The title is really all I wanted to say. But it had to be said.
There are whole industries that profit off this human misery by spreading it around. They buy up "totals" for pennies on the pound, recondition, and
send them all over the country having "locals" advertise and pose as the car owner (that are more than happy to come to you or meet you in a bank
parking lot for the deal that's too good to be true).
A flooded car is junk. Paint, new interior, doesn't matter. It's junk. Don't buy any used car from a person, a lot, anywhere (especially in the
southern US) for at least a year.
That's my advice, and I'm sticking to it.
