and Irma flooded many southern states, local mechanics are warning Ohio drivers to watch out for flood damage vehicles being sold to the public.
Paul Balestra, owner of Dublin Road Auto Care says despite the damage flood waters can cause, these cars often find their way onto local lots and then local roads.
“It’s like soaking your toaster in the tub and expecting to make toast with it,” Balestra said.
Carfax estimates more than 325,000 flooded cars are back in use across the nation.
