Woman Says She Unknowingly Purchased a Flood-Damaged Used Car
November 23, 2021
Flooding from the historic storms that swept across the United States this year left both houses and cars underwater. One of those vehicles was caught up during Hurricane Ida in a South Orange, New Jersey, parking lot in September, and is now filled with smelly mold. But experts warn after every major flood, thousands of vehicles like this one are cleaned up and resold to unsuspecting buyers. Joyce Darden, 80, says it happened to her used car, which she bought from Enterprise Car Sales for $17,000.
