What to do if Your Car is Flooded

By November 1, 2012

Follow me on:

With so much water inundating the East Coast, there are a lot of you out there who will be facing the reality of a car that spent some time partially submerged. Water can be disastrous to a vehicle, especially if it rose high enough to start to fill the interior. All of those electrical connections and computers are very sensitive to moisture, and may suffer. If you have full coverage insurance, it's best to let them decide what they want to do with your car. Even if you get it back and things seem fine, there can be trouble related to flooding that doesn't rear its head for a year. If you had less insurance, you'll have to roll the dice on the damage. Before you jump in and turn the key, you should check out these Ten Steps to Follow if Your Car is in a Flood. You could save yourself a very expensive repair bill and sneak away with only a little clean up.
