Auto Salvage Fraud - don't get stuck with a flood car

Tips to avoid being scammed with a flooded salvage vehicle:

-   Select a reputable car dealer
-   Inspect the vehicle for water stains, mildew, sand or silt under the carpets, floor mats, headline cloth and behind the dashboard.
-  Inspect the interior upholstery and door panels for fading.
-  Check for rust on screws in console or areas water normally doesn't reach.
-  Check for mud or grit in the spare tire compartment, alternator crevices, behind wiring harnesses, around the small recesses of starter motors, power steering pumps and relays.
-  Check for moisture, mildew or grime inside the seatbelt retractors
-  Check door speakers as they will often be damaged due to flooding
-  Have a certified mechanic inspect the vehicle prior to purchasing it
-  Inspect the title and ownership papers for any potential salvage fraud like carfax.com
-  Look under the hood for signs of oxidation
-  Check to see if a vehicle may have been flooded using VinCheck at www.nicb.org
