A very knowledgeable and experienced auto auction buyer (for a large dealer) told me once regarding flood cars that a VIN check is fine, but won’t necessarily reveal flood history...so in addition to or in lieu of the vin check (and because he literally has a minute or two to evaluate each car), he mainly trusts his nose, when ch3cking the interior for any kind of musty smell, and looks for any rusted parts under the hood, usually small pieces of hardware and connectors that wouldn’t normally show corrosion.

Thanks Gary .

We will be lifting it and doing a thorough inspection .

Just unable to run it on my own today and thought maybe a fellow Bornie could get it done for me .

I know all reports may not be complete , but if it comes back a floater , why even waste the time going ?

That’s true for sure.

I bought a used car once that smelled like carpet cleaner, and sure enough the windshield leaked like a sieve. Won’t ever make that mistake again!

Good way to tell is put your hands under the seats and feel the springs. If the car has ever been flooded those springs will rust right away.
