Flood Damaged Vehicles on the Rise in Virginia

Following Superstorm Sandy, Virginia and many other states are seeing an influx of flood damaged vehicles. 
Most people are used to asking for a Carfax report, but that does not always help. If you go to buy a car, it is often a hidden danger because it does not always have to be reported. Sunni Brown with the Virginia DMV says insurance companies are only required to report flood damage that they have seen if they pay more than $3,500.
People should look for telltale signs like grit in engine compartments, rusted screws, newly shampooed upholstery and a smell of must or mold.
Make sure you ask the right questions and thoroughly inspect the car before making the purchase.
