In the wake of flooding in Louisiana, AAA is warning motorists looking to purchase a used car to beware of flood-damaged vehicles for sale.
“We’ve seen this happen before,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “Water-damaged vehicles are moved quickly out of the flood zone, cleaned up and put into the used car market stream through private dealers, on resale sites like Craigslist and via auction houses.”
AAA has some advice for would-be used car buyers:
· Deal with reputable dealers.
