Inspect used vehicles for water damage

Recent hurricanes and flooding in other regions of the country can have an impact on Arizonans considering the purchase of a car. It’s not uncommon for vehicles damaged by hurricanes or flood waters to be shipped hundreds of miles away and placed on the market. 

Prospective buyers can protect themselves by closely inspecting a vehicle before purchasing it. Remember, a flood-damaged car might smell of mildew. If the car doesn’t pass a literal smell test, walk away.

Tips for buying a used car are detailed in this post on the ADOT Blog.
