They seem to specialize in rebuilding flood damaged cars. They have some decent cars at very low prices and I have not found anything but good about them. Looking for something for my grandson.
There wasn't one specific car we were looking at. Just looking for general impressions before getting too interested. Lots of the cars at this web site have low mileage and would still be under warranty if they weren't branded. Good point about the insurance.What would you be interested in, which car. Previous poster is correct about flood cars in general. But not all flood cars were complete submersions, and I’d ask specifics for which ever car you may be interested in. There are ways to decontaminate wiring and if they replaced ecu’s and such when necessary there’s a lot less hassles down the road. I build hundreds of “totaled” cars when I had a shop that I sold, but I generally only bought clean title cars that were under the threshold to get the title stamped and almost all had factory warranties in place. There are shops that do this type of work that are very good at it and send out a nice vehicle. If you go this route double check with your insurance on coverage, some will not write branded titles.
They said they replace all electronics and harnesses. They have a red BMW Z4 that really got my attention. But, it's a convertible so water could have been anywhere. Too bad.Florida - flood - saltwater
Wouldn't do it if it was a salt water flooded car... especially one from that last storm that rolled through down there.
Once saltwater is in the electronics and harnesses, between sheet metal panels, it continues to corrode and equals nothing but future problems.
They can let a car dry out, drain/change fluids etc, but once saltwater wicks up into any electronics/harnesses. it will forever be an issue until those are totally pulled and replaced.
